Seniors who reside in assisted living or continuing care communities in Maryland have legal rights that should always be respected. These rights are listed in the Health General Article under Section 19-343. They state that nursing homes will provide residents with care while respecting their dignity, and respect the residents’ individualities. By law, facilities cannot refuse these rights to a resident as they are protected.
