How to choose an assisted living facility in Baltimore

Finding the right assisted living community in Baltimore requires identifying the services and amenities you or your loved one needs while also keeping your budget in mind. The right community should offer a balance of medical, social and financial assistance.

When comparing assisted living communities in Baltimore, it helps to consider the following:

  • Levels of care: Inquire about the level of medical, social and everyday care each facility provides. Common care levels include independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing. If you or your loved one needs one service in particular, find a community that has a long track record of helping residents with that need.
  • Staff: Choose a community with licensed and trained nursing staff. Check qualifications as necessary, and inquire about the ratio of residents to staff members.
  • Amenities: Assisted living facilities offer a multitude of amenities, including libraries, fitness centers, outdoor spaces, social activities, dining halls and entertainment. Other benefits often include personalized care services and scheduled transportation. Find out which amenities you or your loved one wants from a community, and look for facilities with those options.
  • Location: Some people want a facility that is close to a hospital, while others want a facility that is close to loved ones. Map out your options in Baltimore and compare the merits of each location.

Of course, cost is often the most important factor in choosing a facility. However, you should consider the above factors and read reviews from residents and their loved ones to see if the amenities, care and services justify the price.

How much does assisted living cost in Baltimore?

On average, assisted living in Baltimore costs between $2,000 and $6,000 per month. This is a large range, but your cost depends on the facility you choose and the level of care required. For example, if you choose a facility with more individual care and a large number of amenities, expect to pay more than average.

Many people look to payment plans and community discounts to offset these expenses. However, if assisted living is either too expensive or more help than you need, consider aging in place. If you or your loved one wants to stay in their home long-term, consider purchasing a medical alert system, stair lift or walk-in tub.
