The Dutchess County "Are You Okay?" program is a free senior safety program meant to ensure that elderly individuals living alone don't go unnoticed in the event of an emergency. A computer generated phone call is placed every day that asks the registered individual simply, "are you okay?" If the person fails to answer after 15 minutes, steps are taken to ensure that the individual is safe and in good health.
