    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hagerstown

    Beautiful scenery and a charming small-town atmosphere are only two of the reasons to love Hagerstown. The city is a gateway to the Shenandoah Valley and rests along old transportation routes near the Cumberland Gap. Seniors will notice a mix of the old and new in Hagerstown, from Civil War history to modern dining. Seniors interested in assisted living in this area can choose from eight facilities within the city and 41 in the surrounding areas. Assisted living programs (ALPs) are licensed in Maryland by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hagerstown

    • The summer climate in Hagerstown is lovely, with an average high temperature of 87 degrees Fahrenheit in July. Seniors can get outside and take full advantage of the area's parks and walking trails. The winters, however, can be harsh for seniors who prefer warm climates. The city receives about 29 inches of snow each year.

    • Seniors can benefit from Hagerstown's low cost of living. On the 100-point index, Hagerstown is 11 points lower than the U.S. average and 28 points lower than the Maryland average. A low cost of living gives seniors more options for their retirement.

    • The crime rate in Hagerstown is higher than that of the nation and the state of Maryland. The chance of violent crime in Hagerstown is 1 in 175, and the chance of property crime is 1 in 32. 

    • The sales tax rate in Hagerstown is 6.0 percent, the same as the U.S. average. The income tax rate, at 7.6 percent, is 3.0 percent higher than the national average. While the state of Maryland does exempt some kinds of retirement income from taxation, including Social Security benefits, it fully taxes others. Maryland is also one of only two states in the nation that has both an inheritance and estate tax.

    • The Washington County Transit Department (WCT) runs eight fixed routes throughout the area and offers a senior discount. WCT also provides rides and a voucher program for seniors with disabilities who are unable to use the fixed-route service.

    • The Hagerstown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Meritus Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
