What are the advantages of a continuing
care retirement community that is a co-op?
Bay Woods of Annapolis is one of only two Maryland
continuing care retirement communities that is
a co-op. Our ownership structure is distinctive:
residents are cooperative owners of the property,
which is resident-owned and resident-run, with tax
advantages and equity ownership. Owners can pass
shares on to their heirs.
