VVCC loans and installs a Personal Assistance Security System for persons with a medical condition and/or living alone. It plugs into a normal phone outlet that’s programmed with neighbors’ or family members’ phone numbers who can quickly respond in an emergency.
The rest of the system is a heart-shaped pendant which is normally worn around the neck. If a ‘Neighbor’ falls and can’t get up or has any kind of emergency, they can push the pendant’s button which automatically calls for help.
The volunteer opportunities available with this program are:
- Guardian Angel Install: Going to a ‘Neighbor’s’ home to install and program a Guardian Angel Unit and explain to the ‘Neighbor’ how it works.
- Guardian Angel Check: Going to a ‘Neighbor’s’ home to check or reprogram a Guardian Angel Unit.
- Guardian Angel Retrieval: Going to a ‘Neighbor’s’ home to pick up a Guardian Angel Unit after it is no longer needed.
