The Jefferson

900 N. Taylor St.
Arlington Virginia 22203
Juli K. Swanson, LNHA, CMCA, Executive Director and General Manager

Just one block from the Ballston Metro, The Jefferson has been open since 1992, providing independent senior living as well as assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation. The condominiums are sold with no buy-in fee beyond the price of the unit, and include access to meals, activities, housekeeping and transportation.

Residents of the luxury high-rise, who cheekily call themselves Jeffersonians, know that each day is what you make of it. They Metro into the city, go shopping right across the street, ride bikes. Inside the community, exercise programs include something for everyone, from novice to advanced: water aerobics, a walking club, Tai Chi, yoga, line dancing and more.

There is a schedule of live entertainment and guest lectures to anticipate. People love spending time in their attractive, comfortable condos, which they decorate and can renovate.

Jefferson residents report a strong sense of community as well as individual happiness. The core of any such community is a committed staff. The Jefferson has achieved tremendous longevity in its team members. The executive director and the associate executive director have been there for 13 and 15 years, respectively. 

Out of 200 total team members, 113 have been with the Jefferson for at least 5 years, 78 for at least 10 years, 66 for at least 15 years and 21 for at least 20.

“We believe our staff longevity is part of the reason why we are so successful,” says executive director Juli Swanson, “and provide high quality services to those in Arlington looking for senior living options.”
