The Aged Woman’s Home of Georgetown (the Home) is a historic residence for senior citizens who are physically capable of independent living (meeting the ADL and IADL standards) but are not financially able to support themselves in the DC community. The Home provides the emotional support, companionship, security, and the benefits of group living.
The Home offers, free of charge, a private room with basic necessities: a bed including linens, dresser, chair, table, small refrigerator, and induction cooker for cooking. Guests share bathroom and laundry facilities. Guests are expected to comply with all rules of the Home. They must be able to climb stairs, prepare simple meals, keep their rooms neat and clean, do their own laundry, and maintain personal cleanliness and hygiene.
No regular meals are provided at the Home. Throughout the year parties, picnics, and special holiday dinners are given by the Board of Directors. Interested community groups also donate gifts and food.
