About the Prince George’s Senior Provider Network Prince George's Senior Provider Network improves the care and quality of the lives of seniors by providing them with education and resources through collaboration with community agencies and organizations. PGSPN is comprised of organizations that are dedicated to providing services to seniors in Prince George's County. The group was birthed out of an overwhelming need to provide the senior population, their families and providers with resources that affect daily living. In 2002 First Baptist Church of Glenarden became the official site to host our monthly meetings. The planning committee decided to include speakers who are respected and qualified local professionals in the county to speak on timely and important topics that address issues in the senior community. This became an invaluable vehicle for networking opportunities between service providers, healthcare providers and senior care providers and thus… the Prince George’s Senior Provider Network grew. In 2008 we started hosting ‘Caregiver Symposiums’ for the senior community. The symposiums are designed to provide up to date resource information and address the needs of our seniors and their families. In partnership with the community our symposiums have grown each year. In 2010 a website and signage materials were created to represent our presence in Prince George’s County and provide ongoing information. We started the process to become a Non-Profit organization. Visit pgspn.org for more information.

Mission

Prince George’s County

Department Of Family Services Area Agency On Aging 301-265-8450 www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/aging The Area Agency on Aging’s mission is to plan services and programs to meet the needs of older adults and their families; provide education on the available options; and advocate for the rights and protection of older adults. This is accomplished through the delivery of quality services, successful partnerships, and community outreach. The Area Agency on Aging’s vision is to provide the highest quality of services which offers options, and promotes independence for older adults and their families.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS Maryland Access Point of Prince George’s County serves as a single point of entry into the long-term care system for older adults and person with disabilities. The MAP is a partnership effort with the local Health Department, Department of Social Services, Independence Now, Inc. and the Department of Family Services, Mental Health and Disabilities Administration. This collaboration facilitates a one-stop shop for older persons, persons with disabilities and their families. Family Caregiving Program provides assistance to caregivers; that includes family, friends, and members of the community, with access to support groups, problem solving, education, and respite care. The caregiver provides care to an older individual who may be losing their ability to live and care for themselves independently. Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP) provides free health insurance counseling and assistance to persons 55 years and older. Trained volunteer counselors provide information about Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, Long-Term Care Insurance, Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), claims, appeals, and about physician or hospital bills. Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) is a program designed to reduce the amount of federal and state funds lost due to health insurance fraud by increasing the public’s ability to detect and report possible fraud, waste, and abuse.

Home and Community Based Services Waiver Program for Older Adults enables older adults to remain in a community setting even though their advanced age or disability would warrant placement in a long-term care facility. The Waiver allows services that are typically covered by Medicaid only in a long term care facility to be provided to eligible persons in their own homes or in assisted living facilities. Money Follows the Person (MFP) is a demonstration project designed to streamline the transition process for individuals who chose to transition from a long-term care facility to a community setting. A community setting is defined by MFP as a resident’s own home, or an assisted living facility with four or less unrelated residents. The Area Agency on Aging will serve as the local single point of entry for applicants. Senior Nutrition Program provides older persons with a nutritionally sound and satisfying meal in strategically located congregate sites and/or in the seniors home. The program provides the framework and support for not only an American meal, but also a kosher meal program. Senior Assisted Living Group Home Subsidy Program combines housing with supportive services for seniors who need regular assistance with daily activities, but are not in need of nursing home placement. By offering congregate meals, housekeeping, personal services and 24-hour supervision, this program enables frail elders to continue living in the community. The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene license all homes. Homes that are enrolled in the Senior Assisted Living Group Subsidy Program that have subsidy residents are monitored quarterly by the Area Agency on Aging’s Program Monitor. Senior Care funds services for seniors who may be at risk of nursing home placement. Clients can access publicly funded services, or if they are not available, Senior Care will make arrangements with private vendors. These services can include personal care, chore, adult day care, financial help for medications, medical

supplies, respite care, home delivered meals, emergency response system, transportation, and others Senior Care is a gap-filling program for seniors 65 years of age and older who have limited income and assets. Long Term Care Ombudsman Program promotes the highest quality of life and care possible for residents in long term care facilities. The Ombudsman, with assistance of volunteers, investigates and seeks resolutions to problems, which affect residents' rights, health, care, safety and welfare. Public Guardianship Program ensures the provision of optimum care/services for adjudicated wards of the court, through professional case management. As an agent of the Circuit Court, case management decisions are made pertaining to medical care, living arrangement and overall personal welfare issues.

throughout the county. These children would otherwise be without the personal attention necessary for their social adjustment and maturation. Evidence-based Chronic Disease Self-Management is in partnership with Prince George's Community College to provide the “Living Well” Chronic Disease Self-Management Program to Older Adults in the County. This Program is a workshop given two and half hours, once a week, for six weeks, in community settings. People with different chronic health problems attend together. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with a chronic disease themselves. This program is especially helpful for people with chronic illness, as it gives them the skills to coordinate all the things needed to manage their health, as well as to help them keep active in their lives.

Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a subsidized employment program and training which provides part-time employment and training for low-income older adults and improves and expands community services where needed.

Health Promotion and Disease Prevention is a program designed to promote and educate the ideas and importance of a healthy lifestyle to senior citizens that attend Area Agency on Aging sponsored programs.

Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provides volunteer opportunities for over 400 seniors, age 55 and older. Volunteers serve in a variety of interesting and challenging assignments at over 50 non-profit organizations, schools and government agencies. In addition, RSVP offers such programs as friendly visiting, telephone reassurance, tutoring to school aged children, and provides supportive services to community and government agencies.

Telephone Reassurance Program recruits volunteers from the community, senior centers and other volunteer programs to place daily reassuring telephone calls to senior citizens within Prince George's County. The goal of the program is to eliminate some of the concerns facing senior citizens who live alone, thereby, assisting in remaining independent. The program provides the opportunity for senior citizens to connect by telephone with a friendly voice. This allows individuals to stay in contact with their community and to help decrease the feelings of loneliness and isolation. The Program also provides added peace of mind for relatives who live out of town. Foster Grandparent Program provides opportunities for older volunteers to work with physically, mentally and emotionally handicapped children in schools and special centers
