What to Consider About Assisted Living in Williamsport

Just north of the Shenandoah Valley lies the charming town of Williamsport. It's close enough to Baltimore to keep day trips there convenient for its seniors. Williamsport may be small but 35.4 percent of the population is age 55 and over, so seniors are a major force in the city. Assisted living programs (ALPs) in Maryland are separated into three levels and are based on how much care a person needs. For seniors seeking assisted living facilities in the area, there are 46 available, with two located in Williamsport.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Williamsport

  • Williamsport has a lower cost of living (96.8) than typical elsewhere in the state or rest of the U.S. Seniors find healthcare rates comparable to the national average, and grocery prices are about the same.
  • Seniors need to be aware that the crime rate in Williamsport is very high. Violent crime in the city is double that of the state of Maryland and rates 39.4 higher than the national average. Property crime rates are nearly double averages of both the country and the state. 
  • The Williamsport climate is moderate, bordering on harsh. Seniors enjoy warm summers, but the winters can be bitter. Yet, even with around 24 inches of snowfall each year, the city still gets less than the national average.
  • The income tax rates in Williamsport can be high for seniors. While the sales tax rate is the same as the U.S. average at 6 percent, the income tax rate is a full 3 percent higher. Maryland does exempt some kinds of retirement income, such as Social Security, but the state taxes IRAs and 401(k)s. It's also one of the two U.S. states that have both an estate and an inheritance tax.
  • The Williamsport area is home to world-class medical facilities, such as Meritus Medical Center in Hagerstown, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors receive a discount on fares and passes for transportation from the Washington County Transit Department. The department provides fixed-route and paratransit services Monday through Saturday.
