Maroondah Police Seniors Register

Helping you feel safe and confident

The Register is a free program run by volunteers to help seniors living in Maroondah feel safe and connected to their community. The program aims to give residents, relatives and friends peace of mind, knowing that someone is watching out for their welfare.

People on the register receive regular phone calls from volunteers who check on their welfare. The Register contains people's emergency information that can be used by emergency services to contact key people in an emergency. 

Joining the register

Your details are entered into a confidential list that can be accessed by authorised personnel to find details of your emergency contacts, such as next of kin or doctor, in an emergency. You will then receive a welcome letter and a registration card containing a unique number.

A volunteer will then telephone you to make an appointment for a home visit and provide you with safety information.

You will also receive a newsletter that includes information on local activities and safety information. 

As a member of the register, you will be invited to attend a social outing once or twice a year to help you keep connected to your community.

How does the register work?

Volunteers will contact you on a fortnightly or monthly basis, as agreed, to check on your welfare.

If a phone call and follow-up calls are not answered within a specified timeframe, your nominated emergency contact is notified.

If this person cannot be contacted or is unable to respond, local police officers may be asked to check on your wellbeing.
