We offer 24-hour nursing care and therapy, as well as personalized assistance and support with daily living.
You may know of Fort Washington Estates as an independent living retirement community, but it isn’t only our residents who benefit from superior health services — anyone in need of assisted living can move into our Fort Washington facility.
We offer traditional assisted living as well as specialized memory care services, with top quality ratings from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

What is Assisted Living Care?
Assisted living helps patients with activities of daily living in a homelike, secure setting. Seniors who benefit the most from assisted living often still have some independence, but require help with tasks such as dressing, bathing, and scheduling prescription medication.
What is Skilled Nursing Care?
Skilled nursing care is a temporary service that provides significant medical care. The ultimate goal of skilled nursing is to help patients following surgery or a hospital stay, so they can return to assisted living, or even independent living.
