  • Senior Call Check Program: Maryland is the first state in the country to start a free, opt-in, telephonic service to check on Maryland’s older residents, all across the state. As many of our older adults take measures to avoid crowds and limit contact with others due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), please be reminded of the Senior Call Check program. This program is free to MD residents 65+ and is a daily call to verify your well-being, at a time scheduled at your convenience. Register today or tell a loved one about this program! For more information, call 1-866-50-CHECK.
  • Information from the CDC for long-term care facilities is available here.
