Five Star Premier Residences of Chevy Chase
John Higgins, Executive Director
8100 Connecticut Ave.
For 28 years, Five Star Premier Residences of Chevy Chase has been an elegant home to individuals, 55 and over, who appreciate having a high-quality lifestyle without the large equity investment that many similar independent and assisted living communities require upon entry. Five Star residents simply commit to a monthly rent.
The high-rise building’s balconies overlook lovely views of the adjacent Columbia Country Club and its golf course, with Bethesda in the background. Many choose Five Star for, in part, its very convenient location close to all the shopping, cultural events and dining opportunities that abound in Washington and its northwest suburbs.
“We are proud of our concierge services that include 24/7 desk staff and a doorman, our beautiful common areas, and fine finishes and furnishings. Anything our residents want or need, they can have on site, including different kinds of therapies. Above all, perhaps, we boast about low staff turnover. We hire quality people who care. Almost half of the staff has been here more than a decade,” says Executive Director John Higgins, who has been at Five Star for more than 20 years. “And we are always updating and upgrading; newly renovated apartments are regularly available.”
Residents dine any time they wish, enjoying wide-ranging menus created by chef Brandon Williams, who has worked in many fine restaurants and considers it a privilege to have trained under renowned chef and humanitarian Jose Andres. Another great offering is the Lifestyle 360 Program that is an intentional approach to living a healthier, happier and enhanced life, with over 300 social and recreational opportunities on the calendar every month, including activities and therapies in the indoor pool.
