What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clarksville

Clarksville is located in Howard County, Maryland, and is home to about 11,000 people. In spite of the town's relatively small size, it has a senior community that accounts for nearly 12% of the population. 

Clarksville seniors have two assisted living facilities to choose from, and there are about 50 more in nearby cities. In Maryland, these facilities are officially called Assisted Living Programs and are divided into one of three categories, depending on the level of care they provide. These facilities are licensed by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clarksville

  • In Clarksville, seniors do not pay state income tax on income from Social Security income, and income from public pensions and retirement savings accounts is only partially taxed. Income from private pensions is fully taxed, which may affect some seniors' assisted living budgets.
  • Clarksville's air quality is very good, which may appeal to seniors with conditions such as COPD or heart disease. The American Lung Association gives Howard County, where Clarksville is located, an "A" for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution.
  • The Clarksville area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Columbia.
  • Clarksville is a very expensive place to live, with an overall cost of living that is nearly double the national average and about 70% higher than the statewide average. This may be a consideration for some seniors on a fixed income.
  • Clarksville has very little crime, which may make it a good option for seniors who are looking for a safe community to spend their retirement years. On a 100-point crime index, the city's violent crime rate is 5.1, versus the national rate of 22.7, and the property crime rate is 11.8, compared to the national average of 35.4.
  • Year-round temperatures in Clarksville range between 24 degrees and 88 degrees Fahrenheit. The area only gets about 17 inches of snow annually, versus the national average of 28 inches, which may appeal to seniors who rely on mobility aids.
