Assisted Living in Baltimore, Maryland

Located on the edge of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland’s largest city of Baltimore is home to approximately 585,700 people. People aged 65 or above make up 14% of the local population. When it comes to health, the city has a higher number of physicians per capita than the national average and is home to The John Hopkins Hospital, which ranks nationally for several medical specialties and is among the top five hospitals in the country. With its low cost of living, sunny climate, two local chapters of AARP and diverse activities and attractions, Baltimore is a great retirement destination.

Assisted living communities support seniors who require assistance with everyday activities, such as personal care or domestic chores. Assisted living can be a good choice for older adults who can’t live independently but don’t need the around-the-clock supervision and clinical care of nursing homes. In Baltimore, assisted living costs an average of $4,750 per month, which is a little more affordable than the statewide average of $4,900.

This guide provides an overview of assisted living in Baltimore, with a comparison of statewide costs and a list of resources to help older adults enjoy a good quality of life.
