NEW Important Senior Call Check Program

Please spread the word about this important new program and sign up if you meet the criteria.


Maryland is the first state in the country to start a free, opt-in, telephonic service to check on Maryland’s older residents, all across the state.


The Maryland Office on Aging has a free program for seniors 65 or older. You can sign up to receive a phone call each day to check on you.


Every day a telephone call will be placed to a participant at a regularly scheduled time. These calls will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. as close
as possible to the one-hour time block pre-selected by the participant. If the participant does not answer their first call, they will be tried two more
times. If those calls go unanswered, additional calls will be made to notify an alternative person who is selected by the participant during program enrollment.
This could be an adult child, a neighbor, or another loved one. The alternate will then be encouraged to check on the older adult program participant.
The failure of the participant and alternate to answer may result in a Welfare Check by local law enforcement.
