What to Consider About Assisted Living in Westminster

The City of Westminster is a suburb of Baltimore located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's home to around 18,500 people, and just over 14 percent of the population is aged 65 and older. Seniors in the city can find accommodation in one of the area's 21 assisted living facilities, which are overseen by the Maryland Department of Health, Assisted Living Unit.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Westminster

  • The Westminster area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Carroll Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Carroll Transit System offers public transport services to Westminster. Seniors aged 65 and older are eligible for discounted fares. Seniors may also be able to access the shared-ride, door-to-door paratransit service; however, availability is limited.
  • Westminster has warm summers and cold winters. The average high temperature in July is 88 degrees, and in January the low averages 22. The city gets an average of 204 days of sunshine each year, one less than the national average, affording seniors plenty of chances to enjoy spending time outdoors.
  • Westminster has an overall crime rate of 39 crimes per 1,000 residents, which is higher than 91 percent of Maryland's other towns and cities. The property crime rate of 32.16 is 10 points higher and the violent crime rate of 6.88 is almost two points higher than the Maryland rate. Safety-conscious seniors may wish to discuss security precautions with staff when they tour facilities.
  • The overall cost of living in Westminster is 121 on the Sperling index. This is 21 points higher than the national average of 100 and is mainly impacted by the cost of housing. Everyday expenses like groceries and healthcare are rated lower than the national median, which may help the budget of seniors on a fixed income. 
  • Income from non-public pensions and retirement accounts are subject to state income tax in Maryland, although a deduction is available for taxpayers aged 65 and older. Income from public pensions and Social Security is exempt from income tax, which may help Westminster seniors save money for assisted living.
