About Brighton Gardens of Friendship Heights

Brighton Gardens provides personal care in an apartment-style setting that offers the simple pleasures - nutritious food, comfortable surroundings, and the support of a warm, caring and competent staff. A separate Special Care Center for residents with Alzheimer's or other memory related disorders is also on-site. The key to our success in the Special Care Center is our dedicated and compassionate staff, which receives special training and supervision. Our Special Care programming offers a variety of activities designed to achieve memory enrichment and positive social interactions. Caring for residents with dementia is a partnership between the community and the family, frequent family visits are encouraged and support groups and advisory councils are arranged. A Short Stay Program for seniors who need short-term care may also be available. It is the ideal alternative for recuperating after a hospital stay, while family caregivers are on vacation or if you just want to try out personal care. Please call for more information or to schedule a visit to find out how Brighton Gardens can enrich your life or the life of a loved one.

Family Testimonials

"I had a short window of time to find mom a senior care facility and thanks to your diligence, follow up and professionalism, you helped me immensely to find a great facility for my mom."

Bill P., Found Assisted Living in Fallston, MD

"Thank you for all of your help with mom. She is very happy and frankly I don't think she could have found a more suitable place. She is so happy with her room that she invites everyone to come up and see how comfortable she is."
