Guidelines from Police

The Police have also taken the issue of helping out the elderly as a serious concern. Several Police stations have an officer or a cell which takes care of senior citizens and many of these cells have a programme where a senior citizen can sign up and the Police will come and visit the person regularly to ensure their safety and well-being.

However, you can provide the police with a helping hand. You can assure safety of your parents and elderly relatives by keeping a strict vigil on all that happens around you. The Police have also provided a set of guidelines which can be your first step to ensure safety.
