The CARE (Call Reassurance) senior calling program is designed and developed by Database Systems Corp. This program is a daily checkup call that checks on the well being of senior citizens who live alone.
There are a number of resources available to seniors to learn more about automatic calling services. DSC provides a complete national directory of telephone reassurance providers including a listing of the locations where police and sheriff's offices have installed CARE phone systems.
DSC has also accumulated a number of articles and success stories that highlight the benefits of enrolling in a telephone reassurance program.

DSC has found hundreds of communities that are providing telephone reassurance programs throughout the United States including community volunteer programs. We have also found many private and public organizations that potentially provide grants to community organizations.
The CARE communities is a list of groups organized by state that are telephone reassurance providers and potential funding sources for telecare programs. In some cases, the funding is in a general health and welfare category while some states have specific programs for call reassurance programs.
Latchkey kids refer to younger children and students that come home from school to an empty house because their parents are away at work. To help parents monitor the safety of their kids, Database Systems Corp. (DSC) has developed an automatic calling program that checks on the welfare of these children.
The latchkey children calling program simply calls your child (on the days and times you specify) and greets your child with a recorded message. The child is instructed to "Press 1" to acknowledge the call.
If the child does not answer the call or indicates that he or she needs help, the parent or guardian is notified by this calling program.
