Riderwood’s Key Financial Indicators

Riderwood’s track record of financial strength and stability make us the best choice among Silver Spring senior living communities.

  • Consistent Growth
    Since opening our doors in 2000, Riderwood has seen steady and consistent growth. Our community master development plan is complete. We are the nation’s largest CCRC with four residential neighborhoods, four clubhouses, and a dedicated continuing care health services neighborhood.

  • Not-for-Profit Community
    Riderwood is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation and an affiliate of National Senior Campuses, Inc. (NSC). The focus of the boards of NSC and its affiliated communities is on pursuing their not-for-profit missions and on the people who call the NSC communities home..

  • Fee-for-Service Advantage
    As a fee-for-service community, we don’t make you pay upfront for health care services that you may never need. Unlike a Life Care model, we only charge for a higher level of care when and if it’s needed—an approach that could save you and your family thousands of dollars every year that you remain independent.

  • Home for Life Commitment
    Riderwood maintains a Benevolent Care Fund designed specifically to assist eligible residents who outlive their resources. No one has ever been asked to leave the community because of a genuine inability to pay.

  • A Solid Foundation
    Riderwood is one of 19 communities managed by Erickson Living, one of the nation’s largest developers and operators of continuing care retirement communities.

*Carefully read the Residence and Care Agreement for the conditions that must be satisfied before the Provider is required to pay the Entrance Fee Refund.

**Ancillary services are available for an additional fee.
