Chevy Chase House

Now operated by Meridian Senior Living, a national firm with headquarters in Bethesda, Chevy Chase House recently underwent a dramatic $12 million renovation to enhance, update and modernize its beautiful historic building in Chevy Chase, DC. As a former apartment building constructed in the 1900s, the assisted living community preserved the charming architectural details and spacious apartments, adding luxurious amenities and upgrading features for today’s discerning residents. Gracious studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom residences have full-size kitchens, and extra cabinets and closets. Furnished short-term suites are also available.
Assisted living never looked—or tasted—so good. Residents enjoy three delicious meals a day presented by the executive chef. Vibrant city living is just outside the community’s front door with restaurants, shops, a library and community center, and the historic Avalon Theatre.
An exciting programming calendar includes weekly trips to D.C. cultural sites, exclusive dining events, continuing education and exercise classes to encourage new friendships and embrace wellness. Cooking, health, sports, the arts and more fill a schedule that’s busy and expanding thanks to Life Enrichment Coordinator Kristen Sahd, who comes to Chevy Chase House with a master’s degree in movement therapy.
For those who need it, the nursing staff is always available, 24/7. There is on-site physical and occupational therapy as well, provided by Legacy Rehab Services. Partnering with the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area, construction is underway on a designated gym space for Rock Steady Boxing affiliate classes for everyone, especially those with a Parkinson’s diagnosis.
“After a gorgeous renovation, and exciting new plans, we are proud to introduce the new Chevy Chase House to the community,” says Executive Director Nicki Beekman.
