Adult day care seeks to relocate and expand in Springfield office building

The third floor of an office building in Springfield could become dedicated space for an adult day care. 

8003 Forbes Place LLC is seeking Fairfax County’s permission to bring a more than 15,000-square-foot adult day care for up to 200 adults to an office building at 8003 Forbes Place, according to an April 19 application submitted to the county.

The remaining two floors of the office building would remain available for office uses. The facility would require the county to approve a special exception. Four picnic tables and benches on the northeastern side of the building are proposed, according to the application.

“The building is conveniently located near the Capital Beltway, allows for safe and convenient access and parking, provides outdoor space for adults, and meets all accessibility requirements,” land use lawyer Sara Mariska wrote in a statement of justification on the applicant’s behalf.

The applicant is currently operating an adult day care in the Calvary Church of Nazarene (8220 Little River Turnpike) in Annandale. The application proposes relocating and enlarging the existing program to the property in Springfield. 

Last July, Annandale Today reported that the program was under the threat of eviction. It’s operated by Friends Health Care Team at Calvary Church and provides nursing, physical and social activities and other services to older adults.
