Morningside House of Laurel
5.0

The community is good, when I toured I was very happy with what I saw. The staff is friendly and introduced themselves to you as well as what they did in the facility and that made me feel at home. The security is good as you have to be buzzed in to get access to the memory care unit.

The Charleston Senior Community in Waldorf, MD

Everyone down there has been extremely helpful. Everyone is pleasant. The food is outstanding. They have a lot of activities. But the care is the most important thing. And everyone really takes care of my loved one, a heck of a lot better than I was able to do. They're doing a good job with the Covid situation, checking people in and being on top of everything. I would highly recommend them.

Forest Hills of DC in Washington, DC

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.

In Washington, D.C., seniors have access to local offices and organizations that may help them obtain financial assistance for senior care, including:

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.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks. Staff can assist residents with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, and medication management. Assisted living is also a good option for seniors seeking more socialization. Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
