Our professional planners work with members of the community to design a campus that will bring much-needed services while minimizing the effect on the area’s traffic, aesthetics, environment, character, and culture.
Erickson Living campuses are uniquely self-sufficient, providing their own security, transportation services, and health and wellness centers. They also manage their own road repair, snow removal, and other services often funded by the local government.
In the Washington, D.C. area, our communities have been supported and recognized by Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and Montgomery County officials not only for providing exceptional senior care and services, but also for engaging in community activism and philanthropic activity.
Residents and staff at our communities support a variety of nonprofit and charitable organizations through donation campaigns and volunteer service. Those efforts benefit area emergency responders, families in need, students, and a variety of local volunteer organizations.
We take great pride in learning from our residents. After a campus opens, all Erickson Living communities have a resident member on the Board of Directors and an elected Resident Council that works side-by-side with community leadership to ensure we’re not only meeting and exceeding the expectations of our residents and staff, but also that of our local community.
Among Erickson Living’s 20 communities nationwide are three thriving Washington, D.C. area communities: Ashby Ponds in Ashburn (Loudoun County), Greenspring in Springfield (Fairfax County), and Riderwood in Silver Spring (Montgomery County).
The three local communities
represent over 50 years of combined experience providing care and services to area seniors. Greenspring opened in 1998, Riderwood in 2000, and Ashby Ponds in 2008.
More than $600,000
was raised in 2018 for area students in Virginia and Maryland. Every year, residents and staff at Erickson Living communities raise funds for higher education scholarships for student employees who meet a variety of criteria.
Over 1,700 residents
participate in volunteer work each month at the three local communities.
