Senior Assisted Group Home Subsidy
Towson, Maryland (June 20, 2013) – For low and moderate income seniors, the Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidy program provides access to assisted living in small homes licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for four to 15 residents. The Assisted Living subsidies are paid from State funds on behalf of eligible residents who are unable to afford the cost of assisted living and might otherwise be in nursing facilities.
The subsidy supports the cost of services provided in assisted living, including meals, personal care and 24-hour supervision for elderly residents who are frail and unable to live independently. In accordance with an inter-agency agreement with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the homes are monitored by the Department of Aging through area agencies on aging around the state.
Currently, the Baltimore County Department of Aging is accepting resident applications. For additional information, call 410-887-4632.
