Reviews of The Georgetown Retirement Residence
Average Rating: based on 2 Reviews
I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mother-in-law has been to The Georgetown for quite a while. It's been a great experience with them. It is also a retirement community surrounded with class and inviting atmosphere. They have an on-site parlor which they don't have to go out. It's very convenient to all the people residing in The Georgetown. They have a lot of different activities and mom has been really happy being in that community. The staff are giving quality care, not just the normal job, but it felt like they are really concern. It's a great place for a retirement home.
I visited this facility
This upscale facility is located in the heart of Georgetown, where a lot is going on, with shops and restaurants nearby.
Many activities are offered to engage the residents, including outings into the community to cultural events and other entertainment. A lot of the residents are former judges and attorneys who enjoy going to restaurant openings and fancier events.
But the common areas seem so comfortable and inviting that residents will often gather in the lobby area and talk, or simply sit around and read together. The place feels more like an apartment lobby than an assisted living facility or nursing home. There is a large den area that feels like a library—with bookshelves and a piano; many residents admit they use the space for their favorite activity: peoplewatching.
The food served is hot and fresh and varied—and residents really seem to enjoy it.
The staff is involved and respectful, and there’s a good caregiver to resident ratio. Many of the residents have been there a long time, and a lot of people get private care, behind closed doors. But there is also a nursing station, where medical care is facilitated.
Hospice is allowed here.
A possible limitation: There is no dedicated memory care offered.
The Georgetown is one of the most expensive facilities in the area; rates start at $3,500 per month.
