2022 Top Maryland Senior Living Communities

The Old Line State is one of the oldest in the union, and the range of senior living facilities makes Maryland an excellent place to transition into an elder living community. If you’ve already embarked on a search for a Maryland senior provider you understand the options can seem endless. How do you go about comparing one community to another? What are the key questions you should be asking? How much is an average senior provider in Maryland?

These are critical questions, and beginning the search can feel overwhelming. This is why we’ve put together a list of the highest-rated, 15 communities in Maryland. It’s a large state, so if you don’t find your city or town represented in this list, please consult our senior living directory. In conjunction, an assisted living consultant is available at your convenience, to guide you in this important life step.

Location Matters When Selecting a Maryland Senior Living Community
Real estate agents talk about location, location, location. This is for good reason – location really matters. Making a transition to an elderly housing facility that is not in close proximity to hospitals, a senior’s primary care provider, and similar specialists can be challenging should an emergency arise. Additionally, ensuring that the facility has adequate transportation services is also highly recommended. If you or your loved one will be needing to leave the facility frequently, being strategically located to the required services should be top of mind. 

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in Maryland

Ranking anything requires lots of analysis. There are a range of variables to consider and senior living communities are no different. To arrive at our list of the top 15 providers, our team complied the user reviews left on our site and then compared those with those left on Google and Facebook. We then consulted the Maryland Department of Health and ranked the centers on a scale of 1 to 5. Those with outstanding violations or citations were subsequently removed.  

The average price for a Maryland senior living facility is $4,200 per month. Those facilities with highly-trained specialists that offer memory care among other services can reach $6,000 monthly. The living type can also influence the monthly rate, so it is good to inquire ahead of time to determine the care and services needed.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Noble Senior Living at Baltimore:

It was a very nice, well-kept, reasonably priced facility. The gentleman who helped us out was very nice too. The only problem for this particular elderly couple is that it would be a little bit out of the way for them. The atmosphere was nice. They were very friendly.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Ring House:

My parents resided at the Ring House for 9 years. This was the best move for them. Living at the Ring House was like living on a Cruise Ship. 2 meals per day served to you in a proper dining room. The staff became like family. The daily activities and social life was amazing. I was a very frequent visitor and the staff treated me like their family as well. Living at the Ring House gave my parents a wonderful place to live and certainly prolonged their life. Our family is forever grateful for the love and care the staff provided.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Lorien Encore:

This place is immaculate! Always clean and the staff are absolutely friendly. Every time my Grammy has had an issue she’s contacted Jack Hedges and he’s been there for us through thick and thin. To say he’s become like family is an understatement. He’s truly a hard worker and friendly face. You can tell the residents adore him as well as their families. He honestly knows how to get things done with a welcoming and warming manner! Thank you Jack for all you do for my Grammy and everyone else! You truly are spectacular!
