R.U.O.K. (Are You Okay?)
Another program provided by Lower Columbia CAP is a free, daily check in service by telephone for individuals that live alone and have medical issues putting them at risk. A staff member will contact you or your loved one on a daily basis at an agreed upon time to assure that all things are going well for the day. Many of our participants enjoy a friendly phone call in the morning and get a reminder to take medications.
In the event that a call goes unanswered, protocol is that we attempt phone calls every 15 minutes for the next hour or until answered. If still unanswered, the emergency contact person is notified of the unanswered phone call. If we are unable to reach the emergency contact person or they are unable to check on the individual, then we contact local law enforcement and ask for a wellness check.
Please call us at 360-425-3430 ext. 240 or 259 for this service. You may also call us toll free at 1-800-383-2101 ext. 240 or 259.
