Additionally, the region is home to more than a dozen memory care facilities, with four in the city and another 11 nearby. 

    • The overall cost of living in Washington, D.C., is considerably higher than that of the rest of the nation. The cost of real estate, in particular, is high, with housing prices more than triple the national average, which may impact the cost of memory care. Healthcare expenses are about 17 percent lower than the national median, making it more affordable for seniors to manage chronic conditions.
    • Social Security benefits are not taxable in the District, but other types of retirement income are subject to income tax. The exact amount owed differs based on the amount of income received, relieving some of the financial burden for low-income seniors.
