Extra reassurance for older adults and their families by providing long-term or short-term daily contact. TeleCheck is both a security call to ensure that the person is not in need of assistance and a social call.
I can't thank Community Torchlight enough. They were really there for me when my family and I were going through some very stressful times. It was a great relief to be able to talk to the knowledgeable and kind staff.
I have diabetes and have fallen when my blood sugar levels go too low. Now I have TeleCheck calling me. This helps me to get up and do my morning routine, reducing my risk of falling from low blood sugar.
