IT'S NO SECRET that as soon as you move to Primrose you'll find yourself pretty busy. There's catching up to do with friends already here, and there's the Wii Bowling league, and there's the Book Club that conveniently meets in the Pub at 4:30. And the list goes on.
It's kind of like retiring to the fast lane until you find your pace and grow into your new lifestyle at Primrose. Being social is a big part of our community, and living in our gorgeous apartment homes puts you near the center of the action. Where else can you hop from your apartment to the coffee klatsch meeting at the Bistro in the middle of winter in your slippers?
The pace at which you adapt to your new lifestyle at Primrose is greatly determined by the amount of effort you put into throttling your new activities. There's no official prescribed method or rate, so it's entirely up to you how busy you want to be.
Plenty of resources will tell you to avoid any mental heavy lifting, like the stuff you'd typically find in the book club and library association. (You can save GONE WITH THE WIND for your second month at Primrose.) Right off the bat, probably a lot of experts would recommend improving your Wii bowling to keep your life out of the gutter, so to speak. Generous doses of card-playing and a stretch at billiards can improve your mental state along with giving you the requisite navigational skills to locate the best card party at 3 a.m.
PROVIDING AN ENRICHING RETIREMENT EXPERIENCE means understanding what makes you tick, what concerns you have, and how you want to live your retirement years. That's where our excellent staff becomes involved.
We're certain you'll appreciate our on-site 24/7 nursing staff. They provide regular wellness checks and assist with the activities of daily living that you request.
Our housekeeping team brushes through at prescribed intervals, keeping your apartment home tidy. Laundry services are provided and there are hookups available, too.
Even though Primrose provides the perfect maintenance-free lifestyle — we take care of everything from removing snow to replacing lightbulbs — you'll want to meet our maintenance guys because they're just so handy to have around.
Our kitchen staff provide 3 mouth-watering, home-made meals every day, but you already knew that. (Some of our more savvy residents first learned about this when they scheduled their first tour during meal time. Hint, hint.) We invite you to test their culinary skills during your tour.
Special hats off to our Life Enrichment Coordinators who plan exciting and entertaining activities, sometimes stretching as far as Disney World. Whether it's an exercise session in our Wellness Center or an escapade into the greater Washington area at large, you'll find our Coordinators to be a valuable resource toward enjoying your retirement at Primrose.
Convenience, comfort, safety and security — it's why our residents thrive at Primrose. Stop by for a tour today!

Primrose is an ideal senior residence and one our family highly recommends. There is such a warm community spirit and my dad enjoys living at Primrose very much. From the first week, he has been welcomed easily into the rhythm and made the transition nicely to his new home. There is always something going on at Primrose, and my dad never lacks for companionship or things to do. He loves visiting with other residents, participating in weekly church services and daily events or borrowing books from the Primrose library. The nightly movies in the theatre are the highlight of his day.
The staff at Primrose is very attentive and does a great job keeping our family informed of my dad's health and well-being. They also take the time to visit with him daily, offer a joke and really listen to his needs. There is a wonderful variety of dining choices, with the food plentiful and healthy. The whole facility is spotless, well taken care of and reminds me of a resort! It's a lovely, safe and comfortable place to live.

Thanks for all you do for my Mom and all the other residents at Primrose. Each of you go way above and beyond. The hugs, the morning coffee you deliver, the arduous routine of helping her pick her clothes for the day, the respect that you show for her decisions and wishes, the way you make her feel loved and appreciated...I could go on and on. Suffice it to say that each special effort you make is noticed and appreciated. I speak for all of our family when I say thank you to each one of you who serve at Primrose.
— John H.
I've been very happy since the day I moved in. We have good food, great friends, wonderful activities and there is always someone to help you. Having my cat has been an extra blessing.

They have gone out of their way to make me feel comfortable. It takes a special person to do that and that is what you have here at Primrose.

When I first began living at Primrose, I thought that I would stay for six months just over the winter, but as I became more acquainted with the community, I made the decision to stay. Primrose has made everything so handy and I like someone else doing the cooking, cleaning and laundry. I wake up and the newspaper has been delivered to my door and my mailbox is on the premises for easy use. I have made friends, enjoy the activities and the three meals a day. The staff is top-notch and they are just a call away if I need them. Primrose is a great place to live.
