What to Consider About Assisted Living in Elkton

Elkton, Maryland, lies to the west of the Delaware border at the tip of Elk River and the Elk Neck State Forest so there are plenty of activities for nature-loving seniors. Seniors make up about 10 percent of Elkton's residents and can choose from five assisted living facilities in town and another 15 close by. 

Assisted Living Facilities are designed to offer seniors support and assistance with activities of daily living. Services like medication management, supervision and social activities may be offered. These facilities are regulated by the Maryland Department of Health.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Elkton

  • History buffs can take time exploring the Sheriff John F. Dewitt Museum that has military memorabilia covering all Armed Forces branches from the Revolutionary War up to Desert Storm. Outdoorsy seniors have access to lush landscape and over 80 miles of nature trails at the Fair Hill Natural Resource Management Area (NRMA). 

  • Elkton’s cost of living is only 11.80 percent higher than the national average, so seniors shouldn't have much difficulty affording daily necessities or running errands.

  • With just 13 inches of snow and an average low of 24 degrees in January, the winters in Elkton are quite tolerable. If seniors can brave the chilly weather, they can enjoy warm summers with average highs of 88 degrees in July.

  • Seniors with severe asthma or a respiratory illness should consider how living in Elkton could affect their health. Cecil County was given a poor quality ozone rating of F from the American Lung Association.

  • The Elkton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Union Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

  • Crime rates in Elton are some of the highest, compared to the national averages. Violent crime is a whopping 61 percent higher in Elton than the rest of the country, which may make seniors feel unsafe. Property crime is also very high, nearly double the national average, so seniors may be concerned about their possessions.
