I like that there is around 81 senior living communities either in Rockville or very nearby Rockville. However, the majority of these healthcare facilities are assistant living facilities, with only 2-3 nursing homes. I believe there should be a couple more options for nursing homes in or near Rockville. I like that there is 6 facilities in the area that have memory care. Im happy that senior residents have opportuuniites to engage in activities within Rockville's community. For example, Rockville's Senior Center hosts events and is the recreational spot for the senior community. They many amazing things that seniors can participate in over a hunded different classes, programs, and trips. Rockville is a very nice area overall for seniors.
