Sunrise of Silver Spring is an excellent, beautiful, spacious place but very expensive. Mom loved it and liked the decor. The rooms were very nice and very spacious. The staff was very well versed and excellent. The chef made some scones, and they were very good, but we didn't have lunch with them.

Sunrise was very clean and very neat. I liked the rooms and the fact that they let you use the furniture in the room. The staff was pleasant. The location was very good, it was off the road in a quiet area with nice landscaping.

Information About Assisted Living Facility in Silver Spring

Silver Spring, MD ArchitectureIn 1840 Francis Preston Blair, editor of the Washington Globe, discovered a natural spring flowing with mica chips on a walk with his daughter. Two years later, he built a mansion and aptly named it Silver Spring Mansion on a 250 acre estate which included the spring. Located at the northern apex of Washington, DC, President Lincoln was a frequent guest of the Blair's during the Civil War. Given the proximity to Washington, DC, seniors who choose assisted living in Silver Spring have a unique ability to enjoy all of both Silver Spring and our nation's capital have to offer from extensive parks & trails to countless museums and the unique open air mall Downtown Silver Spring.

Silver Spring Attractions

Though Silver Spring is mere blocks from the Smithsonian, it has some unique attractions. The historic Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum was once one of the busiest B&O terminals. President Truman would often drive up from the White House to Silver Spring to avoid the far more crowded Union Station in Washington to pick up Bess coming back from a trip home to Missouri. The AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center provides countless hours of enjoyment for residents of assisted living in Silver Spring showing both classics and unique films from all eras of production. The theatre was built in 1938 by renowned architect John Eberson. It was saved by the citizens of Silver Spring, restored with an addition that houses the American Film Institute's largest collection of historical film items outside of its main campus in Hollywood. With several parks, trails, a unique golf course and countless museums in Washington, less than two miles away, Silver Spring is an ideal location for residents of assisted living.
