From Harford County government:
On Tuesday, July 31 the Harford County Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) held an event at the Liriodendron celebrating the union between the aging and disability communities. Those in attendance were Maryland Department of Aging Secretary Gloria Lawlah, Harford County Executive David R. Craig, and Department of Community Services Director Elizabeth Hendrix, along with representatives from The IMAGE Center, Harford County Health Department, and Department of Social Services.
“My administration works to cultivate life enhancing amenities that safeguard what is important to Harford County citizens,” stated County Executive David R. Craig. “We are proud to be one of the ten counties in the state offering an Aging and Disability Resource Center, which will work as a valuable resource for county consumers, their families and caregivers, and service staff,” Craig remarked.
Established as a “one stop connection,” the Harford County ADRC is a single point of entry for the community to obtain resources, referrals, planning of short and long term care, accessing financial and eligibility processes for local, state, and federal programs, and education awareness of services within the community. The ADRC serves persons 60 years and older, persons 18 years and older with disabilities and chronic conditions, families and/or caregivers, and persons of all income levels.
The Harford County ADRC is a partner of Maryland Access Point (MAP), part of the national Aging and Disability Resource Center initiative supported by the U.S. Administration on Aging and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. For more information on MAP visit www.marylandaccesspoint.info.
