Find Peace of Mind in Maryland’s Best Senior Living Community
Founded by Quakers and open to all, Friends House is an environmentally conscious, diverse, nonprofit community located on 62 rolling acres, in close proximity to a variety of shops, museums and medical center. North of Silver Spring and east of Olney, Friends House is less than an hour’s drive from either Baltimore or Washington D.C., making it a premier choice for older adults seeking peaceful, revitalizing living in the DMV area.
As a Type-C Life Plan Community, Friends House grants residents and their loved ones complete peace of mind by providing a fee-for-service continuum of care, meaning multiple levels of care are available on our campus for every need as they develop in the lives of residents.
We welcome senior adults regardless of race, color, disability, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, national origin or familial status.

Our Friends House Seniors Association guides our resident programs. Seniors Association raises its own funds and allocates them to various resident-run committees and programs for residents and staff.
The care my sister received was AWESOME! She had a terminal illness and was kept clean, up out of bed, dressed and socially engaged as long as possible. The CNAs, nurses, caretakers were kind and caring … I would recommend to anyone living in the area to consider Friends House.
This is without a doubt one of the finest facilities a person could ask for. They have everything you need to thrive. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate you. The restaurant facilities are outstanding. And maintenance is always there when needed.
Our family has had a mom, two aunts, and now another aunt living at Friends House in different stages of care. This is an amazing place, and the care is exceptional.
Living very far away, it is so comforting to know that my mother has the high-quality care of their skilled nursing facility, as well as the support of the community. I love to visit and always make new friends amongst the residents. So many interesting, engaged elders.
The grounds are lovely (fruit orchards), and it has great apartment living for independent living Low key, casual laid back living in a great location.
Looking to the Future
A carefully designed expansion plan is furthering our mission of providing older adults in Montgomery County with an affordable retirement experience – without sacrificing excellence of care.
