Q: What specialized fitness programs are offered to residents of the Chevy Chase House?

A: Fox Rehab offers on site physical, occupational and speech therapies covered by Medicare and most insurances. They have just introduced the innovative Stronger Living Program for all Chevy Chase House residents. An exercise physiologist provides a complimentary weekly individualized exercise program for each resident. This program is designed to maximize mobility and prevent functional decline. 

Chevy Chase House is the only community of its kind that offers this kind of personalized fitness amenity for free to its residents. We are proud of our new state of the art gym, where residents can work out and participate in a wide variety of exercise classes such as tai chi, Pilates and strength training.

Q: Are there unique programs for residents with Parkinson’s?

A: As a partner with Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area, Chevy Chase House offers a Boxing for Parkinson’s class both for our residents and members of the foundation who pre-register. This program has recently reopened as we all hope for a happy, healthy spring!  

Accredited Fox Rehab therapists also offer, on site, both LSVT-BIG and LSVT-LOUD for people with Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions. Designed for improved mobility, LSVT-BIG exercises result in faster walking, bigger steps and improved balance. LSVT-LOUD consists of specialized speech therapies for easier, more clear communication.

Chevy Chase House features charming architectural details and spacious, renovated apartments with luxurious amenities and features. Living in this vibrant neighborhood provides all the advantages of an apartment in the city with the availability of supportive assisted living services if and when they are needed.
