Independent Living at Riderwood in Silver Spring, MD

Enjoy the Freedom You’ve Worked Hard for and Deserve.

At Riderwood, Silver Spring’s most popular independent living and continuing care retirement community, you’ll enjoy a new level of freedom, with benefits you won’t find at Active 55+ neighborhoods, senior apartment complexes, or other senior living communities.


On-Campus Amenities and Services

Riderwood is like the small towns of yesteryear. Everything you need is right here on campus. Our thriving Silver Spring community is packed with amenities and services.

A short stroll or shuttle ride takes you to the Village Square, Town Center, Lakeside Commons, and Montgomery Station clubhouses where you’ll find restaurants, an aquatics center, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, and dozens of other amenities. You can fill a prescription at the NeighborCare® pharmacy, borrow a book from the community library, take a photography class, and still have time to meet your friends for lunch at the Potomac Café.  

With over 200 clubs for actors, artists, card players, gardeners, hikers, and veterans you’re sure to find an activity to suit your interests. Join in as much—or as little—as you like. You can even start a club of your own with the help of our resident life coordinator.

I sold my house for a better and richer life. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made has been to come here.

Live Maintenance-Free

Ready to leave the work and worry of house upkeep to someone else? Riderwood has a  full-time maintenance staff that handles all standard repairs and replacements inside and outside your apartment home. That includes everything from salting sidewalks and raking leaves, to replacing smoke detector batteries and unclogging drains.


Additional Living Options, if Your Needs Change

If you’re like most older adults, staying independent is a top priority. Riderwood offers short or long term in-home care from home health aides and private duty nurses.  They supply a full spectrum of support, from simple things like completing daily tasks to monitoring and administering medications.

Riderwood offers continuing care health services for those who need assisted living, memory care, or nursing care.  We also offer inpatient and outpatient  rehabilitation should you ever require physical, speech, or occupational therapy after surgery or an illness.
