Choose Where You Age Successfully

The term ‘aging successfully’ can have a variety of meanings. Does it mean that you’re exercising regularly to promote an active lifestyle through the years? Does it mean that you’re keeping your mind strong with crossword puzzles and classes? Perhaps it means eating healthy to promote both an active lifestyle and sharp mind?

Whatever your definition of aging successfully is, the key may be as simple as the old real estate mantra: Location, location, location. Capital City Nurses has found a way to encourage successful aging, no matter the definition, with their Cottage at Curry Manor.

Staffed with caregivers hand-picked by Capital City Nurses, The Cottage is a refined residential experience. We work to foster independence and mental and physical enrichment, but are prepared to help you with any medical problems that may arise. We also boast the highest staff to resident ratio in the area, meaning lots of individualized care and attention.

If you’re interested in staying active, The Cottage offers a myriad options. You can keep your mind and body healthy through gardening, yoga, stretching, walking and dance. We can help you design a workout regimen that will help you meet the CDC’s guidelines for healthy activity.

Living at The Cottage is also a great way to keep your mind fit. Studies have shown that socialization is the key to seniors experiencing a high quality of life as they age. Conversations help seniors keep their minds strong and stave off depression. At The Cottage, seniors stay connected at Sunday brunches with families, community socials, intergenerational social events and more.

Those looking to hone their minds can find a plethora of activities geared toward mental stimulation. We offer memoir writing, painting, book clubs, continuing education classes and drama productions. Those who want to explore the culture and history in the DC area can sign up for trips to the Kennedy Center, Strathmore and local galleries.

Aging successfully can mean many things. No matter how you choose to define it, pick a location that will help you live your best life, no matter the years.
