    Washington County, Maryland, has a relatively large population of 150,578 people, just 16.8 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 years and older. Within that senior population, 10.6 percent are people with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

    In Washington County and throughout the rest of Maryland, memory care facilities are called Assisted Living Programs (ALPs). They are licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Washington County residents with dementia can choose from among the region’s five ALPs.

    • Seniors in Washington County can take advantage of tax breaks to maximize their retirement wealth. Maryland does not tax social security income, and only partially-taxes retirement accounts and public pension incomes. Private pensions, however, are subject to the normal tax rate. Certain beneficiaries, such as spouses and children, are not charged taxes on inheritances.
    • Washington County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Washington County Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

The median home cost is also lower at $183,400 compared to the median state cost of $282,000 and the median US cost of $216,200. Groceries make up the most expensive spending sector, at 3.8 points above what the rest of the country pays on average.  
    • Washington County gets plenty of sun, with an annual average of 197 sunny days. This is just slightly less than the national average of 205 days.
