In-Home Services

Community Outreach Services

The Department of Aging provides free casework services to adults, age 60 and over, to help them remain in their own homes in the community with the best quality of life. The Community Outreach Specialist will evaluate a senior's health and living situation, financial resources, family and community supports. When appropriate, they can assist a senior in applying for such benefits as:

  • Energy assistance
  • Food stamps
  • Medical Assistance
  • Pharmacy assistance
  • Housing subsidies

The Community Outreach Specialists also connect seniors to available services to help them remain independent in their homes. Some examples of these services are:

  • Home-delivered meals
  • In-home care
  • Adult day programs
  • Transportation
  • Senior housing
  • Health care and medical supplies
  • Emergency assistance

Community Outreach Specialists are assigned to every region of Baltimore County. They can assist older adults, their families and caregivers at all 20 Baltimore County senior centers to determine eligibility for various programs and services. For those unable to come out to senior centers, home visits are available.

For additional information, contact Maryland Access Point (MAP) of Baltimore County at 410-887-2594, or email MAP at aginginfo@baltimorecountymd.gov.
