Some local police departments are offering a great service for the senior citizen population in their communities. (Some towns even include citizens with disabilities.)

The purpose of the Good Morning and Are you okay? Programs are to provide people who live alone a sense of security in knowing that someone is in contact with them on a daily basis and to provide them with help if needed.

There are different requirements for each town, but the overview is the same. The resident that takes part in the program calls-in to the police department daily, if the police department does not hear from them by the appointed time, then a call will be placed to the resident, if there is no answer then an officer is sent to the residence for a well being check.

We live in a time when family members don’t always live in the same town as an elderly parent or grandparent. Knowing that there are people in the community helping to check in on relatives can bring peace of mind.

Here are just a few local towns that offer a Good Morning or Are you okay? Program.

Merrimack - https://www.merrimacknh.gov/police-department/pages/good-morning-merrimack

Milford - https://www.milford.nh.gov/police-department/pages/good-morning-milford-program

Amherst - https://www.amherstnh.gov/police-department/pages/community-policing-programs

Are you okay? Program:

Manchester - http://www.manchesterpolice.org/PROGRAMS/Are_you_OK.html

Bedford - https://www.bedfordnh.org/455/Are-You-OK

If your town has one of these programs we did not list please feel free to share below. Or if you would like more information search your towns Police Department website. If you choose to call remember to call the non emergency number.

These programs are great to have in place, but adding another layer of security can bring even more peace of mind for the program participant as well as family members.

Medical (Personal) Emergency Response System – Trained operators with the individuals medical and emergency contact information will answer the call from the two-way voice emergency pendant.  

Not all elderly people are housebound.  Bu using a Mobile Emergency Response System allows for the elderly to be monitored far outside the range of a unit in the house, in the event of a medical emergency.

Call us today, at 800-570-6478 we would be happy help you or an elderly relative setup a Medical Emergency Response System or Mobile Emergency Response System.  For more information follow this link http://bit.ly/2pIeb0g
