Community for Life

Maryland Community for Life is an innovative program developed by the Maryland Department of Aging to support older adults as they age at home. The Community for Life program provides grants to non-profits that commit to deliver a package of services that make it comfortable and convenient to age at home to Marylanders over the age of 60.​ The program’s services are designed to prevent the predictable challenges of aging that can require admittance into a high level of care facility, such as a nursing home or assisted living facility.
