How can elderly neighbors keep tabs on each other daily?


How can elderly neighbors keep tabs on each other daily?

I am 77 years old, live in a condo community, and have nearby nenighbors who are as old or older than I am. We would like to figure out a way to check in with each other on a daily basis simply to confirm that we are alive and well. Can you help with suggestions on how to implement this?

In the senior community where my mother lived for years and years, they had a system where each of the residents placed a colored tag outside their door by a certain time each morning and each evening - the tags and colors were different for morning and evening.


This was a high-rise, so one of the floor residents would do the checking - and report any oddities to the security staff for further checking.


The system worked well yet it was not intrusive and there was some very old ladies living there - well over 90.
