The Transylvania County Sheriff’s Office receives many calls from concerned neighbors or relatives who are worried because they have not seen or heard from an elderly or disabled person who lives alone.
More often than not when we are asked to "check the welfare" of these persons, our deputies find a bad situation that could have been prevented if that senior or disabled person had been registered in the Reassurance Program.
Reassurance puts our senior and disabled population in daily contact with our Sheriff's Office who make it their mission to affirm the safety and welfare of those persons on a daily basis.
It is our hope Reassurance will help save the lives of dozens of people who have fallen, suffered seizures or succumbed to various illnesses.
This FREE program is available to all senior citizens or disabled persons living in Transylvania County. For more information or to register for this program, call the Sheriff’s Office at 828-884-3168 and ask about the Reassurance Program.
