RYE, N.Y. -- The City of Rye Police Department has implemented MyDailyCall, a telephone reassurance program for elderly residents.
MyDailyCall provides daily telephone calls designed to provide a friendly contact to the elderly, those who live alone or to anyone who may benefit from a reassurance call.
“This automated system allows us to ensure the safety and welfare of some of our most vulnerable residents. We know the system is a benefit to both those participating and their families as it provides much needed daily contact to make them feel more secure and safe,” Police Commissioner William Connors said in a statement.
“The Department has had similar systems in place since the 1990’s – first, the RUOK program, followed by Guardian Calling. MyDailyCall is the most recent development, and coincides with our implementation of the CodeRED telephone notification system. We encourage residents who are in need – particularly the elderly or homebound – to register for the service.”
To enroll, contact the police department at (914) 967-1234, ext. 304 to select the frequency and the days on which the system will contact you, as well as an emergency contact who will provide immediate follow up if the system does not receive a response from the participant during the call.
