Type Of Service: FREE - Automated Telephone Reassurance Program
""The Sheriff's "Are You O.K.?"(*) program is a computerized telephone reassurance service provided by TRIAD.
Senior citizens who sign up for the free service receive a phone call at the same time every day for as long as they want the service. The program allows a person the comfort and security needed to maintain personal independence. It also assures family and friends, who can't always be there, that their loved one is okay.
The calls are made between 6 a.m. and noon every day at a time requested by the person. All calls are monitored by the Sheriff's Are You O.K.? officer. When the call comes in, the person answers the phone and hears a recorded voice that asks if you are okay. The person may say "yes" and simply hang up. If something is wrong, the person should say no and the Sheriff's officer will immediately pick up the phone to find out what is wrong and take the appropriate action.
If a person does not answer the call, the computer automatically places a second call in five minutes. If there is still no answer, the Sheriff's officer will call a designated family member or friend to inform them. In some cases, the officer will contact local police and ask them to go to the person's home.
If the person plans on being away, a simple phone call to the Sheriff's Are You O.K.? officer will discontinue the calls and reactivate them when the person comes back.
For more information, please call Sheriff Bellotti's Are You O.K.? officer toll free at 1-866-900-RUOK®(7865)."
