"Are You Okay?" Telephone Reassurance Program

The Are You OK? program is a FREE telephone reassurance program for frail elders or disabled people.
How it works is a computerized phone call is made once per day, at the same time each day, to the participants home from the Nashoba Valley Regional Dispatch Center.  All the participant needs to do is pick up the phone, listen to a short 10-second message, then hang up.  If after 2 attempts, and the telephone is not picked up by the participant, emergency personnel will be dispatched to their home to check on their well being.

Eventually, this program will be offered to all other communities serviced by the Nashoba Valley Regional Dispatch District.
If you are interested in signing up for this program call Outreach Coordinator, Faith Anderson, at 978-582-4166

This program is made possible by a grant applied for by the Lunenburg Council on Aging to the Nashoba Valley Community Healthcare Fund with financial support from the Greater Lowell Community Foundation and the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts.

Sand for Seniors Program

This program is for Lunenburg residents age 60+ who are frail or disabled people under 60 that may find it difficult to sand their driveways and walkways.
Apartment complexes, Condominiums, and Mobile Home Parks do not qualify for this program.

This program is not intended to be used as a substitute for the public sand suspension at the DPW 

If you do not qualify for the program, buckets of sand are available for purchase at reasonable fees, at local sand and gravel businesses.

Your cooperation in following the guidelines of our program would be much appreciated or we will no longer be able to continue with this valuable program for those truly in need.

To apply call the Eagle House Senior Center at 978-582-4166 and ask for Pauline Roy, Outreach Coordinator (please do not contact the DPW or Fire Department)
If approved, a member of the Lunenburg Fire Department will deliver one, 5-gallon bucket of sand to your home and while there, will check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for you.

We would like to thank the Lunenburg DPW, Lunenburg Fire Department, and Leaktite Corporation for their support and help with this program.
