    What to Consider About Memory Care in Washington

    The capital city of the United States, Washington, D.C., has a population of over 690,000 people, roughly 12 percent of whom are 65 and over. It's estimated that 15 percent of the senior community is currently living with Alzheimer's disease. The D.C. Office on Aging offers a variety of resources and programs for those with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers. 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. 
    • Washington, D.C., is partly cloudy throughout the year and has warm, muggy summers and very cold winters. The year-round temperature ranges between 29 degrees and 88 degrees, which may be a consideration for seniors who prefer mild temperatures. 
    • D.C. has a higher crime rate than a majority of U.S. cities with similar population sizes. While a majority of the crime that takes place in the District is property-related, the community also ranks among the highest in the nation for violent crime. Residents have a one in 83 chance of being the victim of a violent crime and a one in 21 chance of being the victim of a property crime. To keep residents safe and prevent wandering, memory care communities have secured entrances and enclosed outdoor common areas.
