The Talbot County Senior Care program is administered by the Talbot County Health Department through a partnership with the Maryland Department of Aging, the Talbot County Department of Social Services, and Talbot County. This program helps at need seniors stay in their homes for as long as possible, through resources they may not otherwise be able to access. The Talbot program currently supports an average of 135 Talbot County Seniors with some of these program services. The TCCOA and Maryland Access Point have joined with Talbot County’s Senior Care program initiative by organizing a supply drive to collect boxes of gloves, packs of incontinence briefs/underwear, packs of incontinence pads, disposable wipes and disposable underpads. The drive is scheduled to run through the spring season and the hope is for it to continue into the summer.

Please bring your donations to the following locations: Brookletts Place-Talbot Senior Center, Home Instead Senior Care, Mid-Atlantic Tire, Talbot County Health Department, YMCA St. Michaels, and Graul’s Market. Volunteers will collect the donated items and take them to the Talbot Health Department’s storage facility for distribution throughout Talbot County by the Department of Social Services, Health Department and Maryland Access Point.

If you have further questions about donating, please contact Kate Stinton at 410-819-5631 or kate.stinton@maryland.gov.
