Forest Side is nestled in the pleasant, wooded setting of the Chevy Chase neighborhood in the District, not far from our main Forest Hills location. The mission of this 33-apartment assisted living location is to provide person-centered Alzheimer's and dementia care -- addressing all need of Wellness.
There are four neighborhoods within the building. The focus of our caregiver for each neighborhood is engagement with the residents in all aspects of their day--dining, activities, afternoon tea, neighborhood strolls--fostering a level of friendship and understanding. Each neighborhood is equipped with a full kitchen, dining room and comfortable living room with a fireplace. Enclosed porches, as well as a secure courtyard add to the home-like setting. Our day spa is available for pampering from head to toe.
As part of our Inclusive Senior Living concept, each of our resident's interests are respected and taken into consideration, regardless of their cognitive ability. Our highly-trained staff understands the challenges of memory loss, and has great sensitivity and compassion for the residents in their care and their families. The most important part of each day is to encourage and understand each resident, helping them make every opportunity for connection as successful as possible.
