About the community

primary focus is to provide care for people with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory impairment.

To visualize Arden Courts Kensington, picture four single level houses all connected by indoor and outdoor walkways and courtyards. The houses offer a homey atmosphere that immediately make the residents feel comfortable and secure.

Arden Courts offers all the services normally associated with a general assisted living community. However, the services have been modified to take into account the unique needs of the Alzheimer’s resident. Special attention has been given to physical building layout, safety and décor. Modified activity and food service programs focus on preferences, abilities and most importantly, maintaining independence for as long as possible.

Offers competent and comprehensive care

When we were choosing a place during the pandemic, they made efforts to do virtual tours. When we were moving in they arranged for us to use their furniture. She have severe cognitive declines and they gave us ideas like to use a memory box to help her transition easier. They also suggested for her to see a geriatrics psychiatrist while she was making the transition, and she was able to change up her medication. She would call us all the time to give us updated on our loved one. Now we are able to go in and see her.

Memory Care at its finest

Arden Court Memory Care was a precious gift at a difficult time in our lives. My stepmother, for whom I have been caretaker for the better part of 20 years, was in Arden Court at Kensington for the last 18 months of her life. She had a very rare, complicated, form of Alzheimers that led to her not only losing her memory but her eyesight and other physical faculties as well. She was a very tough case. Under the superb leadership of Executive Director, [name removed], the staff at Arden Court Memory Care was flawless with her every single day. They were, without fail, kind, gentle, attentive, positive, and encouraging of every aspect of her life even as it became more and more diminished. The facility is spotless and welcoming. The food is nutritious, there are plenty of activities in which the residents participate. When my stepmother could no longer communicate meaningful or engage, I would come for a visit and her nails had been beautifully painted, her hair combed, her room refreshed, and music was playing gently in the background. It all helped me and her feel at peace with what was an extremely difficult circumstance. To say that we are grateful to Arden Court for their care would is an understatement. As difficult a journey as this was for my stepmother and for our family, I felt that she - and we - were loved, valued and cared for in all ways humanly possible.

Best Memory Care in DC Area

Are you about to move your dementia relative to assisted living, but you don't know how you're going to do it? Arden Courts of Kensington is the answer. My mother has lived at ACK for almost three years now, and she is thriving, even with dementia. The staff knew just how to transition her the day I brought her in, and they've grown into being just like family. I'm convinced the best course is ACK, because it is dedicated to memory care. ACK caretakers are indeed caring and are aware of the needs and preferences of each individual resident. They are all quick with a smile and great sense of humor that puts everyone at ease. The managers and director are always around and know what's going on. The physical spaces are tailored perfectly for dementia sufferers, with everything on one floor (please avoid elevators for dementia sufferers!), and freedom to roam inside and outside in a secure but free-feeling grounds and facility. The activities program is superb, with art & music therapy, entertainment, and field trips for those who are able to participate. The monthly bill is less than other top rated homes; and you get a single bill that includes all the amenities, supplies, and on-site medical care. This all-in-one billing helps you budget, with no surprises about costs. Find comfort at ACK for you and your relative with dementia.
