    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hampstead

    Hampstead is a small town located in east-central Maryland along  Chesapeake Bay. It was first settled by English immigrants in the 1730s and was originally called Spring Garden. Since then, the community has grown into a town of nearly 64,000 residents, about one in 10 of whom are seniors.

    To support the senior population, Hampstead has two assisted living facilities. Seniors seeking more options can find 30 more facilities nearby. In Hampstead, as in the rest of the state, assisted living facilities may be categorized as a Level I, Level II or Level III facility, depending on the level of care provided. These facilities are licensed by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and are officially called assisted living programs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hampstead

    • Hampstead's air quality is relatively poor, which may be a concern for seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. The American Lung Association gives Carroll County, where Hampstead is located, a D for ozone pollution, indicating fairly high levels of this type of pollution.  
    • The Hampstead area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Westminster.
    • Public transportation in Hampstead is provided courtesy of Carroll Transit System. This non-profit organization operates Demand Response rides and four fixed routes throughout the region. Adults age 60 and over ride for a reduced fare.  
    • Maryland is moderately tax-friendly for seniors. Retirees do not pay state income tax on income from Social Security income, and public pensions and retirement savings accounts are only partially taxed. Income from private pensions is fully taxed.
    • Hampstead has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Bureau of Aging and Disabilities, an organization that organizes and implements social, recreational and fitness programs for older adults, as well as one senior center.
    • While Hampstead's overall cost of living is about 17% higher than the U.S. average, it is roughly 10% lower than the statewide average, which may appeal to seniors who have tight assisted living budgets. Housing costs are fairly high here, but seniors can expect to spend about 3% less on healthcare expenses than they would elsewhere in the nation, which may offset some living expenses.
