Work to implement the “School of Aging Services Demonstration” continued in August that brought the leadership from the four participating community colleges (Community College of Baltimore County; Frederick Community College; Carroll Community College and Howard Community College together with representatives of several long term care business organizations in Maryland. The meeting launches a dialogue that lay the building blocks for the proposed new school.
The group took its first steps in putting the program in place as outlined in the “Five Phased Blueprint.”
Business discussants included:
- Salvatore (Sam) Albanese – Senior VP for Human Resources – Ingleside
- Jess Kagan – CEO – Sterling Health Care
- Daren Cortese – President at Brinton Woods
- Dawn Seek – CEO and President – Maryland National Capital Home Care Association

The next meeting of the Community College Working Group will meet with these business and education leaders on September 14 to lay out the types of training and/or credentialing required to meet the current and future service needs of the older adults.
