Seniors may take advantage of several services. Are You OK is an automated telephone monitoring system that checks on homebound people. At the same time each day, a computer places a call to subscribers. If three calls in the space of half an hour are unanswered, the computer will register an alert and an emergency contact will be notified. The service is free. For details, call parks and recreation at 232-6162.

Lifeline is a personal emergency response service in which one press of a button signals help day or night. For information, call the Visiting Nurse Association at 666-7616.

Project Lifesaver is an ongoing program funded by the county and adminstered by ElderServe in Yonkers. Through the program, seniors who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia who are prone to wandering are given transmitter bracelets. In the event they become lost, county police officers can find them using a radio signal transmitted from the bracelets. The bracelets are free to the first 100 participants; there is a fee for those who sign on afterwards. For information, call Nancy D’Auria at 368-5506 or e-mail.
