Jennifer Maskala from Rosscare talks about their free call assurance program called Telecare.
Volunteers provide daily telephone contact for people who live alone in the Greater Bangor calling area.
Every Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., volunteers call participants and chat for a minute or two.
The volunteers follow specific procedures to ensure a participant is safe when they cannot reach him or her at their assigned time.
This gives families peace of mind, knowing that we are checking on their loved one and contacting them if something is amiss.
