There may be times when seniors who live on their own feel the need and would take comfort in receiving a morning check-in call. Through Operation Reassurance, older adults speak daily with a trained staff member to make sure that they are safe and sound.
This program enables seniors living in Montgomery, Bucks and parts of Philadelphia counties to live independently and feel confident and secure. That may also reassure families and friends who live at a distance.
About the Program
Every morning, from 7 to 9:30 a.m., participants call a trained staff member of the Operation Reassurance team. The team member asks the seniors how they are doing and if all is well.
If a participant does not call in during those hours, a team member will call the person at home. If there is no response or there is an emergency, the team will call for help immediately.
Operation Reassurance is a free service of Abington Health. Trained staff members serve seniors seven days a week, including holidays.
