Baltimore is the largest city in Maryland and a major seaport on the Chesapeake Bay. The city boasts a population of nearly 570,000 (as of 2022), and 14.1 percent of its residents are aged 65 or older.1 Not all older adults require daily help, but roughly 70 percent of seniors will require facility care or assisted living at some point. Fortunately, there are dozens of assisted living facilities in Baltimore and the surrounding suburbs to accommodate those who need support. We’ve researched the available options and compiled a list of the best assisted living communities in Baltimore. Read on to learn more about what the top communities in the area have to offer!

Our Methodology: How We Chose the Best Assisted Living in Baltimore

To better understand how we chose the assisted living communities in this guide, check out some of the most important criteria we consider:

  • Cost: The cost of assisted living is very important. We look at the cost of room and board and different levels of care. We prioritize communities that offer the best value but not necessarily the cheapest options.
  • Available care: Many communities in Baltimore and other cities offer multiple lifestyle and care options. Independent living, assisted living, and memory care are some of the most common offerings. Some communities may also offer respite care for caregivers, outpatient rehab, and even hospice care. We focus on communities offering more than one.
  • Reviews: We comb through hundreds of reviews to get an idea of people’s actual experiences. We can’t provide all the information we see, but we try to give an overview of what residents, family members, and staff have to say.
  • Amenities: Amenities can cover various services and features, from game rooms and swimming pools to art classes and weekly group excursions. We prioritize quality over quantity, but many of Baltimore’s best assisted living communities offer dozens of high-quality amenities.
  • Location: Location can have a big impact on residents’ overall experience. Certain locations may be easier to access for friends and family, while others may give residents a safe and fun neighborhood to explore. Everyone has unique preferences, but we try to focus on convenient and engaging locations.
  • Staff size: We focus on assisted living communities that offer high staff-to-resident ratios, often with a maximum of eight residents per caregiver.
