Friends House is a Type C (fee-for-service) Life Plan Community, which means that multiple levels of care are available and you pay only for the services and care if you need it. Higher levels of care such as Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation are on campus in addition to Residential Living. Should you or a spouse ever need different levels of care, both of you can receive the services you need within the community.
Lodge and Cottage Homes
Our residences and other building are simple, durable, and constructed using sustainable building practices and materials reflecting the Quaker values that inspire everything we do at Friends House. The newly constructed Lodges and Duplex Cottages offer balconies and patios: a way to meet nature just a step outside your door. Wildflower – filled meadows, permeable pathways, and dark-sky exterior lighting also enhance the outdoor experience and environmental sustainability of the campus.
The Lodges each contain 10 or 13 apartment homes arranged around a common living space. Featuring one bedroom through two bedroom and den homes, Lodges are designed to foster both a sense of close community and relationships that last a lifetime. The Duplex Cottages are either one bedroom and den or two bedroom and den homes featuring private garages. All residences exceed Montgomery County’s requirement for energy conservation and include R45 room insulation along with high-efficiency lighting, appliances, heating and cooling, The Duplex Cottages and Lodge building design team incorporated best practices for sustainability in design and construction using LEED for Homes as guidance.
