Housing Options for Seniors

To determine what the best housing option is for your needs, review options for seniors, including: 

Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidies

The Department of Aging Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidy Program (SALGHS) provides monthly financial assistance to eligible County residents. For low and moderate income seniors, the program provides access to assisted living in small group homes which are licensed by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for four to 16 residents.

Accessible Homes for Seniors

The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) in partnership with the Maryland Department of Aging has undertaken a pilot project to promote accessibility-related improvements to the homes of seniors. These improvements may include, among others, the installation of grab bars and railings, widening of doorways and installation of ramps. For many older people, home improvements represent the key to remaining in their home and maintaining their independence.
