Emergency Services

Sub categories include:

Organizations or specific programs dedicated to elder abuse prevention or intervention during crisis situations.
Organizations which provide food, clothing, shelter, or protection on an emergency basis.
Organizations in our community that provide emergency assistance to elders including crisis intervention, victim assistance, elder abuse prevention, protection services, and provisions for basic necessities in the event of an emergency.
Emergency Response Systems enable persons who live alone or who have medical conditions to summon assistance in emergency situations. Participants typically wear a small portable button which, when pressed, signals a representative at a monitoring center who gathers information and dispatch assistance. Most systems have an installation charge and do not require a long term contract. All are billed on a monthly basis.
