    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Salisbury

    Salisbury is the county seat of Wicomico County, Maryland, and is located at the head of the river from which the county is named. Salisbury is quiet and pleasant, with the nearby Chesapeake Bay adding to its charm. Seniors can bask in the city's natural beauty at several parks, such as Pemberton Historical Park.

    Seniors who like this area can choose from six local assisted living programs (ALPs) in Salisbury and eight others nearby for support with daily living activities, personal care, medication administration and recreational activities. All ALPs in Maryland are regulated by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Salisbury

    • The moderate climate of Salisbury offers pleasant weather for outdoor recreation. The summer high temperature averages 88 degrees Fahrenheit, and the city sees more sunny days each year than the national average. In winter, Salisbury gets about five inches of snow and sees an average low temperature of about 27 degrees in January. 

    • Unfortunately, the crime rate in Salisbury is very high. At 90.8 out of 100, the city's violent crime rate is nearly three times the national average. Salisbury has a property crime rate of 78.6 out of 100, which is about twice the national average. 

    • Overall, the cost of living in Salisbury is lower than both the state and national averages. The housing costs are much lower than average for Maryland. Seniors can expect to pay about the same for health care in Salisbury as they would elsewhere in Maryland and the U.S., but grocery rates are considerably higher in Salisbury compared with the national average.

    • Salisbury's income tax rate of 8 percent is considerably higher than the nation's average of 4.6 percent. Seniors should be aware that Maryland does exempt certain types of retirement income from taxation, including Social Security. However, income from a 401(k) or IRA is taxable. Additionally, the state is one of only two that charges an estate tax and an inheritance tax.

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

    • Shore Transit provides public transportation for the Salisbury area, including services for seniors who are unable to access regular stops. People 62 and older can receive a senior discount for bus fare.
