BALTIMORE - Maryland's population is getting older, and the AARP thinks the state needs a better plan to deal with it. AARP leaders from eight states are meeting in Baltimore this week to discuss their policy priorities for the next year.

AARP Maryland state director Hank Greenberg said he hopes the 2014 Maryland General Assembly will work toward a comprehensive plan to protect the state's aging population.

"Maryland is now at a point where there are more people who are over the age of 60 than there are children in school," he said. "The resources need to match some of those needs that we know are coming."

Greenberg said some of those needs include improving caregiving, retirement planning and utility reliability.

He said Maryland seniors need more resources to be able to age in their homes.

"We need to make sure that caregivers have the training they need, that they have some respite care, because burnout is a very big problem," he said. "Particularly, we're talking about caregivers who are family members."
