Resident Testimonial: Patricia Wertman

It’s the people here that make Grand Oaks not just a community for seniors, but a place that I can truly call home. I love the staff, and I think they’re all terrific and I make sure to let them know that.

“I’ve been living at Grand Oaks Assisted Living Community for a little over three years, and I can’t imagine myself anywhere else.

It’s the people here that make Grand Oaks not just a community for seniors, but a place that I can truly call home. I love the staff, and I think they’re all terrific and I make sure to let them know that. I don’t always need to be closely monitored or cared for as my medical issues aren’t as severe as others, but I love the feeling that if I need a little extra help, the staff are there for me. From getting my medication to simple requests I might have, they’re always so attentive and helpful. It’s truly extraordinary. It’s the little things that really go a long way for me, and I make sure to tell everyone that the care I receive here is excellent.

Not only is the staff excellent, but my fellow community residents are fantastic people as well.

On any given morning, you can find me and my friends sitting down to a delicious breakfast, courtesy of our executive chef Andrew Conlin, and having a great time together laughing and carrying on. The light and casual atmosphere here makes it easy to make friends and have a conversation with anyone.

While reading is what I love to do the most, I appreciate all of the options we have available here. There’s never a shortage of fun activities to take part in. When I’m not reading, I really enjoy the weekly movie nights. The selection is fantastic, and at least once a month, we all go to the Avalon movie theater in downtown D.C. for a fun outing. Without a doubt, I would refer Grand Oaks to everyone in need of assisted care.

When I talk to friends or family about living here at Grand Oaks, it always goes back to the people and how exceptional they are. The staff is excellent at anticipating your needs, and there’s never any argument when you decide you want something else. The people here at Grand Oaks make my day better, and I couldn’t ask for much more than that.”
