Maplewood Park Place is a warmly social, active retirement community that’s ideally located in the DC area. Better yet, our unique community offers both the benefits of home ownership and the peace of mind of award-winning healthcare should you ever need it.

Here are some of the queries we hear most often. We hope what you learn will entice you to come meet our owner residents and see for yourself why our beautiful Bethesda co-op community is one of a kind. 

FAQ #1: What are the advantages of Maplewood’s home ownership co-op model?

There are many senior living communities in metro DC, but only Maplewood Park Place lets you own your own home. Here, you can renovate and customize just like you always have. And you’ll join a fun, interesting group of owner residents who participate in all the governance activities of our friendly, well-run community.

People love the idea of home ownership – especially without the hassles of housekeeping, home maintenance and yard work. But there are also other great advantages that our co-op ownership model can provide. Here are some additional benefits to consider:

  • You get all the tax advantages of home ownership, including deductions for interest and real estate taxes.
  • You may receive a significant medical deduction as a member of the co-op.
  • You can reap the benefits of appreciation when you relocate and sell your home.
  • You can include your home as an asset of your estate or trust for your heirs.

Owner residents say they’ve found Maplewood to be a wise financial choice. You can learn more about resident ownership and governance here.

FAQ #2: What is a Lifecare Plan, and how does that relate to the continuum of care?

As a premier Lifecare community, Maplewood Park Place gives you peace of mind you can count on. You can enjoy every day to the fullest knowing you have an affordable, predictable plan in place for excellent healthcare should your needs ever change.
