The Bainum Family
A Long-standing Tradition of Caring for You in All We Do
Robert and Charmaine Bainum founded Fairfax Nursing Center in 1964 with the goal of providing each resident the best, specialized nursing care in a setting that feels like home, with a staff that treats everyone like family. The Bainum’s firmly believed then, as they do now, that all residents should be able to lead purposeful and productive lives. In keeping true to the Bainum’s vision of compassionate care, Fairfax Nursing Center became a pioneer of sorts—offering social and recreational programs, as well as extras like hair salons, restaurant-style dining and even pet therapy, well before many other nursing homes across the United States.
Today, Robert and Charmaine still proudly oversee the operations of Fairfax Nursing Center, along with The Gardens Assisted Living and The Woodlands Retirement Community. What’s more, the Bainum’s five children are dedicated to continuing the Bainum Healthcare Family’s tradition of excellence by constantly striving to maintain an unrivalled level of quality for every level of care.
