Three friends stop to chat while walking around Asbury Methodist Village's Wildlife Preserve.

When you move to an Asbury community, a new home is just the beginning of what you gain. Study after study shows that greater social engagement and intellectual stimulation aids brain health and emotional wellness.

Asbury Methodist Village is proud to offer an incredible breadth of opportunities for engagement right here on campus, in addition to all the cultural events and attractions of nearby Washington, D.C. The resident-run Keese School of Continuing Education offers between 20 to 40 lectures and classes each semester annually and is nearing its 30th year. Our unique partnership with The Strathmore cultural arts center brings artists to the Rosborough Cultural Arts & Wellness Center and brings discounted tickets to all Strathmore events. The Osher School also brings several of its most popular courses to our campus each year.

In addition, you gain access to more than 140 resident-created programs, events and clubs, our Wellness Team and its new Brain Fitness course and a culture of volunteerism that will allow you to be as engaged and active as you’d like to be. Last year, 420 residents volunteered 19,000 hours of time here and in the surrounding community, some as part of the national award-winning Gaithersburg Beloved Community Initiative outreach program.

When you join Asbury Methodist Village, you join a community of people who are passionate about living with purpose and who put those passions to work creating a retirement community that is anything but retiring.
