Not Your Ordinary Facility

Independent Living residents maintain their own life, their own friends, and their own hobbies — but, when necessary, receive our help and support. For many, day-to-day life here feels just like living at home.

  • “Mom is all alone in that big house.”. 
  • “Uncle Oscar does not need nursing care, but he does forget to eat sometimes.”
  • “Aunt Grace is self-sufficient, but some days her arthritis is painful.” 
  • “Dad is 92 and in good health, but we’re worried something could happen.”

Does this sound familiar? If so, you are not alone. Independent Living is a solution to a common problem: your loved one is unable to live at home, but does not require full nursing care. At Bel Air Assisted Living, we cater to many healthy seniors in this situation by tailoring à la carte Assisted Living, Respite Stay, or Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care services — prescribing as much, or as little, care as is necessary. We call it “Independent Living.”

Our Program

If your relative would benefit from a new home that’s both independent and safe, please schedule a free, no-obligations tour of our facility. We would enjoy meeting you, and showing how we can help:

Our philosophy is simple: Independent Living should be independent. Upon moving to Bel Air Assisted Living, new residents are encouraged to bring all of their memorable possessions and keepsakes. Previous residents have decorated their private suite with favorite family photos, rocking chairs, and World War II mementos. Once settled in, each resident is free to do as they wish: come and go from the facility, maintain relationships, or participate in off-campus activities and clubs. We do our best to ensure that nothing changes for Independent Living residents, except for knowing that our staff is available to help when needed. It is “aging in place” at its finest: growing old in the Harford County, Greater Baltimore, Maryland community where most of our residents have spent their whole lives.

Best of all, Independent Living residents enjoy our state-of-the-art, luxury care facility. No matter how sophisticated your loved one’s standards may be, we can exceed them. With our facility comes all of the perks: a personal chef who prepares three meals a day, individualized laundry, dry cleaning, manicures, and private bathrooms — just to name a few.

Additionally, daily social activities are available to Independent Living residents, and there is a vibrant social life on campus.

Transitioning to Independent Living can bring significant stress reduction — for senior citizens and families. Once enrolled, everyone will breathe a sign of relief. Our staff is monitoring your loved one now: they are eating, taking medications, socially active, and safe. Perhaps a story will best illustrate this. Recently, a new Independent Living resident was asked how her move-in transition was progressing.

She replied, “I love living with friends… [it feels like] I’m on vacation every day!” Her comment touched our staff, and reminded us why we love our jobs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our caregivers and medical team are up to date with all CDC and Maryland Department of Health rules and guidelines. We prioritize health and safety, and are happy to answer any questions about our protocols.
Twice a year, the assisted living manager and delegating nurse lead a full review of each resident’s personalized service plan. Our entire medical staff participates in the review. Additionally, if at any time the resident’s mental, physical, emotional, or social needs change, the personalized service plan may be placed under voluntary review. For example, a service plan review typically occurs after hospitalization or when a new diagnosis is delivered. Whenever the personalized service plan is updated, our entire staff is briefed on the change and trained to accommodate it.
Home health agencies are hired to meet specific needs including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wound care, hospice care, podiatry services, mobile x-ray services, and lab work. In addition, our registered nurse and house doctor are on call 24 hours a day. For a full list of amenities, please see our Amenities page.
