Assisted living facilities in Maryland are referred to as Assisted Living Programs. The department that handles assisted living licensing in the state of Maryland is the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), the Office of Health Care Quality. This is the same department that licenses Maryland nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. There does not need to be a minimum number of residents in an assisted living facility to obtain a license.

Required Space Needed and Regulations

One-person private assisted living units in Maryland must have 80 square feet of total floor space without closets or alcoves and bathrooms. For double occupancy in one senior living unit, it must have 120 square feet of floor space. A two person per unit regulation is observed but a notable point is that this has been waived in the past.

The bathroom in all Maryland assisted living units has to be latched for privacy in individual bathrooms or stalls in shared toilets. One toilet for every 4 residents is required. On each level of the assisted living facility building, there must be an accessible and full toilet for every 4 residents. So, if there are 16 residents then there must be 4 full toilets.

Cost and How to Pay for Assisted Living in Maryland

Maryland average for assisted living in all cities is over the national average at $4,673 per month. The range throughout the state is $3,650 to $5,900 depending on the location of the particular assisted living facility. Baltimore and Hagerstown are the highest priced location for assisted living. Cumberland is generally in the range of $3,650 to $4,250 per month. Memory care in Maryland is around $1,168 more per month than assisted living. There is no support from Medicaid or Medicaid waiver in Maryland that directly assists those in assisted living facilities with personal care services. There is not that much of a swing between cities when it comes to assisted living costs as there is in other states. This is likely because Maryland is a small state in the BosWash area and it is expensive in every way. However, neighboring states may be the answer if you want to have lower assisted living costs, so you may want to research a few that have more cities to choose from.

There is hope for those who are not yet in assisted living that are actually good for those living at home, in Maryland senior housing or who are partaking in adult daycare. If you time things efficiently, there are waivers that are available in Maryland to provide personal care services at home or in a part time facility. In the meantime, you can actually look into options such as long-term-care insurance, renting out the senior citizens’ current home, annuities to cash in or life insurance policies. There is a lot of help out there for public servant retirees and veteran’s benefits. Even if you are a dependent of those who served the public or a spouse, you may be entitled to supplementation for assisted living. There are also non-profits throughout Maryland that can be utilized to help offset high assisted living costs.

The key to this is timing. Can the person stay out of assisted living for a definite amount of time that you can predict? The waivers available can be used while you are getting things together for a future assisted living stay. Some of the aforementioned payment options take some research time and some time to execute as well.
