Vibrant Retirement Living in Beautiful Silver Spring, MD

Located on 120 private acres, Riderwood is Silver Spring’s most impressive address for active retirement living. Our lively campus, abundance of convenient services and amenities, and superior health and wellness network sets us apart from Active 55 communities, senior apartments, and other area retirement communities.

In addition to independent living, Riderwood has an on-site continuing care health services neighborhood where you can experience exceptional inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, assisted living, memory care, and nursing care.


Serving Seniors for Over 15 years

Riderwood opened in 2000 in response to the high demand for this lifestyle at our sister community, Greenspring in Springfield, VA.  This amazing Silver Spring campus quickly became a desired address for seniors from Montgomery, Prince George’s, and Howard counties.

Today, what started as a single residence building and clubhouse has grown into the largest continuing care retirement community in America. Riderwood currently boasts four  clubhouses, over 1,840 independent living apartment homes, and a continuing care health services neighborhood—all supported by a staff of almost 1,500 dedicated employees!

You don’t move in and stay in. You can still work and have activities that you do outside. It’s really independent living.
