Olney Home For Life Services

Olney Home For Life, Inc. takes pride in the services it offers seniors. It is truly a program of neighbors helping seniors. All our services are FREE. We rely on volunteers from the Olney area to deliver our services. Anyone over 60 in our service area (Olney, Ashton, Brookeville and Sandy Spring) can use our services. We also serve those outside our service area who need transportation to MedStar Montgomery’s Cancer Center

TRANSPORTATION

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.
