Organization: Pound Ridge Police Department, Pound Ridge, New York
Type Of Service: FREE - Computerized Phone Calling Service
"The Telephone Reassurance program is a computerized telephone calling system, which is a service designed for older adults, disabled persons, shut-ins who live alone or anyone else in our Town who needs to be checked on a daily basis.
It is funded by the Town of Pound Ridge and operated, free of charge, by Chief Dave Ryan and his officers at the Pound Ridge Police Station. The system calls each enrolled subscriber at the same time each day. When the subscriber picks up the phone, she/he will hear a voice saying "Good morning, RUOK?" If the phone is not answered or the line is busy after several tries, the computer immediately notifies the police who will send a patrol car to check on the person. If you plan to be away, a call to the police (764-4206) will stop the calls. The calls will be made at the same time each day and you will decide the best time for you.
Individuals interested in enrolling in the program will have to complete a short medical form with information that may be needed in an emergency. The information provided will be absolutely confidential and kept at the Police Department. This is a life-saving service, tried and proven to work well in many towns and cities throughout the United States.
For further information or to sign up for this service, please call either Felice Joaquim of Neighbor-to-Neighbor at 764-5472 or the Supervisor’s Office at 764-5511. It’s truly a life saver!"
The Pound Ridge Police Department uses the CARE (Call Reassurance) phone system from Database Systems Corp. to provide its senior citizens with a phone reassurance service. Citizens can be called daily free of charge to ensure their well-being.
