No matter how you fall...

The Nation’s First Seniors Emergency Center is Here for You At Holy Cross Hospital, we’ve created the first emergency center dedicated to patients age 65+. Designed by experts in seniors medicine, our innovative approach has become a national model. Here, physicians, nurses, pharmacists and social workers are specially trained in geriatric medicine. Our environment is quiet, private and calming. And after you go home, we follow up with a call to answer questions.

Dear Friends, Once again we are thrilled to introduce the annual Montgomery County Seniors’ Resource Guide. The 2013 Guide promises to connect you to the many and varied resources supporting healthy aging in our community. Becoming familiar with the resources available in our community before you need them is an investment in time that often pays rich dividends. You might begin by perusing the Table of Contents. Also, you’ll find on every page of this guide the phone number of our Aging and Disability Resource Unit: (240) 777-3000. Calling this number will connect you to County staff members able to help you respond to aging related needs that arise for yourself and your neighbors. We are grateful to the Beacon Newspapers for its partnership and commitment to public education.

Sincerely,

Isiah Leggett County Executive
