CHESTERTON, IN (PRWEB) December 7, 2005
MIR-A-CARE, LLC-A growing number of children are left home alone after school and part of the day on weekends because parents work and have other duties outside the home. These “latchkey kids” are left unattended. Most states do not have laws about home alone children. There are a few local ordinances scattered through out the country. All experts do agree that children age seven (7) and younger should never be left unattended. The best solution for these home alone children is, of course; one of the many after school programs sponsored by organizations like the YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club of America. Not all communities have after school programs. Even in the communities that do have programs not all of the eligible children attend. There is another solution that many working parents have found attractive.
MIR-A-CARE is proud to announce a national telephone reassurance service for these so called “latchkey kids”. This automated calling program has been developed to place calls to these home alone children and check-in on them. This system will make up to five (5) calls a day per child. Before we start calling, the parents and MIR-A-CARE have set up procedures that comply with safety concerns and notification requirements. The child responds with a touch tone. If there is a problem a staff person calls to check on the child and makes notifications as needed following the agreed to procedures.
This calling system will provide enhanced security to home alone children. It also gives the parent piece of mind that their children are home and safe. If a problem is discovered the parent knows that we will take appropriate measures to correct it no matter what it is. This calling system is a distinctive combination of high tech and personal service. This calling system is unique and believed to be the only such system of this type available in America for home alone children.
