We are thrilled to share the heartfelt journey of one of our busy residents, Nancy, who embodies the very essence of what makes Friends House so special. Let’s delve into her experience at Friends House and the heartwarming connections nurtured through the Friends of Health Care program.
Embracing Family and Community Ties
“I chose Friends House because it is a place where my family and I are all connected. Two of my grandchildren attended Sandy Spring Friends School; my daughter’s family is part of Sandy Spring Monthly Meeting, and my son, a police officer in this district, adds an extra layer of familiarity.”
At Friends House, we believe that true community starts with the bonds of family. Our intimate connection to the surrounding community brings a sense of belonging to every resident who calls Friends House their home.
Discovering Friends of Health Care: Bridging Barriers and Embracing Altruism
“During the pandemic, when regulations limited family visits, Friends of Health Care emerged as a beacon of hope and support. As a volunteer, I saw firsthand how these visits and interactions lit up the lives of our nursing home and assisted living residents, providing them with much-needed stimulation and companionship.”
Through the Friends of Health Care program, our residents and volunteers create bridges that span across Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing, enriching lives through compassionate connections. It’s the warmth of these interactions that truly sets Friends House apart.

It’s heartwarming to see their artwork showcased and cherished, bringing smiles to many faces.”
At Friends House, the impact of the Friends of Health Care program goes beyond practical support. It’s about the magic of discovering the untold stories and talents that reside within each person, creating beautiful moments that leave a lasting imprint on hearts.
