I visited this facility

This facility, which offers both independent living and assisted living, is located in a pretty stone building in the prime area of Chevy Chase. There are lots of coffee shops and diverse restaurants nearby for both residents and visitors. Because there is lots nearby to walk to, it is easy for residents to maintain their independence if they have it. The place appeals the most to those who want to stay in the area and who have friends and family nearby"”or those who enter as a couple. The residents seem to engage with one another easily and to be very social. It's an older, established residence community, appointed with somewhat dated furniture from the 70s and 80s. The residents have their own living quarters, which are quite spacious. A possible benefit is they have Care Share that allows residents to split the costs of care they need"”and that often allows residents to stay out of nursing facilities and to stay as independent as possible for as long as possible. There are also nurses on staff who are adequate, but don't seem to go the extra mile. There's also a dining area that offers basic food"”and it is possible for residents to have it delivered to their rooms if they wish. Care and housing at Chevy Chase House is very expensive, but you don't get much for the money. You pay for the ZIP code.
