Chesapeake Cove is an assisted living facility located on the picturesque Chesapeake Bay. We offer residents the best lifestyle choice of all: the one they make themselves. Residents can choose to experience everything or relax and move at a slower pace. At Chesapeake Cove each resident controls how they spend their time.

Choosing an Assisted Living Facility
When selecting an assisted living facility for yourself or a loved one, there are many things to consider. We hope this list helps you when determining whether or not an assisted living community meets your needs.
- Is the facility locally owned or a franchise?
- Is the facility licensed by the state?
- How far away is emergency medical care?
- Does the location offer transportation services?
- What kinds of activities are available to residents?
- To what degree can you decorate your suite?
- What are the terms of the lease?
- Will this feel like “home” over time?
A majority of our 28 suites are meant for individual residences, but a handful can accommodate a couple or two roommates. All suite options include water views, local phone service, internet service, and basic cable television service. Long distance phone options and premium cable channels are available at an additional service charge.
We offer seven floor plans ranging in size from 246 square feet to 473 square feet. All suites include a kitchenette with a mini-refrigerator, a sitting room area, a bedroom, and a bathroom. Meals, activity programs, and laundry services are all included in the cost of the suite.
Our suites are warm and inviting, and ready for residents to make themselves at home. We provide most of what a resident needs and we are in compliance with COMAR Regulations. This means that unless a resident supplies personal furnishings (must be brand new, directly from the store), or as otherwise specified in the resident agreement, the assisted living program shall provide the following to each resident:
- A permanent bed at least 35 inches wide, in good repair, and include a clean, comfortable mattress sized to fit the bedframe and at least two clean and comfortable pillows
- A bedside stand with a drawer
- A comfortable chair
- At least two dresser drawers in a chest of drawers
- A bedside or over-the-bed lamp
- A sufficient supply of bath and bed linens
We also provide an apartment-size refrigerator, flat screen TV, internet and local phone service. Residents are welcome to bring a microwave, however snacks are available 24/7.
Suites are priced on two criteria: the size of the suite and the level of care required for the resident. Monthly suite rates range from $3,230 (smallest floor plan/ least care) to $5,465 (largest floor plan/ most care). Most residents will find their monthly rent will fall between $3,200 - $4,600 a month.
Residents receive medication assistance, monitoring and ongoing nurse assessments.
Residents receive all Level 1 care plus Activities of Daily Living (ADL) assistance and ambulation assistance.
Residents receive all Level 1 and 2 care plus direct ADL support, increased monitoring, and social monitoring.
