NEW PROGRAM FOR SHELL KNOB SENIORS

 A new program is being made available to senior citizens who are over 60 years of age and live in Barry County, including the portion of Shell Knob in the county.

 The Barry County Council On Aging wants to inform seniors that funding was granted to lease thirty medical alert systems for seniors needing this kind of help.  The Senior Citizens' Services Tax Fund Board has been working with the County Council On Aging to find a way to assist seniors who need emergency services at home, but are unable to reach their telephone.

 

 

The medic alert system will automatically contact an emergency dispatch center whenever the neck pendulant worn in the home by the user is depressed.  This system can be essential to safety and well-being  of a senior who needs assistance getting up after a fall, or who are experiencing a stroke or heart attack but can not readily get to a phone to call 911.

Joan, My sister, a nurse for elderly patients, is a great proponent of these devices. They can mean the difference between life and death.

Yes, Judy.  They truly are marvelous.  My mother-in-law also had one and it made everyone feel better knowing she did.
