LOCAL AGENCIES ON AGING


[photo, Waxter Center for Senior Citizens, 1000 Cathedral St., Baltimore, Maryland] Each local governing body designates an agency on aging. The agency may be a unit of local government or a private, nonprofit corporation. In some counties, it is the office on aging. In others, it may be named differently. In Baltimore City, it is called the Commission on Aging and Retirement Education.

Departments provide a variety of adult services, incorporating assisted living; protective services; temporary disability programs. Transportation services for seniors and people with disabilities are also provided at the county level through either a division of the aging department, or by a separate transportation department.
