[ARCHIVED] Police Department Launches Senior Care Call Program

Bedford seniors ages 65 and older who live alone can now enroll in the Bedford Police Department’s new Senior Care Call program. This program is for seniors who would like to receive a phone call from Police Department Volunteers to check on their welfare twice a week.

Volunteers will conduct their semi-weekly phone calls on Wednesdays and Fridays, starting Wednesday, July 7. During the call, volunteers will ask seniors if they are OK; if they answer "yes" they may simply hang-up and continue with their day. However, if the senior expresses a concern, the volunteer will then determine what kind of need they have, and the appropriate assistance.

If the senior does not answer the phone or if the line is busy, volunteers will call back. If there is still no response when they call back, a volunteer will perform a safety check at the senior's residence. Seniors or family members may pick-up an application at the Bedford Police Department, 2121 L. Don Dodson Rd. or may fill out the online form at, where there is more detailed information about the program. For questions, please email
