Support Programs

Individual Caregiver Consultations

If you are the family caregiver of a relative who is over age 60 and resides in Baltimore County, you can take advantage of a one-hour private consultation with a Baltimore County Department of Aging (BCDA) Caregiver Specialist who will review your caregiving situation and offer specific guidance and resource suggestions.

During the Caregiver Consultation, the Specialist will provide materials and information to help you provide good care for your older relative, while also taking better care of yourself. The consultation is designed to be an introduction to various programs and resources that could assist in maintaining your older relative at home in the community.

To arrange a Caregiver Consultation, complete an intake with the Caregivers Program by calling 410-887-4724. There is no charge for this service.

Local 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 specific to a certain disease or condition. For more information, contact the group you are interested in.

Center Connection

The Center Connection Program is designed for individuals who need supportive services to participate in Senior Center programs, but do not need physical assistance or close supervision.
