Department of Aging and Human Services - Home and Community - Based Services

As the number of older adults in the county increases, more and more individuals and families must face the challenge of caring for older persons whose ability to provide for their own care and needs has declined. A primary goal of the department is to help these individuals and families find the means of remaining as independent as possible within their own homes and communities. To respond to this goal, services are made available to eligible persons in their home or nearby community facilities and eliminate or minimize the need for services in more costly health care institutions.

The services offered through the Home and Community-Based Services Division (HCBS) include:

Aging & Disability Resource Center/Maryland Access Point (MAP)
Caregiver Support/Respite
Medicaid Waiver for Older Adults (Community First Choice)
Options Counseling
Senior Care Program
Senior Rights & Advocacy/Ombudsman
