How can we help you?

"Being a part of the Answers for the Aging program is most rewarding, as it allows me to connect with a diversity of people.  As callers share their needs, they expect and receive the guidance they are calling for as choices and options are shared.  Many callers voice their appreciation for the help but, for me, the real pleasure is in talking with them and in knowing that I can be of service."

Program Coordinator

The Maryland Consumer Guide to Long Term Care - The guide is for consumers searching for a specific type of care (adult day center, home health, hospice, or nursing home care). The Guide includes comprehensive information about each Maryland licensed long term care facility: such as specific services offered, quality ratings, satisfaction with care (for nursing homes and home health specifically), dates and summaries of OHCQ health and safety inspections, and characteristics of residential facilities (with pictures) size, specialty certification, and other information. Users can go to the “services search” section of the Consumer Guide to select any or all counties in Maryland and then view a list of the LTC services in the county. The guide also has information about planning and paying for long term care.
