Are You OKAY

This Program was implemented in 1992. The purpose of the "ARE YOU OKAY" program is to phone and check on senior citizens everyday and to provide them with peace of mind that someone cares and is available to assist them.

We currently have over 300 citizens who participate in the "ARE YOU OKAY" program and we have the computer capabilities to enroll every citizen in Rutherford County. Local physicians have documented that this program has already saved the lives of over ten of our citizens. With this success, we will continue to work to increase the number of citizens who enrolled in this program.

If you would like more information concerning this program or know of friends, family or neighbors who could benefit from the "ARE YOU OKAY" program, please contact the Rutherford County Sheriff's Department in Rutherfordton, North Carolina.
