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.

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.

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

Care Homes in Washington, DC

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Washington, DC

The cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.

A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help find the right residential care home in Washington, D.C. for you or your loved one.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Considered one of the country’s top tourist destinations, Washington, DC has no shortage of interesting activities to partake in.

  • The National Museum of American History
  • The National Museum of the American Indian
  • The National Museum of African American History and Culture
  • The National Air and Space Museum
  • The Smithsonian American Art Museum

One could feasibly spend days or even weeks enjoying the sights of the city barely spending a dime!
