I visited this facility
Charlestown has everything you could possibly want. They handle everything: they handle your move; they send people in to pack for you.
I go there to eat every now and then. The food is excellent. They have 7 dining rooms. You get an apartment. They have many models to choose from.
It's independent living, but they have assisted living and a nursing facility there in the same community on the same grounds. If I should need it later on, I can go into assisted living or the nursing facility.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My parents moved to Charlestown about two months ago after we searched the Baltimore area extensively for the right place. This was a difficult move for my parents because they were selling their home in FL and traveling quite a distance. We chose this area because they are now closer to family members and they had spent much of their lives in the Baltimore area. Charlestown staff members helped in making this move as comfortable as possible. They were very responsive to our needs and especially concerned with helping my parents adjust to their new community. They have provided wonderful support to them (and continue to do so) which has helped make this stressful transition much less stressful and actually very pleasant now that they are getting settled. The other residents are very friendly and helpful as well. Having a medical staff and physical therapy right on site has been a big plus. They are both involved in activities which is a big change for my father who had become somewhat reclusive living in FL. I thank Charlestown staff and residents for recognizing his needs and working to get him involved. My mother is naturally outgoing, but was struggling with the adjustment, but is now very involved in the many activities offered.
