Promoting healthy, independent living for Baltimore’s older residents
The Baltimore City Health Department’s Division of Aging is dedicated to improving the lives and well-being of Baltimore’s older adults. We coordinate services for older adults, adults with disabilities, and their families to maximize safety, health, and independence. We’re proud to advocate on their behalf when care providers fail to serve them, or when fraud is suspected. Through our volunteer programs and outreach initiatives, we approach aging with respectful, caring services that take into account each individual’s specialized needs.
Maryland Access Point is the “one-stop-shop” for information and assistance
