How the Program Works
This program is FREE OF CHARGE to Auburn Subscribers. The system calls subscribers everyday at the same time. If the subscriber picks up the phone he or she will hear a voice saying, "Good Morning. ARE YOU O.K.?". If the subscriber fails to answer the phone after several tries or if there is a busy signal several times in a row, the computer immediately notifies the police dispatcher who will then send a patrol car to check on the person. During holidays, vacations or any other time the subscriber plans to be away a simple phone call to the Auburn Police station will stop the calls for as long as needed.

The City Of Auburn Police Department uses the CARE (Call Reassurance) phone system from Database Systems Corp. to provide its senior citizens with a phone reassurance service. The City of Auburn was a prior user of an "Are You OK?"® system from Northland Innovation Corp. and opted to convert this system to our Care (Call Reassurance) phone system. Citizens can be called daily free of charge to ensure their well-being.
"Auburn Police Chief Andrew Sluckis said his town has had a call service for more than a decade. It had been using Are You OK (RUOK), which was developed by Northland Innovation Corp., but switched to Database Systems' product.
'We really didn't have a choice,' explained Christina Silpe, director of elderly affairs for Auburn.
'When the RUOK system that had been in place for some time crashed and burned, we had a choice of replacing it with the newer RUOK software, or going with something new and we decided to go with Database System's Call Reasurrance (CARE) program,' Ms. Silpe said."
