Seniors are especially vulnerable to COVID-19, and the Maryland Department of Aging has several programs and resources to help those 65 and over through this time.
There are FAQ pages and videos set up to answer questions about the pandemic as well as a senior call check in.
Adults 65 and over can opt in to the free service to be called once a day at a regularly scheduled time to ensure the person being called is able to answer the phone. The call will also include a daily update on the COVID-19 pandemic. The check ins can help give peace of mind to loved ones who cannot check in themselves.
