TYSONS, VA–Mather LifeWays, a Chicago-based organization, is now accepting priority reservations for The Mather, a proposed new Life Plan Community for people 62 and better, in Tysons, VA.

Life Plan Communities are lifestyle communities in which people can pursue new passions and priorities, with a plan in place that supports aging well.

  • 24-hour concierge, valet parking, scheduled shuttle transportation, and nearby Metro service
  • Priority access to The Mather Life Centre, which provides a full continuum of living options, including assisted living, memory support, and skilled nursing care suites, with various health plan coverage options

“We are excited about our plan to build a forward-thinking Life Plan Community in Tysons,” said Mary Leary, CEO and president of Mather LifeWays. “Tysons is fast becoming a centrally located lifestyle hub that offers unique residential, cultural, dining, and transportation options. Not only will residents enjoy a vibrant community, but they will also benefit from a NextraordinarySM lifestyle that is uniquely Mather. Our amenities and program offerings center around six dimensions of wellness that are supported by research from Mather LifeWays nationally recognized Institute on Aging.”

In addition to wellness-focused lifestyle programs, The Mather will offer well-appointed apartment homes with Smart Home Technology, amenity-rich community spaces, and lush green space. “The Mather will be luxury of a different kind for leading-edge Boomers who wish to plan ahead to live life to the fullest,” said Leary.

The Mather will provide numerous benefits in the area, including:

  • Increased housing options for older adults who desire maintenance-free living
  • Added retail on Westpark Drive that will activate the streetscape and enhance walkability • Significant green space, with all parking and loading below grade
  • An urban park with walking paths, sitting areas, an urban green, a dog park, and a connection to existing neighborhood trails.

The Mather is projected to open in 2022. Pricing will include a one-time entrance fee that is 90% refundable to the resident or resident’s estate, and a monthly service fee. Prices will be dependent upon apartment size, location, service package, and health plan selected.
