Customer Reviews

Serious concerns

My mother lives at 5 Star now and although she very much likes her apartment and it is close to me, the dining experience is poor. Quality of food is inconsistent. The service is slow and often poor. Often the residents need to wait 30-60 minutes for a table at dinner time. The management is not responsive to complaints and the facility is not staffed appropriately.

Of equal concern is security is not a priority. The garage door has been broken and permanently open for weeks allowing anyone to come in.

Five Star Reviews

Local Representative

We are pleased that your mother is settling in nicely and enjoys her surrounding. We want everything to be to her satisfaction, including her dining experience, so thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do track seating times and strive to seat people in a timely fashion so they can enjoy their dining experience, including their socialization with friends. We recently have upgraded our ordering system with the latest in technology to provide even better timeliness in our services so we are hopefully that this will help greatly. We have already seen an immediate impact as recent as this past weekend. I invite you to reach out to the Executive Director for a personal tour of the dining room and new systems so we can work with you on this and get any additional issues resolved. The garage door is scheduled to be fixed very soon and we have beefed up security in the meantime while we wait on the part. Our 24 hr security staff would be glad to accompany your mother to and from anytime if she’d ever like. We apologize for not communicating this to our residents as we should have – again, thank you for bringing all this to our attention.

Nice staff and rooms, food is a big issue and management unresponsive

I love my apartment and the service staff. I am not happy with management's lack of responsiveness to my repeated requests for improvements to the food. Specifically I and many of the residents need to limit salt and sugar and avoid red meat. Our non- red meat choices are extremely limited and repititious. Sometimes they trigger other dietary issues. For example I don't eat red meat tin pet because I have high cholesterol; options like cheese lasagna are not good options. Moreover food is very salty and often poor quality fatty protein. Management insists salt isn't used but I have had 2 recent bouts of congestive heart failure even though I take a diuretic and several of us notice that when we are at 5 star our ankles blow up, yet when we visit family or go away the problem stops. Visitors to 5 star considering a move should know that the lunches provided on those visits are a far cry from the food served at dinner and would be well advised to pay a surprise dinner time visit to make sure the real food works for them. In addition there have been a lot of cutbacks in the food since I arrived that seem financially driven. Choices are fewer, repetition is greater and portions are smaller. They run out of specialty entrees and popular desserts early often leaving later diners with cheap substitutes and frozen store bought pound cake. Fresh berries are no longer a regular option, other fruit underripe and inedible. Even when fresh fruit is abundant and in season it rarely makes its way to our table. For example Watermelon was served once or twice the entire summer. I understand they are cooking for a large group and do not expect high end restaurant quality food but tasty healthy eating consistent with doctors' orders seems to me a fundamental right if your population is elderly.
In addition fresh eggs are served twice a month. Th rest of the time breakfast is precooked on mass and cold and while I don't eat eggs my visiting grandchildren and children deemed them inedible and speculated that they are powdered. For what we pay that's pretty unacceptable.

Finally there is no respect for resident's dietary requirements. I've been here several years and have lost 15 pounds I didn't need to lose because I won't eat food that isn't prepared well or compliant with my doctor's guidelines. Others who are supposed to eat lean meals with lots of fresh vegetables have gained dangerous amounts of weight.

My apartment is perfect

Five Star Premier Residences of Chevy Chase is going well overall. The lower level employee are super. My apartment is perfect, the maintenance is perfect. Everything is just fine but fore the money we are paying there are some issues. The chefs assistant and manager are just so kind but we all know that they cant cook for those that need health food. They have to cook for the masses. I understand that but food is so important to me. The good is so good but the bad is very bad so it's so hard to rate. The housekeeper couldn't be lovelier. The service people are absolutely lovely. The residents are just so lovely too.

Nice place overall, a few issues to work on

Overall they do a good job at Five Star Residences of Chevy Chase. It is a nice looking, clean facility, and for the most part the staff have been friendly and helpful. My loved one has had a few specific complaints. He says that both the dining service and the food itself could stand a little improvement, and has also mentioned that the elevators are prone to breaking down.

Very friendly staff and residents

I'm very happy with how things have gone at Five Star of Chevy Chase, they're doing a great job. I really appreciate that they went out of their way to help her get settled into the community. They learned about her, and then took her around and introduced her to residents who had similar interests and experiences, and she's been getting along great with everyone. The facility itself is very nice looking, and the staff are all friendly and helpful. They do a great job looking out for their residents, and the meal service is excellent. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking in the area!

My loved one seems to be doing well at Five Star of Chevy Chase. It's a nice looking, clean community, and the staff has all been just wonderful.

Very friendly staff!

Overall they've done a great job at Five Star of Chevy Chase! It's a nice looking community, and the staff have all been very friendly! I think many of the staff have been there a long time, and if they're happy enough to stay on so long you know they must love working with the residents.

This facility is on my short list.

This is a beautiful place. I ate lunch there on Sunday after touring on Friday, service was great, their menu was marked with vegan options and 'contains milk', they have a lot of variety each day. They have a small but swimmable pool, a fitness center FULL of machines (but no people the two times I saw it). It is larger than Kensington Park (about 300 in Independent Living, I was told, while KP has 60-65), so opportunity to find friends and interesting people or activities seems good. The community fee is $4000. and they claim they never take less than that (they told me earnestly that it is what funds the building rehab that is constantly ongoing). They have four styles of one-bedroom apt, I saw two that are similar except for bathtub/shower arrangement. The one with the shower (which I think I'd prefer) has had kitchen counter and cupboard upgrades. Both are renting for 3499 / month for first year (including brkfst and dinner daily). Each of these has a balcony facing east, so gets the morning sun and afternoon shade. They are both on the 4th floor and look out onto Connecticut Ave, but are quiet when the sliding door is closed. The view (or lack thereof) is one factor in pricing...on the other side of the building there is a golf course, so those apts are pricier. And the higher the floor, the higher the price. Each apt has a small Dish-washer (BONUS!) and washer/dryer set in the apt. Also a bonus. Location is great: very close to Connect. and East-West Hwy, so would likely be able to drive to any of my doctors within 15 mins. Parking at residence is free. If I am unable or don't feel like driving they have a van that goes around a certain route that includes one or two of my docs. They also have a 'club car with driver' for $22/hour, they charge in 15-min increments. They also have a single floor of 'assisted living' apartments. They are the same as those on the other floors but cost $6200-$6500 with additional care.

Found it a little too large and impersonal. Had a very nice tour guide but did not like the property very much. Great dining room.

A step above

My mother and I were impressed the moment we walked in. Gracious as a five-star hotel with a lovely reception foyer and concierge, classicly appointed with numerous amenities including a large central seating area for visiting with guests. Amenities include an indoor swimming pool with aquatics classes,a fully-equipped fitness room, a large,stately library, community room used for nightly movies, speakers,religious services and concerts, an art room and card room. Dining room has a dress code in the evening (jackets for men), table cloths and fresh flowers.

Supportive Staff

I think the staff is very supportive and friendly. The food is good, it's very good. They have lectures and field trips and exercise activities. The only criticism I have is, sometimes, the service in the dining room is very slow.

Great location! In the style of a grand old hotel so had some charming features only let down by the feeling that it was not being kept up as well as it could. The space was good but too many people milling about with either no badges (Agency staff) or bored (also staff). Residents looked liked they were independent and vibrant; even the ones that had slow ambulation and were generally smiling. Nicely updated rec room and pool..a fun place for grandkids to visit. The flats were a good size with lovely decor but the corridors were a bit dated..and stuffy. Worth looking into again. The activities include visits to The Kennedy Centre and Strathmore..whats not to like!!
