Five Star Premier Residences of Chevy Chase
8100 Connecticut Ave.
In the lovely D.C. suburb of Chevy Chase, Maryland, Five Star Premier Residences is a resort-style senior living community with both independent and assisted living apartments as well as rehabilitation services.
Luxurious and comfortable, services and amenities include restaurant-style fine dining, a cocktail lounge, a full schedule of social and recreational activities each month, a newly renovated health club with heated indoor swimming pool and fitness center, a billiards room and computer center, beauty salon and barber shop, library and art studio. There are scheduled trips, a 24-hour concierge service and doorman, housekeeping, secure underground parking and a washer and dryer in every apartment.
This community also has an active residents’ council. The participation is voluntary, of course, with council members elected by other residents. The council is made up of the chairs of the following committees: wellness, building and grounds, health, dining services, and programs. The council discusses issues that are of interest to the general resident population.
They serve as a sounding board, offering suggestions at the committee meetings, resolve concerns when they can and help plan community events. The council does not participate in management of the community, but members work closely with the lifestyle director in scheduling meetings, the election process and with communications.
Diana Lacz, a three-year resident who moved from New Jersey to be closer to her daughter and grandkids, has served on the council for two years. “I came here for the ambiance, the friendly people and the many activities available to us,” she says. “I looked at 12 other communities before I walked in the door here, and knew at once that Five Star was for me.”
