Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC)

Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC), known locally as Maryland Access Point (MAP), were established as the single entry point for individuals seeking long term support services. Maryland’s 20 local MAP sites provide individual, person centered counseling to consumers seeking information, referral and program support for long term services.

In most cases, the Area Agency on Aging is the lead organization in the MAP structure. MAP partners include local health and social services departments, Centers for Independent Living, behavioral health agencies, and other organizations through which people seek assistance.

The MAP program also provides an online, searchable resource directory to serve the public and professionals in identifying, connecting and accessing private and public resources: www. marylandaccesspoint.info. Individuals can use the website to directly find and contact service providers or they can find an appropriate agency in their local area to contact for counseling and assistance.
