The Baltimore County Provider Council is a membership organization composed of individuals representing for-profit and non-profit businesses, and government organizations that serve the senior population in and around Baltimore County. We are an independent, charitable non-profit created to foster education, communication and cooperation among care providers, geriatric professionals and others interested in the needs of older adults.
Informational events are scheduled from October through April in the auditorium at Broadmead Retirement Community, 13801 York Road, Cockeysville, MD 21030. These seminars provide information on available services, share relevant data and forums for discussion about common problems and help educate professional care providers.
In addition, our regular meetings and luncheons provide members with the opportunity to network with their colleagues and learn from each other. Open networking time is available before each educational session and attendees are encouraged to bring lots of business cards to share. To learn how to join, click here.
Members are also invited to join one of the following committees to help shape the future of the council: program planning committee, membership committee, scholarship committee, or website committee. Individuals who have completed one year of membership are also eligible to apply for a position on our Board. Elections for Board vacancies are held each year. For more information, see our By-laws.
The Baltimore County Provider Council recognizes the importance of encouraging college students to pursue careers that support the ever growing senior population. In the past, scholarships were limited to those doing hands on care in long term care settings. We have recently expanded our reach to anyone pursuing an Associates or Bachelors degree in a field that will enhance the lives of senior citizens. A total of $3,000 in scholarships will be awarded annually (up to three recipients) paid directly to the school to provide reimbursement for tuition/program fees including registration fees, activity fees and text books.
