    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Easton

    Easton, Maryland, is situated along the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Seniors here can revel in the peaceful scenic beauty of the town and still enjoy all the fun of nearby cities like Baltimore and Annapolis. In the state of Maryland, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene licenses three types of assisted living programs (ALPs) and, unlike many other states, does not stipulate a minimum number of residents for ALPs. The Easton area offers 13 assisted living facilities, with four located in city limits. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Easton

    • The cost of living in Easton is higher than the national average, with a rank of 115 on the 100-point cost of living index. Seniors will find health care rates are about the same as the nation's, but grocery costs are considerably higher.

    • Easton's climate is moderate for the area. The summers are warm, with an average July high of 89 degrees Fahrenheit and more sunny days than the U.S. average. Winters are milder in Easton than in other cities in Maryland, with a January low of 27 degrees and about 13 inches of annual snowfall.

    • The violent crime rate in Easton is lower than the state and national averages. However, the rate of property crime is higher in Easton than the Maryland average. The local odds of property crime victimization are 1 in 34.

Maryland is one of just two states in the nation that has both an estate and inheritance tax. 

    • The Easton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
