  • Caring.com - Based on conversations with community leaders across the US, many aging adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help maintain their independence and quality of life.  So Caring.com created a free resource that provides information on topics like financial support and care options that are available in Waldorf.  What Caring.com is most excited about is their comprehensive database of senior living communities which also includes thoughtful and honest reviews from residents in the community.

  • The Pleural Mesothelioma Center - Pleural mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Due to the long latency period of mesothelioma, approximately 20-50 years, about 80% of those who are diagnosed with this terrible disease are seniors. Our organization works 1-on-1 with these individuals to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups, all for absolutely no cost to the patient.
