In 1965, the Board of County Commissioners conducted a survey of the needs of the older citizens throughout Frederick County. Based upon the results of this survey, the Board of County Commissioners established the Frederick County Commission on Aging in December 1965. In 2018 the Commission on Aging became the Senior Services Advisory Board. The purpose of the Board is to advise the County Executive and the Frederick County Senior Services Division on all matters relating to development and administration of the area plan and operations conducted hereunder, and to be advocates for issues relating to aging.
Senior Services Advisory Board meetings are open to the public. The meetings are held on the second Monday every other month at 1:00 p.m. Meetings will be streamed live to the Frederick County Boards and Commissions Facebook Page and to Frederick County's Boards and Commissions website. The public will be able to dial in toll-free and listen. Please refer to the meeting agendas for more details.
The Board is composed of 11 voting members, all residents and registered voters of Frederick County. There are also non-voting Ex-Officio members. Members serve staggered terms of 3 years. Current Members
