10 Best Nursing Homes in Baltimore, MD

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Baltimore stands as Maryland’s most dynamic destination, presenting a delightful array of sports, cuisine, and cultural experiences. Charm City’s significance as the birthplace of The Star-Spangled Banner and its position on the picturesque Chesapeake Bay blends the past and present, catering to a wide spectrum of interests.

Navigating the various types of senior care options in Baltimore can be challenging because the term “nursing home” is often used as a catch-all for senior living communities that offer different types of care. Traditional nursing homes, however, are skilled nursing facilities that provide 24/7 care to individuals with significant health conditions. As such, people searching for “nursing homes” often really only need the kind of care associated with assisted living or memory care facilities. Memory care facilities provide round-the-clock specialized care and long-term housing for seniors with memory loss conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, while assisted living offers support for seniors who are somewhat active but need help with certain activities of daily living.

A Place for Mom partners with 67 senior care facilities within a 10-mile radius of downtown Baltimore. These range from stand-alone assisted living facilities and memory care to group homes, which are residential homes converted into small assisted living communities. Some of these options have skilled nursing wings or on-site nursing care.

This guide offers a closer look at our partner communities in Baltimore, covering the different types of senior care facilities, average costs, payment options, and the various regulations governing the facilities. Additionally, you and your loved one will discover what makes the home of The Star-Spangled Banner such a great city to live in.

Costs of nursing homes in the Baltimore area

The average monthly cost of skilled nursing care in Baltimore is approximately $10,798 for a semi-private room and $13,490 for a private room.[01] This is slightly higher than the national average. Skilled nursing care stands apart from other long-term care options as it offers more extensive on-site health services to cater to seniors who require around-the-clock supervision.

Skilled nursing facilities typically provide the following services and amenities:

  • Palliative care
  • Rehabilitation services
  • 24/7 medical presence
  • On-site healthcare
  • Short-term care for post-surgery or injury recovery

However, not every senior requires 24/7 medical care, making assisted living or memory care more appealing for those who wish to maintain more independence.

For seniors considering assisted living or memory care, A Place for Mom’s proprietary data estimates the monthly costs to be approximately $4,881 for assisted living and $5,262 for memory care at our partner communities.[02] These figures include additional fees and service fee add-ons, such as health care service, meals and dining, on-site activities, assistance with personal care, and more.

How people pay for a nursing home in Baltimore

Various methods are available for seniors and their families to cover the costs of skilled nursing, memory care, or assisted living. In this section, you will discover how private pay, VA benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare can be utilized to finance a move into a senior care community.

Private pay methods

Alongside other publicly available resources, private pay methods are frequently used to cover expenses associated with skilled nursing care, memory care, and assisted living. Standard income streams include personal savings, pensions, investment returns, and Social Security benefits. Moreover, those seeking additional private sources may consider the following options:

VA benefits for nursing homes in Baltimore

Number of veterans who live in Baltimore

About 26% of Baltimore veterans are 75+

Eligible veterans in Baltimore are provided with a range of benefits specifically designed to aid them with senior living expenses. One of these benefits is the VA Pension, a program that extends financial support to qualified veterans. Its primary goal is to enhance the recipient’s quality of life by alleviating the burden of senior living costs and ensuring they receive the care they deserve.

Another commonly utilized benefit is Aid and Attendance, which offers additional monthly payments to qualifying wartime veterans receiving the VA Pension. This benefit is designed to aid those who require assistance with daily activities, are bedridden due to an illness, or have impaired vision.

While the Aid and Attendance benefit application can be found online, applying for benefits can be complex and time-consuming. To ensure that seniors receive all the benefits they are entitled to, we recommend consulting with a veterans services officer before proceeding with the application. A veterans services officer is equipped to provide veterans with the most up-to-date benefits advice and will ensure they do not miss out on any eligible benefits.

In Baltimore, seniors can find these officers through local branches of veterans services organizations (VSOs) such as the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Veterans of Foreign Wars. These organizations serve as valuable community resources, offering access to other local resources that may not be as widely known.

For additional support or questions, the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs, Baltimore’s Commission on Veterans Affairs, and the VA’s Regional Baltimore Office are available to assist veterans.

Medicaid

Known as Medical Assistance in Maryland, Medicaid does not cover room and board costs for assisted living or memory care communities. However, it can be used to cover skilled nursing. To be eligible for Medicaid, seniors must meet certain income limits, and nursing facilities must meet specific requirements, including being licensed and certified by the state.

Even though Medicaid won’t cover room and board expenses for seniors interested in assisted living or memory care, they can still utilize it for medically necessary in-home health care costs — such as medications, physical therapy, respite care, and more — through the home and community based services (HCBS) waiver program. There are other programs that can help with in-home personal and health care costs, such as the Community Personal Assistance Services program, the Community First Choice option, the Increased Community Services program, and the Community Services for Older Adults and People with Disabilities program.

Additionally, the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is specifically designed to offer coordinated health services to seniors, helping them maintain their independence. In Baltimore, PACE is available at Hopkins ElderPlus.

Seniors can apply for Medical Assistance by utilizing the myMDTHINK online platform or by submitting a physical application to the Maryland Department of Human Services. For detailed information on income guidelines and eligibility, the Department of Health website offers a comprehensive manual. If your or your loved one needs Medicaid advocacy support, Maryland’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program can help.

Medicare

Skilled nursing is only partially covered by Medicare because it’s classified as custodial care. Medicare Part A covers skilled nursing facility care if certain conditions are met, including having Part A coverage and remaining days in the benefit period, experiencing a qualifying in-patient stay, and having a doctor’s determination that daily skilled care is necessary.

Medicare does not cover room and board for assisted living and memory care facilities, but it can help with short-term in-home medical care needs and health expenses. However, for seniors utilizing Medicare and needing additional financial assistance, Maryland offers several resources to provide support.

Medicare open enrollment can be accessed through the Department of Aging website or the Social Security Administration. For Medicare-related concerns or advocacy needs, individuals can seek assistance and support from the dedicated ombudsman programs offered by the Baltimore City Division of Aging and Care Services and the Maryland Long-Term Care Ombudsman.

Understand Maryland laws and regulations for nursing homes

Several organizations at the state and federal levels regulate skilled nursing facilities in Maryland. For all skilled nursing facilities participating in Medicare or Medicaid, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) enforces standards, while Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) regulates licensing of skilled nursing at a state level. Inspections are conducted once a year at a minimum and will happen more frequently if the facility is performing poorly.

In Maryland, all nursing homes are required to provide physician and nursing services; dietetic services; behavioral health services; pharmacy services; specialized rehabilitation services; at least three meals a day; laboratory, radiology, and diagnostic services; dental services; social services; housekeeping; and resident activities. In addition, nursing home administrators must be licensed by the state and there must be a licensed, registered nurse present 24/7.

Assisted living communities, including those with memory care units, are known as Assisted Living Programs (ALPs) in Maryland and are licensed and overseen by DHMH. Inspections are conducted at least every 15 months to ensure compliance. ALPs must meet basic assisted living requirements, including on-site nursing services by a registered nurse, 24/7 staffing, and managers completing 20 hours of continuing education every two years. Additionally, staff assisting with personal care must undergo at least five hours of mental illness and cognitive impairment training within 90 days of employment.

For memory care services, which fall under assisted living regulations, there are further guidelines:

  • The building must be designed to cater to the needs of residents with dementia.
  • Staff must be capable of handling behaviors that could harm other residents and managing immediate psychological episodes.

Maryland’s inspections for skilled nursing, assisted living, and memory care can be found on the Health Care Commission’s Quality Reporting website.

COVID-19 regulations for Baltimore nursing homes

Currently, there are no specific city or statewide COVID-19 regulations in place. Instead, seniors and families are advised to follow the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In Maryland, the long-term care guidelines align with the recommendations provided by the CDC.

An illustration of a protective breathing mask

Masking. Health care personnel and volunteers are recommended to use well-fitting, medical-grade face masks. Visitors may choose cloth face masks.

Facility cleanliness. Assigning dedicated equipment to each resident when possible helps ensure thorough disinfection between use by different residents. Additionally, regular disinfection of high-touch surfaces is crucial.

Quarantining. Facilities should have a designated space where individuals needing to isolate can stay. This applies to both new admissions and current residents exposed to COVID-19, regardless of their vaccination status.

What to expect from nursing homes in Baltimore

Baltimore exudes vibrancy and diversity, providing its residents with plenty to see and do. The city’s thriving art scene, picturesque neighborhoods, and delightful culinary landscape ensure never-ending entertainment options for when you visit your loved one. Additionally, Baltimore’s convenient location along the East Coast grants easy access to popular destinations such as New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., making it an ideal hub.

Although Baltimore’s senior care communities may appear similar at first glance, they offer distinct experiences for their residents. Assisted living is more suitable for individuals who require some assistance with personal care and daily activities while still retaining a certain level of independence. Memory care is the best option for those in need of specialized care to assist with dementia and other memory illnesses. Lastly, skilled nursing care caters to seniors needing specialized medical attention throughout the day without requiring hospitalization.

Care to meet all needs

Of our 67 partner facilities within a 10-mile radius, one is a stand-alone memory care facility, and four are stand-alone assisted living communities. The other 63 offer a combination of care to address seniors’ unique needs. Among these are group homes, which are residential homes converted into small assisted living communities that are often available at a reduced price and provide an experience more catered to individuals. The other combined senior care facilities include:

  • 1 assisted living and adult day care facility
  • 1 assisted living and independent living facility
  • 1 adult day care, group home, and memory care facility
  • 7 group home and memory care facilities
  • 15 assisted living and memory care facilities
  • 37 group homes

Residents receive personalized care plans at these combined facilities tailored to their unique requirements and preferences. The staff collaborates closely with residents and their families to ensure they receive the necessary care and support.

Additionally, many more options are available within a 25-mile radius of downtown Baltimore:

  • 1 assisted living, group home, and memory care facility
  • 1 assisted living and independent living facility
  • 3 stand-alone memory care facilities
  • 3 assisted living, independent living, and memory care facilities
  • 9 standalone assisted living facilities
  • 19 assisted living and memory care facilities
  • 20 group home and memory care facilities
  • 46 group homes

Activities to meet diverse interests

Baltimore’s rich cultural scene provides a variety of engaging activities suitable for seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia, such as visiting museums, theaters, art galleries, and historical landmarks. The city also offers a well-established network of senior centers and programs that cater to seniors’ needs by providing social activities, educational classes, fitness programs, and support groups. These opportunities keep seniors active, socially connected, and mentally stimulated.

The facilities themselves also provide on-site activities to help foster a strong sense of community and keep residents engaged, including devotional activities, arts and crafts, movie nights, holiday parties, and more.

A place that provides peace of mind

Around 23 of our partner senior care communities in Baltimore offer memory care and include the amenities that make this care type a great option for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia. This means secured entrances and exits with staff on hand to manage the side effects of these diseases. The staff has specialized memory care training in 63% of facilities, while 21% of communities have wander guards or similar systems to reduce wandering residents and keep communities safe.[02]

Transportation for seniors in Baltimore

Baltimore is a compact city with convenient transportation options. While driving is common, the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) offers multiple bus and light rail routes for public transportation. For friends and family visiting seniors in long-term care, the Charm City Circulator operates a shuttle system through the central business district.

Seniors who cannot travel alone have various transit choices if they want to leave the community. MobilityLink is a shared ride door-to-door service for individuals who cannot use fixed MTA transit services. Before using MobilityLink, riders must apply, and a personal care attendant can accompany seniors who need assistance.

Baltimore’s TaxiCard program presents a subsidized transportation solution tailored for seniors and individuals with disabilities. With the convenience of approved taxicab companies, eligible participants can access rides through this program. Registering online is a straightforward process, as long as individuals meet the necessary eligibility requirements, opening up a world of convenient travel options for those in need.

Additionally, FreedomCar is a pay-as-you-go car service that provides transportation to appointments and errands for seniors. For those on Medical Assistance, Medical Assistance Transportation is another option available to seniors who require rides to medical appointments. Both services accommodate individuals in wheelchairs as well.

It’s also worthwhile to confirm whether the facility itself offers any transportation services. Among our partner facilities, 54% provide complimentary transportation, and 46% offer at-cost transportation to appointments, errands, and senior centers.[02]

Senior activities in Baltimore

Baltimore is a city known for its diversity and wide range of attractions and activities that are easily accessible to everyone. History enthusiasts will find plenty to explore, with numerous traditional museums and historical landmarks to visit. However, discovering suitable activities for individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be challenging, considering factors like mood, time of day, and the stage of the disease. Nonetheless, there are several activities that families can consider when venturing out into Baltimore, no matter their ability.

One such option is TALMAR’s Nature Memory Cafe, available on the third Friday of each month. This unique event allows seniors, family, and friends to connect with others while exploring nature at the TALMAR Horticultural Center. Seniors can delight in the garden and its wildlife, while families can connect with others who are going through similar experiences.

Additionally, Baltimore County’s government website offers a resource for dementia-friendly events. Collaborating with Dementia Friendly Baltimore County, they have identified events suitable for individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia and update the calendar regularly.

The city offers great options for sports fans, including Camden Yards, the home of the Baltimore Orioles baseball team, and M&T Bank Stadium, where the Ravens play. As these sports have seasons that complement each other, there’s almost always a live game to enjoy with friends and family, making it convenient for sports enthusiasts to participate. For accessibility information, including mobility devices, assistive listening devices, closed captioning, and more, view the Baltimore Ravens’ accessible seating page and the ADA seating guide.

To uncover Baltimore’s significant impact on the United States, explore some of the city’s historic houses with your loved one. The Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum, designated as a national historic landmark, offers visitors a chance to step into the very residence where Poe began his literary journey. Operating from Thursday to Sunday, this house is conveniently located near Poe’s grave, making it an enticing destination for enthusiasts. Another iconic house worth visiting is the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House, once the home of Mary Pickersgill, the skilled seamstress who crafted the U.S. flag that inspired the poem on which the U.S. national anthem is based.

Discover the wonders of Baltimore’s National Aquarium, a perfect attraction for seniors and their families. With the exclusive First Saturdays and Sundays program, guests with disabilities and their companions can enjoy a crowd-free half-hour entry before the general opening on the first Saturday and Sunday of each month. More than 20,000 aquatic creatures await in exhibits such as the open-ocean shark tank and multiple-story Atlantic Coral Reef, representing an astounding 750 species in their natural habitats. The Aquarium is dedicated to accessibility, offering various options to ensure everyone’s comfort. For seniors aged 70 and above, general admission tickets are $39.95.

More Maryland culture can be found at the Maryland Center for History and Culture. This center is wheelchair-accessible and boasts an impressive collection of over 200,000 items and artifacts, vividly depicting the story and history of life in Maryland.
