CountryHouse in Cumberland
Near historic downtown Cumberland, alongside the Potomac River and the Great Allegheny Passage, a wonderful homelike residence, CountryHouse, provides exceptional care for those with all types of dementia. For more than 20 years, we’ve stood as Cumberland’s only community that’s completely dedicated to providing memory care. At CountryHouse, up to 22 residents make our community their home away from home.
Our sister community, The Kensington, offers assisted living and is located just a few short steps away. We’re pleased to serve local seniors with services at both communities.
The heart of CountryHouse really shines through in our people. Our team members understand the difference between caring and giving care, and they’re committed to infusing our philosophy of treating people like family into everything they do.
