As a senior citizen living in Washington DC, I am constantly asked how to find sober living. This is a very common question considering the increase in the number of seniors who have found themselves homeless. Unfortunately many seniors fall into this trap of relying on aid from family and friends, only to find they are no longer able to live independently. If you or a loved one is struggling with this question, I hope this article helps. The first thing I recommend is to check out transitional housing for seniors in the District of Columbia, as this may help you find a place to rent, while you search for a suitable permanent home.
Transitional living may include public housing, assisted living apartments or a specific residential service such as military housing or nursing homes. You can also check out smaller residential houses and buildings around town in either Rockville Silver Spring, Howard Park or further afield in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. There are a number of private transitional living apartments available too. Some people prefer to rent a house in D.C., and although there is some extra work associated with this route, it could prove to be more beneficial in the long run.
My preferred solution when looking for an answer to the question of how to find sober living in Washington, DC is to use the internet to do a little bit of research and find a list of services offered by transitional housing providers. The information provided should give you a good idea of what is on offer. This should also help you to find your way around town as well as identify possible rental houses that may suit your requirements. There is no doubt that these services will provide a welcome boost to your search and should ensure you find somewhere comfortable to live for the duration of your retirement years.
