Aging & Human Services

About Us

The Department of Aging & Human Services provides a wide variety of programs and services to the county's senior residents, as well as other segments of the population in need.

Our senior programs include, but are not limited to home and community-based services such as: home delivered and congregate meals, in-home services, ombudsman services, caregiver support, Senior Information & Assistance (I&A), social and recreational programs, health promotion, community outreach, and volunteer opportunities. The Human Services Division is responsible for the coordination of supportive services to families and children, Christmas Caring, Community Development, and non-profit agency monitoring.

The Aging and Disability Resource Center/Maryland Access Point (ADRC/MAP) is a free information and referral service that links the community to health and support services. It is open to the public and to individuals of all income levels. The St. Mary's County Department of Aging & Human Services is working to provide older adults, persons experiencing a disability and caregivers with a single point of entry for services and information.
