Information for Caregivers

Through a grant from the National Family Caregivers Support Program (NFCSP), the Caregivers Program serves family members caring for Baltimore County older adults, as well as grandparents with primary care responsibility for grandchildren.

The Baltimore County Department of Aging (BCDA) Caregivers Program offers a variety of services and resources to help family caregivers to provide good care for their relatives, while also taking care of themselves.

Free Quarterly Newsletter

Caregiver Connection is a free quarterly newsletter filled with practical information for family caregivers of older adults. Subscribe online to receive the electronic version of the newsletter.

Support Groups

Local Support Groups are an important resource for caregivers to talk with others about problems and solutions. Some support groups are general, and others are disease specific.

Community Resource Guide

An annual directory of services and resources for seniors and people with disabilities, the Community Resource Guide is available online at and in paper version at your local senior center and public library.

Education and Outreach

Outreach events are offered to the general public throughout Baltimore County in a variety of locations including senior centers, the work place, houses of worship, and area universities.
