Deaf Seniors' Program

(in Anne Arundel County and Beyond)




The focus of the Deaf Seniors’ Program is to provide information and materials, resources and to improve lives that will enable d/Deaf, hard of hearing and late-deafened seniors and almost seniors to continue being involved in their community. This will enhance their sense of well-being and improve the quality of their lives.

These objectives support the church’s mission to promote advocacy, hospitality, independence, and community regardless of people’s background. All are welcome.


The Deaf Seniors Program provides the following services:

  • Advocacy

  • Community Education

  • Peer Support

  • Community

In addition to the above, Deaf seniors can participate in community educational forums, be involved in a variety of activities and special events, attend social gatherings, that are especially designed to meet an array of interests and needs of an active and growing senior population.

Forums (seminars) are scheduled on the first Saturday of the month for Deaf Seniors and almost seniors at Magothy United Methodist Church of the Deaf. Presentations and activities offer valuable information in areas of health, fitness, counseling, nutrition, technology, education, Deaf issues, ADA laws, in-home support services, financial and estate planning, benefits, volunteering, recreation, community action, and  much, much more!


Magothy’s Deaf seniors’ program welcomes d/Deaf, hard of hearing and late-deafened adults age 50 and older, who live in Maryland and surrounding states.
