What to Consider About Assisted Living in Street
Street is a rural village in Harford County that still bears the marks of its earliest days as a Dutch colony, mostly in the older homes with gabled roofs near what was once a stop on the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad line connecting Philadelphia with Washington.
Harford County is home to nearly 254,000 people, 16% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over. Modern Street has only two assisted living facilities for seniors within its limits, though others can be found in the rolling countryside nearby. These facilities, like others throughout the state, are regulated and licensed by the Maryland Department of Health Assisted Living Unit.
