Does this sound familiar? Your elderly mom, who lives alone, has not picked up the phone for several hours. You begin to wonder: Is something wrong? Should I call the police? Well, it could be that your mom lives in a place where the police can call her. It turns out that in many small towns and suburban communities around the country, police departments are now setting up automatic call systems which generate phone calls to seniors who live alone in the community. It’s often a very inexpensive way to confirm that all is well with these seniors, and it can trigger further immediate inquiry if something seems amiss. Different communities have adopted different systems, depending on their budgets and the availability of volunteers. And seniors need to sign up for the service and agree to the daily phone calls. But for seniors living alone, and their family members, this can be a simple way to ensure all is okay. Find out if such a call system might be right for your community by Reading Here.
