What to Consider About Assisted Living in Odenton
Odenton, located in east-central Maryland along the shores of Chesapeake Bay, was a farming community until the railroad was constructed in 1840. These days, area residents, including the 3,688 senior population, can roll a spare at the local bowling alley or stop by the local brewery for a cold drink on a hot summer day. To accommodate these seniors, there are two assisted living facilities located within Odenton and another 80 facilities located in the neighboring communities.
These facilities, known as Assisted Living Programs in Odenton and throughout Maryland, are licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Odenton
- Odenton’s cost of living is 124.7, almost on par with the state average of 124.6 and significantly higher than the U.S. average of 100, driven primarily by housing costs. Seniors can expect to pay less for groceries and healthcare in the city, but transportation costs are higher than the national average at 116.1. The higher housing costs in Odenton could drive up facility costs.
Social Security benefits are not taxed in Maryland, which could leave more money for facility budgets for Odenton seniors.
