TOWSON, MD—In celebration of the 60th anniversary of Older Americans Month, the Baltimore County Department of Aging has announced the launch of its new YouTube channel. The channel features original content covering topics such as new program initiatives, recorded webinars and educational materials to assist older individuals in maximizing their health and well-being.
“This new channel offers a variety of content that will be a great benefit to Baltimore County’s aging population,” said Laura Riley, Director of Baltimore County’s Department of Aging. “Older adults can tune in anytime and improve their health with a virtual exercise class, navigate Medicare, find resources via the Caregiver Conference and more. We look forward to continually adding new opportunities to enrich the lives of older adults.”
The new page was designed to accommodate the growing number of older adults and caregivers who utilize technology on a regular basis. Videos include – but are not limited to – BCDA’s “Time of your Life” series, virtual fitness classes and Online Programs for Adult Learning (OPAL) Center lifestyle and health programming.
Led by the Administration for Community Living, Older Americans Month is dedicated to acknowledging the contributions and achievements of older Americans, highlighting important trends, and strengthening a commitment to honoring our older citizens. The 2023 theme is “Aging Unbound,” which offers an opportunity to explore diverse aging experiences and discuss how communities can combat stereotypes.
The mission of the Baltimore County Department of Aging is to strengthen lives by providing services, programs and connections to resources. For more information on the various programs provided by BCDA, visit https://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/Aging.
