How Does Kind Call Work?
Kind Call is a simple system to use. For your convenience, calls may be tailored for your individual wants and needs, which may include multiple calls in a day or calls only on certain days of the week. Each day at a time designated by the member, a phone call is placed to the home via a computer at the Municipal Services Center. The member simply picks up the phone, listens to the message, and presses "9" if everything is okay. 


If the member does not answer the phone, the computer will call back several times within a half-hour. If there is still no response, a member designated "key holder" will be contacted to check on the member's well-being. In the event that a key holder cannot be reached, then the Upper Arlington safety forces will be notified to check on the member.
