Our mission is to foster communication, cooperation and education among the providers of geriatric services so that we can work towards a common goal of enhancing the quality of life for older adults.
The Coalition of Geriatric Services (COGS) is a non-profit organization of public agencies, private companies and individuals who provide services to older adults. COGS was established in Howard County in 1991 and currently has over 200 individuals representing over 100 organizations from the Baltimore/Washington area. A volunteer board of directors and a variety of committees plan program meetings, monitor legislation, develop membership and provide education information to its members and the community at large. COGS has been widely recognized for its effectiveness in linking business and service providers with individuals in search of special services beneficial to older adults, or who need help in developing new services.
Now more than ever geriatric service providers must work together to meet the needs of the growing older adult population. Together through the benefits of networking, communication, problem solving, education and training, we can make a difference.
