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 of each month at 1:00 p.m.
This presentation was given to the Frederick County Commission on Aging on April 10, 2017.
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.
The Senior Services Advisory Board is always interested in qualified advocates for seniors to serve on the board as vacancies occur. The County Executive appoints members. If you would like to apply to be a member, send a letter of interest, along with your resume to:
