The PAIR program is a free automated daily call service that reaches seniors out to ensure their safety and good health. Enrollees receive a call at pre-determined times, one or more times per day, depending on their request. Registration is voluntary.
Answering the call indicates that the individual is not in distress and able to call 911 if they do need help.
How does the service work?
A call system communicates with the subscriber on a daily basis and at the subscriber’s convenience, during the hours of operation of the service. A recorded message is played and the caller simply confirms that they have received the call by pressing a button on their phone.
If the subscriber does not answer, the automated system will attempt two more calls, with five minutes between each call. After the third call, if there is still no answer, the system will trigger an alert. At this point, steps will be taken to have someone (a family member, friend, neighbor or police officer) go to the location to verify the situation. This is why it is important to be present at the agreed upon and predetermined time.
Who can benefit from the PAIR program?
Any aging person or person in loss of autonomy who resides in one of the local municipalities of the Argenteuil MRC.
