Taking the Fear Out of Being Alone
Contacting a senior or physically challenged adult on a daily basis helps to assure their well being and gives them a feeling of security.
The Care Call telephone system eases the concern of friends and family who may find it difficult to maintain consistent, reliable contact.
People want the independence of living alone along with the security of being monitored. The Carecall System brings a sense of comfort into every client’s home.
Each day at a specified time, the system automatically makes the calls, inexpensively and without interruptions to normal community services.
What It Is And How It Works
This system is designated to telephone clients at a set time daily to confirm that they are okay. It is a tool which helps the client to remain at home comfortable with the knowledge that if they cannot answer for some reason or other, assistance will be forthcoming.
If the client doesn’t answer after a preset number of call attempts, an ALERT is issued. This is a print out of complete background information on the client, including doctor’s name and address, nearest friend or relative and medical history.
Things To Remember
We must be notified if you are not going to be home for your call. You may call anytime day or night and leave a message on our answering machine.
If you are hurt and need help— do not answer your phone at the pre arranged time for your call or the 2 calls that follow. Help will then be sent to you.
The program is voice activated, therefore, if you have an answering machine and it picks up the call we send, the program will react in the same way as it would if you answered it.
