The Fountains At Washington House

They keep everything very clean, however it is an older building. The staff is very friendly; they really make everyone feel like family. The food has been great and we have no complaints. I thought they had a nice assortment of activities; they had exercise classes, off-community field trips to places like the Kennedy Center, outside entertainment, shopping, and some other things. The Fountains is a little pricey, but seems appropriate for the area.

Very good experience at the NSF

My father stayed in the skilled nursing facility area of Fountains, and recovered from his CHF with the help of the terrific nursing staff, PTs and attendants. We weren’t sure what to expect but were very satisfied with the experience (3 week stay).
