    What to Consider About Assisted Living in District Of Columbia

    Washington, D.C., our nation's capital, is a place where seniors are not likely to get bored. Seniors are bound to find something of interest in this bustling town be it monuments and memorials, diverse and eclectic neighborhoods, free museums or a vibrant arts district. Seniors make up 12 percent of the population in Washington D.C. where there are 12 assisted living communities, with at least 6 more close by in Virginia and Maryland. The Department of Health, Health Regulation and Licensing Administration licenses two types of assisted living facilities in Washington, D.C., termed "assisted living residences" and "community residence facilities." 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in District Of Columbia

    • The weather in D.C. provides a reasonably comfortable experience. Washington ranks 58 out of 100 on the Sperling’s Comfort Index, with the U.S. average coming in at 54 out of 100. The city receives 203 sunny days yearly, just below the nationwide average of 205 days. Factors to consider in D.C. include the number of days with high humidity and high temperatures.
    • A huge reason to live in D.C. is the city’s arts and culture scene. Many museums are free, and there are diverse festivals, shopping opportunities and cultural events. The Smithsonian museums alone include the National Air and Space Museum, the National Postal Museum and the National Museum of African Art, among many others.
    • D.C. is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership is committed to maximizing what the city has to offer for residents as they age.
    • The air quality in D.C. could be risky for some senior citizens. While the air gets a “B” grade for 24-hour particle pollution, it gets an “F,” meaning unhealthy, for ozone. However, almost 40 percent of U.S. residents live in areas where ozone pollution is unhealthy.
    • The cost of living here is noticeably higher than the national average, to the tune of 39 percent. Much of that is attributable to housing, as it costs 147 percent more in D.C. than the national average. Assisted living does tend to be pricier here than in many other places.
    • Washington has a robust public transportation system with buses and subways. People 65 and older can get the Senior SmarTrip® Card for discounted rides.
