Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for Knollwood

August 03, 2011

By A Clinical Social Worker

I visited this facility

Knollwood is for high-ranking retired regular and reserve military officials. It's a very nice, prestigious facility that includes independent and assisted living"”and nursing home and memory care in a separate unit. It located in northwest DC, in a very beautiful campus"”secluded, with many trees and plants that give the place a private feeling. The assisted living part of the facility is gorgeous"”with beautiful wood furniture and classy appointments, along with very nice lighting. There is a day room with a TV area that people seem to use a lot. The rooms are of different sizes"”ranging from single rooms to suites, but even the older ones are a larger size. On the outside of all the doors to the living units, there is a picture and bio posted of the resident and where and when he or she served, which helps people get to know one another. There is a nice dining hall, which is more like a restaurant. There are lots of food options available every day. The menu choices are more upscale than you have at most facilities"”including different cuts of steak and a variety of fish. Residents also have the option of getting meals delivered directly to their rooms. The activities offered are diverse"”much geared to military, such as air shows, but including musical performances and outings to the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. There are also lots of programs for the holidays"”such as a nice Easter program. On the assisted living side, residents can have private duty care, such as a one on one person there all the time, but residents must pay on their own for that. And in the nursing home part, even though it is small, with only about 30 beds, the care is coordinated, with one nurse available for each of the two sides, along with a charge nurse who follows up on orders and supervises the aides. There is plenty of staff and the quality of care is excellent.
