16 Seniors Receive Free Intouch Alert Pendants

INVERNESS COUNTY, N.S. — The Municipality of the County of Inverness is pleased that announced that 16 seniors in the County have received Northwood Intouch Alert Pendants free for one year through a partnership with Northwood and the Rural Communities Foundation.

Seniors who live alone aged 65 years or more within an isolated community or location in Inverness County, and have an active landline were able to apply for the program.

One such participant shared her gratitude for the program with Municipal staff. “I am so much more secure and appreciative that assistance is but a push of the button away. This is very reassuring when one lives alone,” she said. “I am indebted to you and all those who made this possible.”

While applications are now closed, the Municipality is pleased with the success of this initiative and is currently looking into continuing the program in the coming years.
