I'M OK Reassurance Program
Database Systems Corp. (DSC) provides community calling programs that include reminders and call reassurance programs for seniors and children at home.
CARE systems are usually maintained by local police or sheriff's organizations as well as community service groups. CARE may call subscribers once or more each day to ensure their well-being.
The CARE "I'm OK" answering service also allows seniors to call in each day to announce "I'm OK today". This provides the subscriber more flexibility in their schedule, rather than receiving a call at a fixed time each day.
Our Telephone Reassurance Systems include the latest computer telephony integration technology and equipment.
The CARE system includes an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) that automatically answers phone calls and acknowledge that a senior has called and is OK. This feature is called the CARE I'm OK option. Seniors can enroll in either type of calling program on the CARE system.
What Is CARE?
"Call Reassurance or CARE is an automated phone communications technology that calls seniors and homebound residents to ensure their well being. These calls are daily checks for citizens who are living alone and wish to be contacted in case something happens to them and they are unable to request emergency assistance on their own.
The IMOK feature of CARE reverses the traditional calling process. Seniors can now call an automated phone answering system on a daily basis which can use the Caller ID to identify the senior. If the senior calls from a different phone, the CARE system prompts them to enter their phone number.
Seniors subscribe to this service in their local communities which have CARE systems. Subscriptions vary among communities, but most are free to the CARE recipients."
If the senior fails to call the CARE system by a certain time, CARE will call the resident's home to see if they are OK.
If there is no response to the call, an emergency alert is generated.
