Baltimore County Department Of Aging Unveils "Digital Senior Center" YouTube Channel
BALTIMORE COUNTY - In recognition of the 60th Older Americans Month, the Baltimore County Department of Aging (BCDA) has announced a novel initiative with the launch of a dedicated YouTube channel.
Aimed at older adults, the channel will provide a range of original, on-demand content such as educational webinars, fitness classes, and resources focused on health and well-being. The "Digital Senior Center" is set to offer a wealth of information, including new program initiatives, health management resources, and helpful guides such as navigating Medicare.
Laura Riley, Director of Baltimore County's Department of Aging, has expressed optimism about the potential of this channel to help older residents navigate complex government systems.
"Our goal is to provide a plethora of resources and opportunities to enhance the lives of older adults," Riley said. "With this platform, they can conveniently access useful content anytime, such as virtual exercise classes or resources via the Caregiver Conference."
In response to the increasing number of senior citizens and caregivers who regularly employ technology, the BCDA has included a diverse set of videos on its new channel. The content ranges from the BCDA's "Time of your Life" series to Online Programs for Adult Learning (OPAL) Center lifestyle and health programming.
This year's Older Americans Month, led by the Administration for Community Living, is themed "Aging Unbound." The occasion serves to celebrate the diverse experiences of aging, discuss ways to challenge stereotypes and affirm our commitment to honoring senior citizens.
