Maryland Access Point (MAP)
Maryland Access Point (MAP) is a statewide resource for information and assistance about long-term services and supports, particularly for older
adults and individuals with disabilities. If you or someone you know need community services to avoid a nursing home stay or need help with shopping, chores or personal
assistance because of a disability, MAP is a gateway, guide and a single entry point to service providers in your local area.
For more information, access MAP’s wide resource of information and its user friendly website by clicking on this link or calling (410) 767-1100 for the nearest MAP site in your community.
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is conducting the IDEAL Study as a special project within the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging to learn more about healthy aging.
Participants in IDEAL are 80 and older, are in excellent health and are mentally sharp. This research will help scientists observe the aging process and identify the secrets
of aging well. Learn more about IDEAL and its parent study -- the Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging -- by clicking on the link below.
