MAP is committed to encouraging independence and personal choice, according to a spokesperson. It assists residents by creating a single point of entry to access resources for lifelong independence.
“MAP envisions a Maryland in which aging adults and adults with disabilities receive consolidated quality care that is efficient and effective in supporting full quality of life,” the spokesperson said.
MAP, administered by Community Action’s Area Agency on Aging, serves aging adults and adults with disabilities of all income levels who are in need of assistance. Family members and caregivers trying to support a grandparent, spouse, or adult child may also receive information and assistance.
The MAP office is located in the AAA administrative offices at 104 E. Center Street, Oakland. Partners include Resources for Independence, Social Services, the Garrett County Health Department, and CORE services.
The launch marks the official implementation of Maryland Access Point in Garrett County. Persons who would like more information on MAP or other services may contact Allison Layton, MAP manager, at 301-533-9000. Persons may also go to the web site at www.marylandaccesspoint.info.
