The Caregiver's Toolkit


A Guide to Senior Services in Harford County


As our population of mature adults continues to grow, the many resources available to support their interests and needs continue to expand as well. In addition, it is critical to support the needs of those who step into the vital role of care giving. Balancing career, children, marriage, and everyday life along with meeting the needs of older loved ones is the reality for most caregivers. This publication was designed to provide seniors, their loved ones, and caregivers with the most comprehensive and current information as to the services and programs available across our community.

Harford Caregiver's - My Checklist
As our population of mature adults continues to grow, the many resources available to support their interests and needs continue to expand as well. In addition, it is critical to support the needs of those who step into the vital role of care giving. Many of us don't like to think about gathering all of our important documents in one place. It is easy to put it off until tomorrow or to assume that our loved ones will know "where everything is" should the time come. No one can predict when an emergency situation might occur, and if unprepared, a person or family may face a much greater burden and expense in resolving legal affairs. This checklist includes a comprehensive list of important documents and information related to every aspect of your life. Completing this will help you to ensure that you have planned effectively to keep track of your legal affairs, preserve your wishes, and allow you to plan ahead for life's unforeseen events. Being prepared is a gift of peace of mind for yourself and for those who care about you!
