Oh my goodness Wily, I was so hoping this time you would have no troubles! This endeavor can surely wait until after the holiday season when we all have more time and energy to put into this.

There are two services I was going to suggest.

The Red Alert system has places where a person can put illnesses or special needs. For each person that needs a welfare check, maybe we can help that person set up the Red Alert system with any pertinent information about that person's health needs or special needs.

Secondly, Elk Creek Fire company keeps a record of special health needs that medical emergency service personal use when they go to a person's place during a call. Maybe we could also help a person notify Elk Creek Fire with their special health requirements.

yes! great ideas to add to my list... I had someone email about neighbors in their 80's that do not do computers or smartphones, just their land line, so I think as we go, we can offer different ways that work for different people. I want to get in touch with local senior services, sheriff, and fire department for their suggestions this week or next.

We should definitely be sure all members sign up for these resources! Sounds like exhausting requests.

Along with that in the meantime, let's be sure we're here today.... viewtopic.php?f=160&t=233866

OK boys and girls,

I need to start communicating and tracking only via email. I am getting messages from all over and it is getting hard to track. I don't want to miss anyone. I just combined it all into a spreadsheet for me

Here are folks that I know about that want to participate with this buddy program

Aspenleaf
Denako
Desertrose
Dieselpop
Geezerina
Mirsh

I need email addresses for the following folks. If you would kindly pop a quick email over connecting your pinecam name to your email, I would appreciate it. angela@sandersound dot com ✔️ means I now have your email

Meantime, something to get together - your pet's information

I am working on creating custom HOME ALONE cards for people's pets.
you know those cards.
something like this but in card form for wallet and full page for refrigerator with places for multiple pet names. I will create it so folks can type into the form so it is more legible.

This image is for quick reference so everyone knows what I am talking about.

I will send along via email when I get done.

I will send along all detail at once via email with sections regarding yourselves and your pets along with attachments so we can get this in place quickly. We can learn as we go and I will bring in other services as I locate them.

For example , I will send along a simple living will that folks can fill out and have notarized to ensure care of their pets.

I just sent out first email to list to begin getting the details in order to begin the buddy check-in

I have not heard from the following folks to obtain email address, so you have not been included in group. If you do want to join in, then you must send me your email by end of this week.

OK Folks, I have responses from this group and out of this group, only two need a check in buddy. The rest of us are volunteering to be a check in buddy. So I will proceed to email the first group and get things lined up for these two members that need a checkin buddy. This should be easy peasy since we have more than enough folks to do the checking.

Did not respond to email. If you did and I missed it, please let me know!

Hi Everyone,

I have been waiting for a couple of responses, but I decided to move forward without them for now and we can add those folks in as needed.

Right now, we are all women! We have two in the group that live alone and need a check in buddy. Lisa (aspenleaf) and I are stepping up to be the first two so we can work out any kinks and tweak the process for new members that may join. The rest of you that signed up to be a buddy have no action required at this time, but as we add new folks, I hope you are still up to being someone’s check in buddy.

I am doing all of this in honor of my friend, Jane Kulik, Pinecam’s “Mummydog”. She died in her sleep and was only found because a neighbor had noticed she had not picked up her mail in a few days. The sheriff found her and her three dogs when they went in for a welfare check. The dogs went to Foothills Animal Shelter. It was found out by a friend that was also in the same dog rescue group that Jane was in and she got the dogs out of the shelter and back into the fold of the rescue group.
It got me thinking about how many others that now find themselves living alone that do not have anything in place to check in on one another.

I am so pleased we are able to put this in place and help each other.

Happy New Year!
Angela
