    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fort Washington

    Fort Washington is named for the fort built in 1809 to defend the river approach to the nation's capital. The fort is now a national park with picnic areas, bird watching and trails that may appeal to seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors. More than 21% of the community's 23,000 residents are aged 65 and over, and there are 57 assisted living facilities offering accommodation to seniors in the area. The Maryland Department of Health, Assisted Living Unit monitors assisted living facilities in Fort Washington.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fort Washington

    • Prince George's County operates TheBus, which provides public transportation in Fort Washington. Senior may also access Call-a-Bus, a curb-to-curb paratransit service. Both services are free for passengers aged 60 or older. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority also has bus routes in the area.
    • The Fort Washington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Fort Washington Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • At 139, Fort Washington's overall cost of living is 39 points higher than the national average of 100. At a rate of 100.5, the cost of healthcare is only slightly higher than the U.S. average. However, seniors' budgets may be impacted by the high cost of other everyday expenses, including groceries and transportation.
    • The State of the Air 2019 report gave Ozone pollution levels in Prince George's County, including Fort Washington, a failing grade. However, the county received an A grade for particle pollution. Seniors with respiratory conditions may wish to investigate how this mixed air quality may impact their health.
    • Retirement income from Social Security is exempt from state income tax in Maryland, while non-public pensions are fully-taxed. Income from public pensions or retirement savings accounts are taxed, but a deduction is available for taxpayers aged 65 and over. Sales taxes in the state are lower than the national average, allowing seniors in Fort Washington to save more for their assisted living budget.
    • The overall crime rate in Fort Washington is 17 crimes per 1,000 residents. Although this is higher than the national average, it's low compared to other communities of a similar size. Both violent crime and property crime in the community are lower than the Maryland average, which may reassure safety-conscious seniors.

    Note: Data reported on this page was updated in 2019 and based on the latest 2018 figures.
