Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Residential care homes in Washington may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. Washington care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

Older-adult care homes vary more than other options for senior living in Washington, so families can choose from a wide range of prices, amenities, and services. A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes. From there, we’ll help you find the right fit, whether you’re staying on a budget or searching for luxury retirement communities.

We are also serving Assisted Living facilities in surrounding neighborhoods like Colonial Village, North Gate and Deer Park.
You may also consider nearby communities such as Fairfax, Silver Spring and Bowie.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

Research services for seniors in Washington, DC

In Washington, D.C., seniors have access to local offices and organizations that may help them obtain financial assistance for senior care, including:

The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is well-known for its robust public transportation system, and within city limits, it’s possible to get by without driving. In some neighborhoods, you might be able to accomplish daily tasks without needing a vehicle at all. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority operates the Metro, which consists of a rail and subway system and a bus system, both of which offer transportation throughout the city and surrounding neighborhoods. The rail system runs from around 5 am to 11 pm, and the bus often continues later, with many routes in operation past midnight. Discounted fares are offered to seniors ages 65 and older. The D.C. area also has plenty of options for taxis and rideshare services.

The Washington, D.C. area is home to many world-class medical facilities. Some of the top facilities in the area include Inova Fairfax Hospital, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, and MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Considered one of the country’s top tourist destinations, Washington, D.C. has no shortage of exciting activities and historic sites. Popular locations such as the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial are always worth visiting. Another thing the city is known for is its world-famous museums — and there are plenty. Perhaps none are more celebrated than the Smithsonian museums, including the National Museum of American History and the National Air and Space Museum. The city is also home to several senior centers that offer a wide range of social, exercise, and educational programs. Popular area senior centers include the Hattie Holmes Senior Wellness Center and the Hayes Senior Wellness Center.

What are care homes?

Residential care homes are houses in residential neighborhoods that are equipped, adapted, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10. Like assisted living communities, staff at care homes typically help residents with activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing, and medication management. Although residential care homes vary significantly depending on the community, services usually include:

  • Help with personal care
  • Medication management
  • Mobility assistance
  • Nutritious meals
  • Social activities and outings
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
