The Ogunquit Police Department is proud to sponsor the “Good Morning” program. This program is designed to assist senior citizens or adults with disabilities who are living alone in the community. The goal is to assist these people so that they may continue living an independent lifestyle. Project “Good Morning” will aid in eliminating many concerns families may have about loved ones that live alone. The program is able to provide the security of knowing that the member will have a source of daily contact.
Residents may be eligible for this program if they are a senior citizen or an adult with disabilities living alone. A brief application must be completed, and a waiver signed. This will provide us with some basic information about the participant. Upon completion of the application the participant will call the Ogunquit Police Department daily between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. to say “good morning.” If a program representative does not receive your call by 10:00 a.m. the program representative will attempt to call the participant. If contact cannot be made by telephone, a patrol unit will be dispatched to the residence to check on the welfare of the participant.
The Ogunquit Police Department is pleased to be able to provide this service to residents of the Town. The program has aided many Ogunquit residents in receiving the proper aid they needed when they suffered from an unexpected incapacity or predicament and had been unable to call for assistance.
Interested parties are encouraged to fill out a Good Morning Program form.
