What to Consider About Assisted Living in Port Deposit

Port Deposit is located along the Delaware River in Maryland near the New Jersey border. Captain John Smith was the town's first European visitor in 1608 and 1609. Today, the entire town is on the National Historic Register, and it prides itself on maintaining its historic character. There are just 650 residents, about 15% of whom are aged 65 and over.  

Assisted living facilities in Port Deposit, which may also be called assisted living programs, are categorized according to the level of care they provide. Port Deposit has three assisted living facilities, and there are 11 more nearby. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Port Deposit

  • Port Deposit's overall cost of living is about 18% higher than the U.S. average but about 7% lower than the statewide average, which may make it a good option for Maryland natives who are seeking affordable assisted living.  
  • While Port Deposit has a relatively high property crime rate, coming in at 45.6 on a 100-point index versus the national average of 35.4, the town's violent crime rate is low at 15.4 versus the national average of 22.7. Although Port Deposit is generally safe, seniors may want to seek out an assisted living facility with security features like surveillance cameras.  
  • Port Deposit's summers tend to be very warm with July highs near 90 degrees, which is warmer than most communities in Maryland. January, the coldest month in Port Deposit, typically has lows near 20 degrees and receives about 7 inches of the town's annual snowfall of 16 inches. This climate may appeal to seniors who enjoy experiencing four distinct seasons. 
  • Social Security income is not subject to state income tax in Maryland. Non-public pension income is fully taxed, and the state partially taxes all other types of retirement income. This may affect how much money can be put toward assisted living in Port Deposit.  
  • The Port Deposit area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Havre De Grace.
  • While particle pollution is not a concern in Port Deposit, the American Lung Association reports very high levels of ozone pollution in the region, which may affect the health of those with certain conditions.
