    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Delmar

    The city of Delmar, Maryland, got its name in October of 1859 when the Delaware Railroad was extended, causing it to straddle the borders of both Delaware and Maryland. Today, this city that was once built on a rail line is home to over 3,000 people, with the senior population making up 8.2% of them. Seniors who need assistance with their personal care can find it at the two assisted living facilities in the city, or in another 10 located in nearby communities. Assisted living programs, as assisted living facilities are known in Delmar and throughout Maryland, are licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Delmar

    • Social Security benefits are not taxed in Maryland which may leave Delmar seniors with more money in their assisted living budgets.
    • Delmar has a violent crime rate of 26 and a property crime rate of 41.7, both higher than the national average of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Seniors may want to ensure that facilities are equipped with security alarms and cameras, and may also want to keep close track of their belongings when strolling through the city.
    • The Delmar area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Salisbury.
    • The cost of living in Delmar is 96.8, lower than both the state average of 124.6 and the national average of 100. Healthcare costs, at 94.4, are also lower than the state and national averages, which might appeal to seniors with chronic conditions or who require frequent medical appointments.
    • Shore Transit provides transportation to Delmar residents. Seniors 62 and older can receive discounted fares. However, an application must be completed and approved in order to qualify. Seniors younger than 62 may also qualify for reduced fares if they have a disability. Delmarva Community Transit also provides door-to-door transportation for area seniors at half the price of regular fares.
    • Delmar summer highs can climb to 87 degrees and winter lows rarely drop down below 27. Although the city gets 46 inches of rain each year, almost 10 more than the national average of 38 inches; it only gets 8 inches of annual snowfall, 20 less than the national average of 28 inches. This city might be ideal for seniors who enjoy four distinct seasons, but who dislike large amounts of snow.
