Not just a community. A family.
Warm and welcoming, Knollwood opens its arms to new residents and new experiences.
Our life plan community
Knollwood is a tight-knit community of people who have a shared history of serving our nation. The buildings and grounds are safe, secure, and beautiful. The location in Upper Chevy Chase is unbeatable—adjacent to Rock Creek Park and minutes to Washington DC’s best restaurants, theaters, museums, and the nation’s top health care.
Knollwood is firmly committed to pursuing and applying the most innovative service approaches available today—keeping you engaged whether you prefer a busier lifestyle or something a little more quiet. You’ll find cutting-edge technologies and programs not offered by other senior living communities. Should our independent living residents ever seek care in the future, Knollwood employs an award-winning nursing staff with skilled nursing and memory care and support services (which are dually certified by Medicaid and Medicare) all while maintaining the highest possible five-star federal rating.
Knollwood is a Green Seal Certified retirement community, demonstrating commitment to environmentalism and sustainability.
And, because of our donor-supported Financial Assistance Fund—which is sustained by concerned residents, corporations, and foundations—Knollwood residents who fall into financial hardship will always be able to remain at the community.
As Knollwood’s transportation coordinator since May of 2018, Barry Roache knows it’s the little things that matter—a friendly hello, a warm smile, and a helping hand. Barry loves the feedback and appreciation he gets back from the residents as he takes them to and from museum trips, restaurant outings, grocery runs, and more. He’s a favorite of the “lunch bunch” and an all-around great guy. Thanks, Barry.
