Maryland Assisted Living
Records & Reports

When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. Public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in the state of Maryland:

KEY FINDINGS

  • Maryland is one of very few states to include information about the pricing of assisted living communities online.
  • Maryland has one of the easiest to use and most attractive state websites for researching assisted living records. However, surveys for communities with less than 10 residents are not available.

TIPS FOR FAMILIES

  • Visit Maryland’s Guide to Consumer Long Term Care to find a listing of licensed providers.
  • A second database with additional community types is available at this state of Maryland website.
  • Visit www.eldercare.gov to locate the appropriate long-term-care ombudsman who can often provide specific information about communities and their backgrounds.
  • If you need to make a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to get records, consider browsing the state-by-state resources from the National Freedom of Information Coalition, which includes sample state-specific FOIA letters.
