Washington D.C. Assisted Living Records & Reports

When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. Public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in DC:

KEY FINDINGS

  • A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request must be submitted in order to find out the backgrounds of providers.
  • The District of Columbia does not have a searchable database of licensed assisted living communities.

HOW TO ACCESS RECORDS

  • Contact the D.C. Department of Health directly to find out about the backgrounds of providers
  • If you need to make a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to get records, consider browsing these state-by-state resources from the National Freedom of Information Coalition, which included sample state-specific FOIA letters.
