HeartFields at Bowie was a clean, older place. When you walk in the front door, you're there where anyone's sitting, either asleep or whatever they're doing. You walk into that right off the bat. The bedrooms were very nice-looking and different sizes, which is good for people. There have been complaints from people th...Read more HeartFields at Bowie reviews
HeartFields at Bowie was OK, and the atmosphere was good. The staff told me about their activities and were very helpful. They had large- and medium-sized rooms that were all wonderful, clean, and comfortable. The dining area was beautiful and well designed.Read more HeartFields at Bowie reviews
HeartFields at Bowie is good. It's one of the nicer places we visited. The layout is fine and fairly spacious. The staff members are nice. The facilities are not as nice as some of the others. It is also on the smaller side. They did look like they have a decent selection of at least two choices of food. They also have...Read more HeartFields at Bowie reviews
I visited Brookdale Woodward Estates, but they did not have the type of care I was looking for. The staff was OK, informative, and took me on the tour. The grounds and the facility were clean, but it was a bit far out from me. Some rooms have a little kitchenette and bedroom.Read more Brookdale Woodward Estates reviews
Brookdale was a very nice place. Their rooms impressed us. The staff was nice. What shied us away from Brookdale is that they would not give us a set price on care. They would not even give us a ballpark of what the care was going to cost. I'm not willing to go in there without at least some idea of how much it is goin...Read more Brookdale Woodward Estates reviews
According to the Genworth 2018 Cost of Care study, the average monthly cost of assisted living in Prince George’s County is $5,235, which is substantially higher than both the national average ($4,000) and the state average ($4,673). When compared to larger cities such as Baltimore, which is Maryland’s capital, the average cost of assisted living is nearly $1,000 higher in Prince George’s County, and when compared to Cumberland, one of the state’s smaller cities, the price is more than $1,500 higher each month.
Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
The type of care needed is usually the biggest factor in determining the average monthly cost of senior care. In Prince George’s County, this is evident when comparing the cost of assisted living to the cost of nursing home care, which is more than $2,000 higher. While assisted living is more expensive than home care services by several hundred dollars, it’s important to keep in mind the added costs that are involved with continuing to live at home, such as rent, utilities and general upkeep, all of which are usually included in the cost of assisted living.

In Maryland, the Medicaid system is officially referred to as Medical Assistance (MA). MA provides financial assistance, as well as supportive services and necessary medical equipment and prescription medications to low-income residents throughout Maryland. In addition to seniors, MA’s various programs serve ill and disabled individuals and provides temporary assistance to those who are injured or pregnant when required.
There are several programs and waivers that operate as a part of MA and provide seniors with financial and medical support while living in a licensed assisted living facility or nursing home or while receiving home-based care. While waiver eligibility requirements vary slightly, all programs and waivers require that seniors do not have an income that exceeds $2,250 per month, and they may not have assets that are valued at more than $2,500, with the exception of their home and household belongings, which may not exceed a value of $572,000.
To learn more about any of the state’s Medicaid programs or waivers or to apply, seniors can contact (844) 627-5465.
Community Personal Assistance Services
MA covers the cost of nursing home care and assisted living for low-income seniors under its Community Personal Assistance Services program. In order to receive benefits under this program, seniors must require daily caregiver assistance with at least one activity of daily living. Participants of this program are regularly monitored by a registered nurse.
Community First Choice Program
Another program that operates as a subsection of MA is the Community First Choice Program, which provides seniors with access to personal assistance services, meals and nonemergency transportation. The program requires that seniors submit to a full medical assessment and be determined to need an institutional level of care.
Community Options Waiver
The Community Options Waiver is available to seniors who reside in an approved nursing or assisted living facility exclusively and provides services such as medical day care, personal assistance, nursing care and supports planning. Applicants are required to submit to a full medical assessment and be determined to require a nursing level of care.
Increased Community Services Waiver
The Increased Community Services Waiver was created to allow seniors who reside in a nursing home to move back into the community or into an assisted living facility by providing nursing support and other tools that allow the senior to live more independently. In order to be eligible for this program, seniors must be residing in a nursing home and be able to safely move back into a community while receiving a lower level of care.
Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidy
Seniors in Prince George’s County and throughout Maryland can access assisted living services in small group home settings via the Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidy. Group homes under this program must be licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and house between four and 16 residents. Seniors participating in this program receive subsidized rates for all services provided in their assisted living home, including meals.
To be eligible for this program, seniors must be at least 62 years of age and living in or approved for residence in a licensed facility. They must also be financially eligible, which means they may not have an income higher than 60 percent of the state median, and individuals may not own assets valued at more than $11,000. The amount of the subsidy is determined by the applicant’s income up to a maximum of $650 per month.
Seniors can learn more about this subsidy and the application process by contacting (877) 402-8218.
Optional State Supplement
Seniors who receive federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can apply for additional support via Maryland’s Optional State Supplement (OSS). The OSS benefit is designed to help low-income seniors pay for the cost of room and board while living in a long-term care facility. The amount of the benefit is determined by the senior’s living arrangements, but for those in assisted living, a maximum cash benefit of $184 per month is available. To be eligible to receive the OSS, seniors must receive monthly SSI benefits and may not possess assets valued at more than $2,000.
To apply for the OSS, seniors can contact the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213.
Long Term Care Insurance
Long-term care insurance can help seniors to pay for the cost of assisted living or nursing care in the event that their policy was purchased before the need for long-term care existed. While eligibility requirements and policy terms do vary between providers, insurance providers don’t generally provide policies to those who already require institutionalization.
The cost of long-term care insurance varies depending on a number of factors including the provider, the plan and the policyholder’s age and health history.
Elderlife Bridge Loan
Seniors who are unable to receive government financial aid may be eligible for an Elderlife bridge loan. These loans cover the cost of assisted living or nursing care and are paid directly to the senior’s residence. Seniors can repay the loans in monthly installments over a flexible term and at low interest rates.
Those who may be unable to qualify for a loan are permitted to include up to six co-applicants on their application, which can help to increase the chances of approval and reduce monthly payments substantially.
Senior citizen centers in Prince George’s County are open to residents of the area age 55 and older.
