December 20, 2011 (San Diego) -- Senior Volunteer Patrol (SVP) members are making sure the season is merry and bright for seniors who live alone. They will be delivering holiday baskets or hot meals this month to seniors enrolled in the Sheriff’s You Are Not Alone (YANA) program.
The program ensures daily telephone calls and a weekly visit from a Senior Volunteer Patrol team year‐ round. If no one picks up the phone during the daily calls, a welfare check is also conducted. This is a FREE service for disabled people and seniors who live by themselves within the jurisdiction of the Sheriff’s Department. To enroll, please call (858) 565‐5200.
