In Maryland's twenty-three counties and Baltimore City, 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 Division of Aging and Care Services.
Local agencies on aging provide a variety of adult services, incorporating assisted living; protective services; and temporary disability programs. Transportation services for seniors and people with disabilities also are provided at the county level through either a division of the aging department, or by a separate transportation department.
