Smyrna, Delaware might be worth a look. It has many smaller older homes for good prices some rural and others within the town. They have newer medical facilities that are affiliated with hospitals within the state and include emergency care. Bayhealth has a hospital in nearby Dover. You would be less than an hour south from Christiana Hospital, which many believe is the cat's meow. Smyrna has a small amount of shopping, but just a few miles south you'll find everything you need in Dover.

There are many small towns on Maryland's Eastern Shore. If you want to stay north to be nearer Christiana Hospital in Delaware, you can look at small towns such as Cecilton or Galena. Both of these are within short driving distance to Elkton, MD and Middletown, DE for amenities. If you live in northern Maryland, you could hop on I-95 and head over to Annapolis or Baltimore hospitals, but that would be a little bit of a drive. Most would go to Christiana, but Elkton has a small hospital too.

A bit further south is Chestertown. They have a small community hospital that is now affiliated with the University of Maryland. They have different specialists visit the hospital on certain days. If you go a little west of Chestertown, you'll find small towns such as Worton with reasonable homes. There are also towns on the Bay further west and south of Chestertown such as Betterton and Rock Hall, but you are getting further away from amenities found in Chestertown. The Eastern Shore is dotted with small towns, many of which are simply at crossroads. If you're not used to living farther out, these smaller towns may not be good places for you to retire. You can also head further south to the Easton area, which also has a hospital, but is a little more expensive overall than the places I've mentioned.

It's all according to how far you are willing to travel and what you are willing to compromise on. You'll find vets and churches within reasonable driving distance of all mentioned towns. All have areas of housing within your budget.
