Community Outreach Program

Baltimore County Department of Aging Community Outreach Services (COS) provides free casework services to adults, age 60 and over, to help seniors remain in their own homes in the community with the best quality of life. The COS caseworker evaluates a senior's health and living situation, financial resources, family, and community supports. When appropriate, the COS caseworker assists a senior in applying for benefits such as:

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

The COS caseworker connects eligible seniors to helpful services like:

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

COS caseworkers can assist older adults, their families and caregivers within all 20 Baltimore County senior centers to determine eligibility for various programs and services. When unable to get to senior centers, home visits are available.
