What to Consider About Assisted Living in Easton

The Maryland Department of Health Assisted Living Unit licenses assisted living facilities in Easton and the rest of Maryland. All facilities must meet the requirements set forth by this department, which may include capacity, staffing and safety standards.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Easton

  • Easton has an average of 413 physicians for every 100,000 residents, while the national average in 2017 was 260 physicians per 100,000 residents. The town has multiple medical facilities, including the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton.
  • Seniors in Easton who prefer public transportation can ride for half-price through Delmarva Community Transit. This service covers Talbot County, along with the rest of the Eastern Shore. Easton assisted living facilities also have transportation services for residents.
  • Easton’s air quality rating is better than the state and national ratings. In addition, the town’s air quality health risk is lower than it is for Maryland and the United States as a whole, which may be an advantage for seniors with respiratory sensitivities.
  • Maryland is a moderately tax-friendly state, which may appeal to Easton seniors in assisted living on a limited income. Although there’s an inheritance and estate tax, there’s no 401(k) or Social Security tax in Maryland.
  • The violent and property crime rates in Easton are average, compared to the overall United States. Easton’s property crime rate is 39.0, which is only slightly higher than the U.S. average of 35.4. The violent crime rate is a low of 22.9, which is on par with the U.S. violent crime rate of 22.7.
  • Easton has a moderate climate, which allows for plenty of outdoor enjoyment. There are 216 sunny days per year in Easton, compared to the U.S. average of 205. Easton’s estimated 107 days of precipitation may be an advantage for seniors in assisted living who enjoy gardening.
