Safety For Seniors – You Are Not Alone Program

Boulder City, Nevada Police YONA

In case you’re not aware of it, the Boulder City Police Department provides safety checks for home bound senior citizens in Boulder City.

The You Are Not Alone (YANA) program provides a free check-in service, through telephone calls and in-person visits, to city residents who live alone. “We will do whatever works best for our clients, at a frequency that makes them feel the most safe and comfortable,” explained program supervisor Pat Richardson, the volunteer coordinator with the Boulder City Police Department.

Remember, this service is available even if family and friends don’t live in Boulder City, or even in the state of Nevada. So if you have an elderly relative living in Boulder City, then this service is available.

Richardson said the Boulder City Police Department began the program in March 2018 in conjunction with the Boulder City Senior Center, and has had as many as 11 clients participating at a time. Because the numbers have dipped recently, he is hoping more people will take advantage of this opportunity. According to Richardson, the program not only provides the immediate benefit of insuring the well-being of those without a social network, there are several important secondary benefits as well.

Anyone wanting more information about the program can contact Richardson at (702) 589-9603. A registration form and more information also can be found on the City’s web site HERE. Spread the word on this program, as it can give peace of mind to senior residents and the friends and family who care for them.
