Tips for Seniors


Senior couple

The following is a list of special tips that can help save the lives of our senior citizens:

  • Invest in a touch-tone phone with large, easy-to-read numbers.
  • Put a 9-1-1 reminder near the phone. Dialing ‘0’ will not always connect you with a local operator. It may connect you with an operator hundreds of miles away.
  • Always dial 9-1-1 for local police, fire or medical emergencies.
  • Keep your medical history taped to the refrigerator in an envelope clearly marked with your doctor’s phone number(s).
