Cultural & Educational Programs

At Goodwin House Alexandria, you’ll have access to a wide choice of creative and educational opportunities, such as pottery and painting classes. You can also tread the boards in a theatrical production, attend a lecture or debate the merits of the latest bestseller at a book group meeting.

The community is convenient for local attractions like the Schlesinger Center and Old Town Alexandria, as well as for trips to museums in Washington, D.C.

Physical & Spiritual Wellness

Along with cultural enrichment, we aim to promote an active and healthy lifestyle. You’ll have 24-hour access to our well-equipped fitness center, and day-time schedules filled with group exercise classes and time for you to swim your finest crawl or try water aerobics in our heated indoor pool.

We offer tasty, nutritious meals in a choice of casual, formal and outdoor settings. Cooking sessions and market specials give you tips and new ingredients should you need inspiration for your own culinary creations.

With our roots firmly planted in a tradition of spirituality, we celebrate all walks of life. Our chapel services cover a variety of denominations and faiths. As with any activity at Goodwin House, there’s no pressure to attend.

Resident Engagement

There’s more to staying engaged than staying active–we encourage you to find your voice and have your say. You can participate in resident councils and committees or get involved in volunteering.

From the moment you walk through the front door, we aim to create a sense of home at Goodwin House. And we empower you to enjoy that home as you wish, whether that means fewer schedules, more singing, or staying cozy in your private apartment. We want you to enjoy life here! To see for yourself, why not schedule a personal visit to our Alexandria campus to discuss your future?
