Forest Hills of DC in Washington, DC
4.6

My sister has lived at Forest Hills in the Health Care Center for a while. Before the pandemic, they had wonderful activities as well as great nursing care. In the pandemic they have done an incredible job to keep everyone safe, to figure out ways to have safe activities and/or virtual or safe visitation zones (following CDC guidelines). The staff is working under challenging circumstances and they continue to be kind, patient and deliver high quality care. We are so very grateful my sister can live in such a great facility.

Residences at Vantage Point CCRC in Columbia, MD

I enjoy dining in our Fireside Dining Room, The Bistro and The Pub. The food is well prepared, presented in an attractive fashion, and is exceptional. The atmospheres of the venues are unique. I particularly enjoy the specials which are offered each night. The variety of the Seafood/Fish and Chef’s Special is remarkable. Overall, it is a pleasure to enjoy good food with good company.

Aarondale Community in Springfield, VA
5.0

The staff at Aarondale community is great, we are very happy with the care services our loved one as been receiving. They have done an amazing job with containing COVID. Its not a very large community, and for a good part of the spring and into the summer the residents had to stay in their rooms, as well as eat in their rooms instead of in the formal dining area. During this time the staff members would come around to engaged with the residents since they had to cancel most of the activities. However the residents are now allowed out of their rooms and can social distance. What impressed us the most was the staff and how the facility has a very comfortable and homey feeling to it.

Transportation

The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is well-known for its robust public transportation system, and within city limits, it’s possible to get by without driving. In some neighborhoods, you might be able to accomplish daily tasks without needing a vehicle at all. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority operates the Metro, which consists of a rail and subway system and a bus system, both of which offer transportation throughout the city and surrounding neighborhoods. The rail system runs from around 5 am to 11 pm, and the bus often continues later, with many routes in operation past midnight. Discounted fares are offered to seniors ages 65 and older. The D.C. area also has plenty of options for taxis and rideshare services.

Health care

The Washington, D.C. area is home to many world-class medical facilities. Some of the top facilities in the area include Inova Fairfax Hospital, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, and MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Senior activities

Considered one of the country’s top tourist destinations, Washington, D.C. has no shortage of exciting activities and historic sites. Popular locations such as the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial are always worth visiting. Another thing the city is known for is its world-famous museums — and there are plenty. Perhaps none are more celebrated than the Smithsonian museums, including the National Museum of American History and the National Air and Space Museum. The city is also home to several senior centers that offer a wide range of social, exercise, and educational programs. Popular area senior centers include the Hattie Holmes Senior Wellness Center and the Hayes Senior Wellness Center.
