What to Consider About Assisted Living in Denton

Denton, Maryland, a site significant to the Underground Railroad, is a small historic town located along the Choptank River and nearby to the Eastern Shore. With small shops, rural areas and a population of less than 4,500 people, the city is a quaint and quiet destination to consider for retirement.   

Denton has two assisted living facilities for seniors. Locally and throughout Maryland, these facilities are categorized as Level 1, 2 or 3, where Level 1 provides the lowest level of assistance with personal care and activities of daily living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Denton

  • The summer months in Denton become hot and humid, with an average high temperature of 88 degrees Fahrenheit in July. In winter, the area gets less snow than average for the United States, but the temperatures drop to an average of 26 degrees. Seniors may prefer the spring and fall months for more pleasant outdoor weather.

  • The cost of living in Denton is similar to the U.S. average and 23 percent lower than average for Maryland. Compared with other cities in the state, Denton offers lower prices for housing, transportation, groceries and miscellaneous goods, which may help seniors stretch their budgets.

  • The income tax rate in Denton is 7.5 percent, compared with the U.S. average of 4.6 percent. The impact on seniors depends on their income source, as Social Security income is exempt and public pensions are only partially taxed in Maryland. The state charges taxes for inheritances, estates and income from private pensions.

  • Public transportation in Caroline County is provided by Delmarva Community Transit. Seniors 60 and older pay reduced fare. Door-to-door service is available with 24-hour notice. 

  • The crime rate in Denton is relatively high for its population size. Seniors may want to take precautions to protect their property, as the odds of property crime in Denton are 1 in 20. The chance of violent crime is lower than the state average, with odds of 1 in 731 in Denton and 1 in 212 statewide. 

  • Denton features senior-friendly activities for arts and culture, including the Caroline Summerfest, the Museum of Rural Life and a calendar full of downtown events, such as car shows, music festivals and farmers markets.
