Commission on Aging Seeks Public Input to Enhance Community for Older Adults

Calvert County Maryland

The Calvert County Commission on Aging and Department of Community Resources, Office on Aging (OOA), is seeking feedback from residents for ways to enhance the quality of life in Calvert County for older adults. Public input will be used in plans to make Calvert County more “age friendly” for the county’s growing older adult population while also guiding our plans to improve aging services for the next four years.

Residents are invited to complete an online survey, which is available at

Residents are also invited to participate in upcoming Age-Friendly Community Focus Group meetings being held throughout late May and early June:

Calvert Pines Senior Center (450 W. Dares Beach Road, Prince Frederick)

  • Thursday, June 1, 5-7 p.m.

North Beach Senior Center (9010 Chesapeake Ave, North Beach)

  • Wednesday, May 17, 5-7 p.m.
  • Friday, May 19, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

Southern Pines Senior Center (20 Appeal Lane, Lusby)

  • Tuesday, May 23, 5-7 p.m.
  • Monday, June 5, 9:30-11:30 a.m.

The Age-Friendly Community initiative is working to enhance housing, public transportation, health services and other programs that will enable older adults to continue living in their own home if they choose, with the resources and support needed to maintain a high quality of life.

More than 22,000 adults age 60 and older currently live in Calvert County, which makes up nearly a quarter of the county’s total population. This number is projected to increase by over 30% in the next 25 years. 

The Calvert County Commission on Aging provides input to the county’s comprehensive planning process, as well as planning for town centers, housing, transportation, senior centers, libraries and other public services and infrastructure to meet the needs of the county’s senior population. Commission members also serve as representatives with other organizations such as the Tri-County Council, Maryland AARP, National Active and Retired Federal Employees, United Seniors of Maryland and others to improve seniors’ lives.
