Back to Areas of Care
TeleCheck~Dufferin is a daily call-out check-in service that supports the safety of seniors 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 seniors.
