The system works by having a card placed on your doorknob before you go to bed. If the card is still there later in the morning, your “buddy” will check on you to make sure you are OK, or if you need help.
Silvera’s Buddy System helps to alert neighbours and staff of a potential health problem or emergency. Under the Buddy System, if you’re living in a Silvera community, you’re not alone.
This is just one way Silvera helps residents of subsidized seniors housing maintain quality of life and connect as a community.
