    What to Consider About Assisted Living in La Plata

    Located in Southern Maryland about 30 miles southeast of Washington, DC, the town of La Plata is the county seat for Charles County and home to about 9,500 residents. It’s also 60 miles south of Baltimore, so La Plata’s senior citizens enjoy close proximity to big-city amenities and services while residing in a beautiful small-town environment.

    Adults aged 65 and older make up nearly 15% of La Plata’s population. To support those who require help with personal care, medication management and other daily activities, La Plata offers two assisted living facilities, with another eight found in nearby cities. Maryland’s Department of Health oversees the licensing of the state’s assisted living programs (ALPs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in La Plata

    • La Plata seniors qualify for reduced fares on the Charles County public transportation system known as VanGO that delivers riders to several of the most popular locations in the region. Seniors unable to use the fixed route system may qualify for specialized services that include door-to-door transportation.
    • The American Lung Association grades La Plata, and all of Charles County, a “D” for ozone pollution. This may be hazardous to the health of seniors with lung or heart conditions.
    • La Plata offers an array of resources for seniors, including the Richard R. Clark Senior Center, which provides adults aged 60 and over with health screenings, nutritious lunches, trips, social and recreational activities, and computer classes.
    • La Plata’s climate may be too wet for active seniors who like to spend a great deal of time outdoors. The area receives 45 inches of rain on average each year and 16 inches of snow.
    • La Plata retirees do not pay state taxes on Social Security benefits, but Maryland does tax income from IRAs and 401(k) plans. Seniors with sizable estates should consider that Maryland is one of just two states that levy both an estate and an inheritance tax.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in La Plata

    Maryland’s Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidy (SALGHS) program provides seniors who are unable to live independently with subsidies to support the cost of personal care, daily meals and 24-hour supervision in smaller ALPs licensed for four to 16 residents. The Community Options and Community First Choice Medicaid Waivers also cover services received in assisted living. Some seniors may also be eligible for the Optional State Supplement.
