Senior Call Check
This is a free service provided by the Maryland Department of Aging for people over 65. 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. They will provide messages and updates regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and where to find support if needed. To Join: Call 1-866-50-CHECK (1-866-502-4325) or visit aging.maryland.gov
