Bob and Bobbi B. from Barclay House
We were to the point where it was time to start looking, and as soon as we visited Bethesda Barclay House, we knew this was for us. It was only about 10 minutes from some of the activities we love – Art Museum, Stages, the Rep – and we were able to stay in the neighborhood in which we were quite comfortable. It was like it was meant to be.
— Bob and Bobbi B.
Jerry S. from Bethesda Terrace
I feel protected and safe in my apartment, which I love. It’s very cozy, and someone else cleans it. The front desk knocks on my door every morning and evening to make sure I’m OK. My apartment is cleaned every week, and I just call them if I need something fixed. There is always someone to help you if you need anything. Thank you, Bethesda Terrace
— Jerry S.
Doris and LeRoy R. from Village North
One thing that we really liked was that the staff did not pressure us at all to make an immediate decision. They answered all of our questions, but they realized that this was a big decision for us. We appreciated that, and made our decision to move here in less than a week.
— Doris and Leroy R.
