Resident Testimonial: Martha Sullivan Young

Barbara Whalen

I’ve been so impressed with the staff since I moved in. They respect us, and they respect their work, which shows how much they truly care about Grand Oaks. There’s a sense of comfort and safety with that, and it makes a difference to me.

“I woke up one morning and the sun was shining through the large windows in my apartment. The first thing that came to mind was that I feel wonderful here—in my home.

I knew about Grand Oaks for a while, even before my apartment search. I worked at the Washington Hospital Center for many years and saw the construction of this beautiful community. I remember thinking that this place had a smart, imaginative architect who tastefully created a place that meets the needs of so many different kinds of people.

When I first moved into my apartment, I quickly noticed the nice and spacious layout. I loved all of the natural light. The move-in process was seamless and easy thanks to the wonderful staff here. Filling my apartment with my home furnishings and memories as well as choosing the color of my walls made my apartment feel like home.

The coziness of my apartment went a long way with making it feel like home here, but it’s the staff that makes Grand Oaks so inviting.

I’ve only been living here for a short time, but I can say with complete confidence that I’m grateful to be here and this is the type of community that people want. It’s so close to the city, which offers endless options for entertainment, but it’s far enough away from downtown D.C. to be peaceful and serene. I would definitely recommend Grand Oaks to anyone, regardless of level of care needed. It’s a place that caters to all.”
