Standish aims for safe seniors

A new program in the environs of Standish is one more way to make sure senior citizens are safe.

Standish Morning Check-in Program is for seniors and disabled residents of Standish who need that extra reassurance that someone cares.

Citizens will call in confidentially to a designated phone number and talk to a dispatcher or volunteer to let them know that they are okay. The call would be made between 8 and 10 every morning.

If the dispatch center does not hear from you, someone will call to check in and if there is still no response your emergency contact person would be notified.

For additional information about how to participate in this program or be a volunteer for this program, please call Deputy Paul Pettingill of the Cumberland County SheriffA? s Office at 1-800-501-1111.
