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.
Tele-Check Dufferin has 45 volunteers who step up every day –rain or shine, to make the call– listening with compassion and concern for someone else’s wellbeing.

- Complete a Vulnerable Sector Screen
