Many of the families may now be living in another town and it gives them a feeling of comfort to know that their parent or older relative is being checked on regularly.  Health is not always an issue-anyone can have a fall or other accident at any time and there have been many occasions when such a person lies for hours, before anyone is aware of what has happened.

The service is free to anyone of any age, who lives in the Gridley, Biggs, or Live Oak area.  If there is no answer after two calls, a local friend or relative is contacted to make sure that there is no problem.  It is asked that the auxiliary be notified if someone plans to be out of town, has a doctor’s appointment, etc.

If you live alone, it is considerate to give your family the peace of mind that will come with knowing you are all right.

To enroll in this service call Winnie Grof (846-2038) or Martha Wright (846-2704)
