Mr. Benjamin Nickson
"Five and half years ago, I knew my wife Marion and I should make a change in our lives, but it was hard for us to make the leap. I can now truthfully say that this decision is one of the best living decisions I have ever made. Following my wife’s two hip replacement surgeries, I knew we couldn’t exist in a condo. We needed a better support system. The key for us was the connection to Sibley Memorial Hospital and the fact that our daughter lives nearby in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
"Although Marion is no longer with me, I have found a great new life at Grand Oaks; many new friends, great compassionate care by the staff, wonderful healthful food, excellent management, beautiful surroundings and numerous cultural and enrichment activities. We have many musical programs and there is even a place where I can play my cornet! I consider it a privilege to be living at Grand Oaks."
