RUOK: (Are you okay?)
This a computerized program housed in the police station.  Your phone will ring at a time you select.  You do not have to talk, just picking up the receiver lets the system know you are okay.  If the phone is not picked up, the computer will try again in 15 minutes.  If there is no pick-up again, a police officer will be dispatched to your home to see if there is a problem.  If you would like your home to be included, please call the center at 533-3210 and we will put you on the list.

Transportation is available for medical trips to and from the Center Monday through Thursday.  Call 533-3210 at least three days before your appointment if possible.

Fuel Assistance

Medway residents can expect to pay dearly to be warm in their homes this winter.  There are some ways people to get around the high costs.  Thanks to extra money from the Federal Government, the SMOC Fuel Assistance Program is able to provide fuel assistance to low income people with annual incomes up to 200% of the federal poverty level, 0r $34,100 for a family of four; $28,300 for a family of three; $22,500 for a couple and $16,700 for a single person.  Last year over 114,000 Massachusetts households received energy assistance.  The fewer families that ask, means more money is available for those who do.  Those families that are eligible for fuel assistance also receive utility discounts.  For further information call the Senior Center 533-3210.

The Citizens Energy Program will also be running again this year.  Households may purchase up to 175 gallons of oil from a participating dealer at half of the set retail price.  SMOC fuel assistance families can access the Citizens Program once they have exhausted their benefits.  Anyone interested in this program can call 508-620-2318.  This is the only line that will be available for this program.

For families who do not qualify for the above programs, but have limited incomes, contact The Good Neighbor Energy Fund operated by the Salvation Army at 800-224-3047 or 508-875-3341.
