Rosalie Coffman could be playing cards, watching vintage movies or just enjoying her retirement at Bykota Senior Center in Towson. Instead, she's happily ensconced in her office down the hall, where she supervises a staff of 40 for the Baltimore County Department of Aging. Coffman is one of more than a dozen employees who could be clients, but have decided they would rather help run the agency. They are people in their 60s and 70s who find work invigorating. At 62, Coffman manages County Ride, Baltimore County's senior transportation program, which served almost 5,000 clients last year.

The Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities is seeking volunteers for a focus group to help the agency form a marketing strategy to promote its services. Part of the problem, officials say, is that some people aren't aware of specific county services. "That has been a concern of our department," said Jeffrey Balentine, assistant director of the Department of Aging and Disabilities. "We'll hear about people saying they haven't heard of our services, so we'll try to market our department and make sure they know what we offer."

People shop around for a car and a house. Why not do the same for their funeral? That's what advocates for the elderly at Baltimore County's Department of Aging were thinking when they began putting together a consumer guide to planning a burial or cremation. The 36-page booklet, with advice on how to choose a casket or donate your body to science, was released this week. Because the subject often makes people squeamish, the authors gave the guide the oblique title, "It May Be Your Third Largest Purchase."
