What to Consider About Assisted Living in Delmar

Delmar, which has been dubbed the "Town Too Big for One State," is actually two incorporated towns located in Sussex County, Delaware, and Wicomico County, Maryland. The town's history stretches back to 1859 when Elijah Freeney, a large estate owner, laid out the small town and built the first house and first store. Today, Delmar, Maryland, has just over 3,000 residents, about 10% of whom are aged 65 and over.   

Local seniors who need assistance with daily living activities can choose from a dozen assisted living facilities, including two of which are in Delmar proper. These facilities, which may also be called "assisted living programs," are categorized based on the level of care they provide and are licensed by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Delmar

  • Maryland does not tax Social Security benefits or government pension income, but retirees pay state income tax on all other forms of retirement income. 
  • The Delmar area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Salisbury. 
  • Public transportation in Delmar is provided by Shore Transit, which has over 200 bus stops in the region. Seniors age 62 and over are eligible for a discounted fare.   
  • Delmar has a moderate climate with summer highs around 87 degrees and winter lows in the upper-20s. The city receives just 8 inches of annual snowfall, which is about 20 inches below the national average. This may appeal to seniors who rely on mobility aids like walkers and wheelchairs.   
  • Compared to the national averages, Delmar’s property and violent crime rates are high. Seniors may want to ensure that the assisted living facility they choose has safety features like high-security locks to keep residents safe.  
  • Delmar is an affordable place to live, with a cost of living that is about 3% below the national average and almost 30% below the statewide median, making it a good option for seniors who have tight assisted living budgets.
