OHFL’s transportation services help seniors get to the hospital, to the store, to a doctor’s appointment, or a social gathering anywhere in Montgomery County.
When calling make sure to leave your name, address, phone number and email (if you use one) with our operators. It is best if you give us a week’s notice before your anticipated ride. Our scheduler will get back to you as soon as the ride has been scheduled to verify the details. To schedule a ride please call 301-446-2512
Friendly Calls Program
OHFL’s Friendly Calls Program provides free, friendly phone calls daily to Olney area seniors. For people living alone, the service provides at least one brief social contact during the day. For others, the phone call provides reassurance that someone has checked in on them that day. Please note that this is a social call only and is not a substitute for a telemedicine provider, medical alert or counseling service.
Friendly Visits Program
OHFL’s Friendly Visits Program is conducted in partnership with the Mental Health Association of Montgomery County. It provides free, friendly visits on a weekly basis to seniors for the purpose of offering friendship and support to adults who may be home-bound or isolated because of physical concerns and chronic illness.
Schedule a Friendly Call or Visit
Seniors or their caregivers can contact us. Friendly Calls and Visits Program participants need to provide basic information to register for the program, including names of emergency contacts so that volunteers and staff may have information in case a problem requires follow up. The participant must be willing to provide this information to participate in calls and visits.
