Senior Citizen Call Service

To register please call 559-675-7976

Elder Orphans is a telephonic messaging service which stores subscriber's name, telephone number, address, emergency contact information, and call times. The program was created by the Madera County Sheriff's Office to meet the needs of Madera County's Senior Citizens who live alone.

Elder Orphans is a free house check calling program for people who want daily contact by receiving a pre-recorded message on their home phone. You select when you want us to call you and how often.

When you receive the pre-recorded message you will be instructed to touch the #1 button on your phone to indicate you are fine; or the #2 button indicating that you need emergency assistance. When you touch the #2 button you will be transferred to the Sheriff's Communications Center.

Elder Orphans is only available to Madera County residents. Our mission is to provide peace of mind for you, your family, neighbors and friends.
