Annual Report to General Assembly.
The Interagency Committee on Aging Services began in 1982 (Chapters 101 and 330, Acts of 1982). For Maryland's elderly, the Committee plans coordination of State and local services covering employment, health, housing, social services, and transportation. Meeting quarterly, the Committee devises programs to assess the needs of elderly persons and their caregivers and provide services. The Committee also establishes a service system for frail or health-impaired elderly persons at risk of institutionalization (Code 1957, Art. 70B, secs. 4A through 4H).
