The R U OK? Senior Program is a free service that establishes a prearranged time for participants to receive a weekly phone call inquiring about their welfare.

During the call participants are asked “Are You OK?” If they answer “yes” they may simply hang up and continue with their day. If a concern is expressed, however, the caller would determine the nature of the concern and if some sort of response is appropriate. Unanswered calls or busy signals are called back. If there is still no response, the caller may request that an officer perform a safety check at the location.

“This program is intended for members of our senior community who live alone or may not have someone to check in on them regularly. We want our senior community to know that The City of Alton cares for them and has a team of first responders who will be checking on their welfare weekly once they are registered for this free service”. –Dr. Jonathan B. Flores ACM/Chief of Police.
