Carrier Link - local senior centers and postal workers aid vulnerable older adults in the community. Postal workers are trained to identify certain danger signals that could indicate assistance is needed. A uniform county wide identification will be issued to older residents registered on the program to allow postal workers to identify participant homes. A phone call from the postal office to the locally designated senior agency will help a person obtain immediate help to avert a crisis situation or to link them into support services in the community. Check with your local senior center to see if your town participates in Carrier Link.
