Alternate Living Options

Many seniors and people with disabilities want to stay in their home for as long as possible - but need some physical changes to make it safer, more comfortable, and more livable. Others prefer living in a group setting, where companionship and planned activities are available or where support services may be easier to obtain.

You might be surprised at the variety and number of living options available!
Some housing options just provide a place to live; other arrangements provide a partial or full range of services that can be used as an individual’s needs and ability to function independently change. Alternative living options in Maryland are: Assisted Living, Congregate Housing, Adult Family Care Homes, and Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC). Nursing homes provide care to people who need extensive nursing care or 24-hour supervision for a long period of time or short-term nursing care for rehabilitation after a hospital stay or illness.

Clicking on each of the underlined options will take you to the information this web site displays for each option.
