You Are Not Alone

YANA program opens to Goodyear seniors

 

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (July 16, 2010)  You Are Not Alone (YANA) is a free program that will be offered by the Goodyear Police Department Volunteers in Police Services (VIPS) beginning this fall.

 

Seniors who enroll in the YANA program will receive regular phone calls and wellness checks from VIPS representatives. It's a great resource for disabled seniors who enjoy the independence of living on their own but have no friends or family members nearby to check on them.  

 

YANA can also help seniors find other useful services and resources. If an emergency occurs during a phone call or home visit, the representative will arrange for a police officer to be sent to the residence right away.

 

The YANA program will be open for full service beginning Sept. 27. Two pre-registration dates are available for early sign up on August 30 and September 13.

 

Seniors can request registration forms from the Goodyear Police Department VIPS/YANA Program. Applicants must complete an application form, including name, address, phone number, emergency contacts with phone numbers, medical information, number of pets on premises, and vehicle information. Forms must be completed and include the original signature of the participant. Incomplete forms or forms without a valid original signature will not be accepted.

 

To learn more about YANA or to request a registration form and enroll in the program, contact The Goodyear Police Department VIPS /YANA Program at 623-882-7430, 175 N. 145th Building E, Goodyear, AZ. 85338.
