Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Arnold
- The Arnold area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Annapolis.
- Arnold’s violent crime rates are low at 20.9, compared to the national average of 22.7. The property crime rates in the city, however, are higher at 38.6, a little more than three points higher than the national average of 35.4. Seniors may want to double-check with facility staff about what security measures they have in place to keep their residents safe.
- The Office of Transportation has a paratransit service that provides curb-to-curb transportation to area seniors and disabled persons. In order to qualify, seniors need to be at least 65 years old, or 18 or older with a disability.
- Maryland fully taxes private pensions and partially taxes public pensions, which could impact how much money Arnold pensioners left over to contribute toward their care budgets.
- Although Maryland is known for having a high cost of living, Arnold’s cost of living is exceptionally high at 141.9, higher than both the state average of 124.6 and the U.S. average of 100. This is mainly driven by the high cost of housing in the area at 220.4, something that could impact city facility costs.
- Winters are chilly in Arnold where January lows dip down to 29 degrees and annual snowfalls reach 14 inches, which is half of the national average of 28 inches. Over the course of a year, the city also gets 44 inches of rain each year, six more than the national average of 38 inches. The 210 sunny days the city gets each year, five more than the national average of 205, might entice seniors who enjoy spending a lot of time participating in outdoor activities.
