“Are You OK" (RUOK) Program
Keeping seniors safe and making sure family members feel secure about their loved ones well-being is the mission of “Are You OK”, a daily phone call program created by the Village of Scarsdale in cooperation with the Scarsdale Police Department.
Participants receive a daily scheduled call at a specific time and should pick up the phone, respond to a question, and then hang it up. If a participant does not pick up, they will receive two more calls. If no one picks up by the third call, the police will go to the house to make sure the person is OK. This should give those who live alone and their families a feeling of security.
If you are interested in this FREE service, please the Scarsdale Police Department non-emergency number: (912) 722-1200.
