Health Care and other Resources

A society is judged by how well it cares for its most vulnerable.

Not all barriers to good health are medical. Appropriate housing, access to healthy food, transportation, affordable medications, emotional support, etc. all play a role. Harford County is proud to have a number of Care Coordination programs that help link residents to the programs and assistance they need to get well.

Support for Seniors

Healthy Harford WATCH program – As of June 30, 2020, the Healthy Harford WATCH Team will become part of the Care Transformation Teams (CTOs) within the UM Upper Chesapeake Health System. Instead of making home visits, Community Health Workers, Social Workers, and Nurses will instead be co-located in primary care physician offices and work in tandem with physicians to help vulnerable seniors achieve their best health outcomes. Care coordination will still include services such as:

  • transportation issues
  • difficulty taking medications correctly
  • safe housing
  • nutritious food
  • assistance with medical appointments

This program is offered free of charge.
