Dear Friends, I am honored to present the 2014 edition of the Montgomery County Seniors’ Resource Guide. By providing valuable resource information, this guide helps further the County’s goal of increasing the number of seniors who live full lives in the setting of their choice. The Seniors’ Resource Guide links residents to people in the community who can provide services such as: education on a wide range of health issues; transportation; recreation and volunteerism; and home care services, among many others. On each page, you are reminded to call Montgomery County Aging and Disability Services, (240) 777-3000, to connect with County staff eager to assist in dealing with any aging related needs that arise for yourself and your neighbors. This Guide is made possible through a partnership of Montgomery County government and the Beacon Newspapers. Together, we can ensure that older residents are aware of the programs and services vital to living well in our community

Sincerely,

Isiah Leggett County Executive
