MCDD Joins Maryland Caregivers Commission

Gov. Larry Hogan appointed Christine Schoenberger, business manager for the Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities (MCDD), to serve on the Maryland Caregivers Support Coordinating Council, which will assume its new name, the Maryland Commission on Caregiving, on Oct. 1, 2017.

The group is tasked with identifying the needs and challenges faced by informal family caregivers of individuals with disabilities across those individuals’ lifespans, with advocating for policies that support those individuals, and with making recommendations for the coordination of services. MCDD currently provides the group with technical assistance for the Lifespan Respite Care Program.
