TeleCheck

Back to Areas of Care
TeleCheck is a daily call-out check-in service that supports the safety of adults 55+ who wish to live independently in their homes. The program operates out of the Orangeville, and has been running successfully for fifteen years. Calls are delivered each day, 8:30 a.m. – Noon and 3:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., seven days a week, by a team of dedicated volunteers and staff.
Members can design their own personal plan upon which their ‘call’ will be based. The call-out program works collaboratively with many community service providers such as Home and Community Care, Alzheimer Society, Headwaters Health Care Centre, Canadian Mental Health Association, Seniors Centre and other like-minded agencies that support adults 55+.

People interested in receiving the daily call-out service will register to become a Member of the service. No assessment is required; self referral is accepted by individuals and families.

The service is available to adults 55+ and to caregivers.

Daily or periodic check-in calls help:
  • Support health routine reminders (e.g. medications, meals, exercise, appointments)
  • Provide social connection
  • Increase safety, health and well-being
  • Quick link to emergency response and to community resources when required
  • Support for caregivers and individuals living with dementia
  • Ease concerns for family
