Welcome to the Collington Residents Association website.
Our nonprofit Continuing Care Retirement Community (AARP definition here) is part of the Kendal Network of retirement communities. We are located in Maryland outside of Washington, D.C. Collington provides independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing services to 500 residents. Our campus is a Certified Wildlife Habitat.
This website is maintained by a group of volunteers to encourage sharing, a core value of our continuing care retirement community.

The Collington Foundation, Inc. is the philanthropic arm of Collington Episcopal Life Care Community. The Foundation is the tax-exempt entity entrusted with the management and disposition of funds donated by residents and other generous contributors. Its purpose is to serve the Collington community—residents and employees— where specific needs exist. The Foundation occasionally provides capital funds for projects that enjoy community support. The basis of this activity is grounded in a tradition of generous support initiated by our founding residents.
