What to Consider About Assisted Living in Upper Marlboro

The Maryland Department of Health licenses and regulates all assisted living and long-term care in the state, dividing them into three tiers based on the level of service each provides and the types of residents each accommodates. To obtain and retain licensure, each community must undergo regular inspections. Certifications of nursing staff members are also verified. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Upper Marlboro

  • The weather in Upper Marlboro is mostly pleasant, with July high temperatures of 87 degrees and 206 days of sunshine each year. Winters can be cold and snowy. Upper Marlboro receives about 15 inches of snow each year, and January lows average 24 degrees. 
  • Upper Marlboro’s cost of living is slightly higher than the U.S. median, 114.4 compared to 100. Seniors on a budget may see their dollars stretch further here than other parts of the state. Health care is the lowest category of costs, 93, which can be important to many frail seniors. Housing, 102, and grocery, 107.2, are slightly higher than the national average. 
  • Maryland residents 60 and older who have an income of less than $100,000 per year (including income derived from Social Security, pensions and retirement accounts) are eligible for a state income tax break. The state doesn’t levy taxes on the first $50,000 of income derived for retirement accounts, and anything more is taxed at a lower rate than regular wage income.

  • The town has 132 physicians per 100,000 residents, compared to the national average of 210 per 100,000.
