What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sykesville

Sykesville lies along the Chesapeake Bay in eastern central Maryland. The area is known for its breathtaking scenery, from the vastness of the plains to the majestic beauty of the Appalachian Mountains just 50 miles to the west. Seniors who prefer to live in this scenic area but require assistance with activities of daily living are in luck. There are three assisted living programs in the city and another 87 facilities in the area, all of which are licensed through the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sykesville

  • Sykesville's cost of living index ranked 28.2 percent higher than the U.S. average and that of the state. Seniors pay about the same for health care in Sykesville as anywhere else in the nation. Grocery prices, in both the city and the state, are higher than that of the country.

  • Crime is about the same in Sykesville as the averages of both the United States and Maryland. Seniors should note that the city has a slightly lower violent and property crime rate than the nation and the state.

  • The moderate climate in Sykesville is considered nearly perfect by many seniors. Summers in the area tend to be warm and humid and while the city does have around 21 inches of snowfall each year, it tends to come in small increments.

  • The Sykesville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Northwest Hospital in Randallstown and Carroll Hospital Center in Westminster, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • The tax rate in Sykesville is high. While the sales tax rate, at 6.0 percent, is the same as the national average, the income tax rate is 3.2 percent higher. Though the state of Maryland does provide tax exemptions for some types of retirement income, it taxes income from IRAs and 401(k)s. It is one of just two states that has both an inheritance and estate tax.

  • Sykesville has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Maryland Department of Aging Senior Center Services, an organization that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle for seniors to help them retain their independence, as well as five county senior centers.
