Would you enjoy a periodic friendly call? Would you benefit from a periodic security check up? Would you like to be a caller?
The Cumberland County Office on Aging & Disabled sponsors TE-ASSURE, a telephone reassurance program for elderly and disabled persons who live alone or who are homebound.
The Tel-Assure Program coordinates a regular telephone contact as a safety and welfare check for elderly and disabled clients. It is for those who live alone or who need a contact to ensure a sense of security. A procedure to notify emergency contacts or the County Sheriff's Department is implemented if the client does not answer when called at an appointed time.
If you are interested in either being called or serving as a volunteer caller, please contact RSVP Coordinator Judy Truman at 856-691-1329.
Tel-Assure is available to all eligible residents of the County in accordance with Title V of the Federal Civil Rights Act and applicable State statutes.
