Free daily phone checkups available

The program You Are Not Alone, or YANA, is a free telephone reassurance program in El Dorado County for anyone needing a daily phone check up. This program is for all ages, for clients with a medical necessity or disability. The program is on a referral basis as a free service. Referrals are received from local hospitals, social workers and families with several referrals coming from adult protective services. They are also a visiting network for seniors and disabled. Volunteers do a majority of the work, including the Sheriffs Team of Active Retirees (STAR) volunteers who are trained through the sheriff’s office.

Referrals can be made over the phone or sent in by fax. Usually a call once or twice a week will suit a client’s needs.
