Assisted Living Facilities in Washington DC

Assisted Living Facilities and Homes in Washington DC

Assisted living in the Washington DC area is an independent living option for seniors or the elderly which offers security and support services such as transportation, meals, medication management as well as assistance with personal care if needed or as required. States regulate assisted living facilities, not the federal government, so limits on services like medication assistance exist. These facilities, homes and centers are primarily designed for seniors who are no longer able to live on their own without assistance, but are healthy enough not to require the additional care or assistance of a nursing home.

Payments may be covered by long-term care insurance or private out-of-pocket pay but not health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid–in most cases.

Many states cover some assisted living services costs under their Medicaid programs; however, this coverage can fluctuate widely with regard to eligibility requirements and dollar amounts of coverage. Assisted living costs in and around the Washington DC area can and do vary widely by type of facility, community, size of apartment, and location amenities available at the residence. Some assisted living facilities provide apartment-style living with scaled down kitchens, while others simply provide rooms. Some communities offer the option of sharing a room, which helps cut down on costs. Most facilities have a group dining area and common areas for social and recreational activities. The average cost is around $3,500 per month.

Registered nurses and licensed practical nurses are generally available and on call.
