More About Vinson Hall Retirement Community - For Military Officers & Families

What residents can expect.

As a Life Plan Community, we offer independent living with access to a continuum of care. These levels of living include assisted living, skilled nursing and rehab, memory care, and in-residence home care. We also offer temporary respite care to area families who care for a loved one.

Residents who move into one of our independent living apartments can expect several advantages over living at home, including:

  • A lovely maintenance-free residence and community
  • Camaraderie among friendly and interesting neighbors
  • Activities and amenities that entertain, stimulate and promote wellness
  • The security of knowing our continuum of care is available on-site, if ever needed
  • Services that focus on hospitality and convenience

While our independent living residences are reserved for retired military and government employees plus their families, our continuum of care is open to all area seniors for direct admittance.

For residents, not for profit.

Vinson Hall is a not-for-profit community, supported by the Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation (NMCGRF) a 501(c)(3) organization. All our revenue, whether it be resident fees, charitable donations or NMCGRF revenue, is reinvested into the community to enrich the lives of residents, not outside stakeholders.

Our mission’s history.

Our community began as a labor of love, conceived by the Navy Officers’ Wives’ Club of Washington, D.C. Back in 1959, this selfless group had the vision of creating a community that was “secure, companionable, and dignified” — a home where kindness and socializing would flourish. This seed of an idea for Navy widows quickly captured the attention of senior sea service leaders, as well as Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard wives’ clubs worldwide. Two years later, the Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation was formed to support this endeavor.

On June 23, 1969, the vision came to life. Vinson Hall Retirement Community opened its doors to a senior living lifestyle of dignity, security and friendship to sea service widows regardless of financial status.

Over the years, the community expanded, and today we offer assisted living and nursing residence at Arleigh Burke Pavilion, which opened in 1992; The Sylvestery, a memory care assisted living residence opened in 2003; the Independent Living Building opened in 2014; and Arleigh Burke’s short-term rehabilitation, which opened in 2015.

Community partnerships.

To promote our mission of helping seniors live life “their way,” Vinson Hall Retirement Community and Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation form meaningful partnerships, often collaborating with other not-for-profit groups to extend our reach of community and national service.

We partner with local grade schools and volunteer groups to provide moral support for families of deployed troops.

We believe that by reaching out and giving back, everybody benefits.

Standing Out

As far as Mary Doyle was concerned, all retirement communities were the same. They all offered the same features and amenities, the same care and assistance. That was before Mary visited...
