Department of Aging Overview

The No Senior Eats Alone Day Living Connected logo.

The Department of Aging is inviting everyone to participate in No Senior Eats Alone Day on Thursday, September 12, or any day of their choosing during the week of September 9 through 15. The goal is to help make older adults feel valued and connected, establish better eating habits and improve nutrition and health. We also encourage partners to join us in drawing attention to the impact of social isolation.

 

Age-Friendly Baltimore County 

County Executive Johnny Olszewski and the Department of Aging are embarking upon a new and exciting initiative that will make our County age-friendly. The goal of this initiative is to improve the quality of life for all County residents, regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnic or cultural backgrounds. How will we accomplish this undertaking? With your help. Learn more about what age-friendly means and how you can get involved.

Social Isolation Initiative

Did you know that lacking social connections is a comparable risk factor for early death as smoking 15 cigarettes a day? The Department of Aging is tackling this issue with a series of events, trainings and promotions. Check out our video on the topic and stay tuned for information on other ways you can participate in reducing the rate of social isolation in our senior population.
