CONTACT Cape-Atlantic provides telephone reassurance and community support for older adults, people with disabilities and those who are lonely, living alone, or feeling isolated from their community.
CONTACT Cape-Atlantic provides a FREE "check-in" phone call to older adults and people with disabilities who are living alone. This call allows them to remain independent in their own home, a goal so many of us share. If a phone call is not answered at the scheduled time, there are procedures each volunteer follows. These procedures have allowed CONTACT Cape-Atlantic to help many people in need.
Reassurance Phone Calls
The Telephone Reassurance Program provides daily calls to older adults and people with disabilities living in Atlantic and Cape May counties. The calls provide a friendly hello and a check to make sure all is well with our client. The program goal is to help this vulnerable population to continue their independent living. More than 200 clients are served every day. The youngest client is 46 years old; the oldest is 102 years old.
The Gatekeeper Program is an organized outreach effort designed to identify, refer, and respond to the needs of at-risk older adults and people with disabilities living in our community.
CONTACT Cape-Atlantic will train individuals and/or the employees of community businesses and corporations who work with the public to serve as community gatekeepers by identifying and referring older adults and people with disabilities who may be in need of services. Training can be done in person in about an hour or tools and materials can be provided to you.
Personal Emergency Response Monitoring
Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) are fall detection systems that help keep people safe and independent. When someone needs help, they push a button on their Fall Detection Pendant to instantly connect to emergency operators who can send the help.
