Baltimore, Maryland

Nursing Homes

A nursing home community offers room and board to at least two seniors who are not related by blood or by marriage to the administrator. This type of establishment offers its residents 24-hour care administered by registered nurses. These nurses provide healthcare services for seniors who cannot adequately care for their own needs.

Nursing homes can be a convenient and easy living option for persons 65 years and above, however nursing homes will routinely accept persons 55 and greater which is unusual for other senior care types. Nursing homes are required to provide a professionallly directed program of activities, medically-related social services, routine personal hygiene items, and room and bed maintenance services to residents. Types of care services and amenities provided at nursing homes can include care coordination and case management, personal care (including dressing, bathing, and toilet assistance), monitoring serious illness and unstable health status, and adult day services . The most common mental disease effecting nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their memory function, and their sense of familiarity, and decision making capabilities. There are some services that may come at a cost to residents which can include a private room, unless medically needed, personal clothing, and special care services not included in the community's Medicaid payment. A significant portion of nursing home occupants are seniors who have a physical or mental disability, have incontinence issues, experience difficulty seeing and hearing, or require assistance with daily tasks such as getting dressed.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

For many seniors, particularly those with chronic diseases or those who require continuing care, proximity to medical communities is a key determinant when deciding which care option best fits you or your loved ones needs. The top hospitals in Baltimore include Medstar Union Memorial Hospital, Medstar Good Samaritan Hospital, and Sinai Hospital Of Baltimore. In total, there are 18 hospitals located in Baltimore which offer emergency services and other healthcare.

Cost of Living

The cost of care for a community is influenced by the community in which it is located. The cost-of-living index for Baltimore is around 96.8 where a score of 100 is the average, and anything lower than 100 is cheaper than the average. Baltimore has a grocery-price index of around 98.9. Baltimore has a sales tax of 6.00%.

Regional Climate and Weather Information

For many, climate and weather are a significant factor in selecting a care community. Baltimore has a humid subtropical type of climate. Monthly, Baltimore gets around 4 inches of precipitation. The most precipitation usually occurs in July with an average of 5 inches during the month. Baltimore receives an average of 18.50 inches of snow per year.
