Assisted Living in Maryland

When it comes to assisted living, Maryland is a great place to start your search.

Maryland is a transition state in several ways, making it an attractive retirement destination. The state falls in the middle of the country’s Northeast, Southern, and Midwestern regions, and its culture combines elements of them all. This is part of why Maryland earned the nickname “America in Miniature.” With the Appalachian Mountains passing through the far western part of the state, and the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic coastlines in the east, Maryland’s geographical features give residents plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities — even in a small state. Annapolis and Baltimore are also home to many historic Colonial sites, and Washington, D.C. sits on Maryland’s southern border.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 690 assisted living facilities in Maryland.

The median monthly cost of assisted living in Maryland is about $5,500.

The Charleston Senior Community (AZ) in Waldorf, MD
4.3

Everyone down there has been extremely helpful. Everyone is pleasant. The food is outstanding. They have a lot of activities. But the care is the most important thing. And everyone really takes care of my loved one, a heck of a lot better than I was able to do. They're doing a good job with the Covid situation, checking people in and being on top of everything. I would highly recommend them.

My sister has lived at Forest Hills in the Health Care Center for a while. Before the pandemic, they had wonderful activities as well as great nursing care. In the pandemic they have done an incredible job to keep everyone safe, to figure out ways to have safe activities and/or virtual or safe visitation zones (following CDC guidelines). The staff is working under challenging circumstances and they continue to be kind, patient and deliver high quality care. We are so very grateful my sister can live in such a great facility.
