Operation Reassurance

Lower Moreland Township participates in a program with Abington Memorial Hospital that benefits senior citizens called Operation Reassurance.  For some older adults, relocating to live with family or friends is not an option.  Living alone may help maintain independence; however, there may be times when assistance is needed.  Operation Reassurance, a service of Abington Memorial Hospital, provides participants age 60 and older with the assurance that every day they can speak with a trained staff member to make sure that they are safe and sound.  The goal is to enable seniors, living in Eastern Montgomery County, to live independently and feel confident and secure.

How it Works

Every morning between the hours of 7 and 9:30 AM participants call a trained member of the Operation Reassurance team.  The staff member will ask the senior how they are doing and if all is well.  If the participant has not called during these hours, a member of the Operation Reassurance team will call the person at home.  If there is no response or an emergency, the team member will call for help immediately.  Operation Reassurance is a free service to all residents of Eastern Montgomery County.  Trained staff members serve our seniors seven days a week, including holidays.
