Visiting with a pet brings back wonderful memories, allowing for a meaningful connection to happier times. Pet visitation has been medically proven to have a calming effect and touching animals helps chase away loneliness, depression, and withdrawal. The love of animals never diminishes with age. MVNRC works with Fairfax County’s Pets on Wheels Program (by clicking on this link you will leave www.MVNRC.net) to connect pets with the residents of our facility. If you would like to bring a pet to Mt. Vernon Nursing & Rehab Center, you will need to have a current vaccination record. Please click here to see our pet policy form and guidelines. Fill in the form and bring it with you upon your visit.
