Aging is inevitable, and so are associated health issues that come with an active life and advancing years. When it comes time to join an assisted living community, close proximity to places and people you care about and extraordinarily high-quality health care bring comfort and peace of mind.
“Grand Oaks enables seniors who really value their independence to age in place,” says Beth Abate. “We are the only assisted living community in the area to offer an on-site clinic. Residing on the campus of Sibley Memorial Hospital gives us direct access to the Johns Hopkins Medicine care team, along with all of what downtown Washington, D.C. has to offer.”
Grand Oaks’ early intervention approach allows Beth to help the residents avoid deterioration of health as well as unnecessary emergency department visits. “Coordination of care means communication between nurses, residents, family members, primary care providers and consultants.”
Grand Oaks is connected to Sibley Memorial Hospital by a convenient below-ground walkway. Residents live in spacious, light-filled apartments that provide a tranquil and safe environment with dentists, doctors and all hospital resources on the same campus.
In addition to a full menu of classes, fitness activities and outings, the community features physical, occupational and speech therapy services, overseen by a medical director and professionals like Beth. The devoted team takes a comprehensive approach to understanding aging and providing quality care.
“We believe the most nurturing environment feels like home yet offers world-class care,” she says. “Our approach addresses the whole person, mind and body, with access to experts who focus on wellness, prevention, assessment and treatment. Our happy, healthy residents are the proven results of this unique approach to assisted living.”
