About Sunrise on Connecticut Avenue

Sunrise on Connecticut Avenue is located in the heart of Washington D.C. and opened in late 2003.  Our community offers not only a convenient location within the District, but also a variety of services and amenities.  Nearby attractions include major shopping malls, golf courses, country clubs, and proximity to Interstate 495 and the Metro.  We pride ourselves in providing premier, state-of-the-art senior living options, including a seventh-floor rooftop garden, transportation in our luxury sedan, and a furnished guest room for visiting guests.

Step into a Sunrise Assisted Living community and you can’t help but feel at home. We stop at nothing to make your experience warm and inviting, from our homelike exterior architecture, to our comfortable community areas and choice of suites to our exceptional outdoor gardens and landscaping. Look around and you’ll notice fresh flowers throughout the residence, and you may even spot our dog or our cat. And of course, there are always the friendly smiling faces of our staff to ensure that each day spent here is a welcome one.

We Love Helping Families Find the Right Senior Care

"This has been such a hard decision for me. I never thought I would be putting my mom in a "home", I thought I would be able to care for her myself. But I realize that there is no way I could do this on my own. I truly appreciate the help in this difficult time. It was wonderful to have been given guidance in choosing a facility that will be able to work with their changing mental status. Again, thank you for your help and support. Knowing someone was there made a huge difference."

Linda B., Found Alzheimer’s Memory Care in Dublin, OH

"Your service is invaluable. It helped me tremendously. I went from a social worker at the hospice telling me on Monday they wanted my mom out by Wed and handing me a list of 60 - 80 names to evaluate on my own, to being able to tell you about my mom's needs and getting a small list of known good places in about 15 minutes. I appreciate you referring me to a list of 3 - 6 that you knew may be appropriate, with good ratings by someone like you and families. What a relief it was to have someone with your knowledge share information to help steer me in the right direction and help me make an informed decision.

Sheri C., Found Assisted Living in Fort Worth, TX
