Q: Do you install car seats or check car seat installations?

Q: What number do I call in the case of a non-emergency situation?
A: Any resident who needs help should call 9-1-1 and the dispatcher will determine the needed response. This would be the same whether the patient was suffering from a serious injury or illness or just needed help up the stairs or from the residence to the car. Resident assistance is a provided service and of course is not billed to residents but recorded as “citizen assist.” We understand that needs can change based on medical conditions, circumstances, finances, etc. and if more regular or frequent help is needed our paramedics will forward that information to community based programs such as PLOWS for help. PLOWS Council on Aging is a nonprofit social service organization serving individuals 60 years of age and older in Palos, Lemont, Orland, and Worth Townships.
