About the Program
Radford’s senior citizen population is growing rapidly. Sheriff Armentrout created the Good Morning Radford program to brighten their day, while also ensuring their well-being. Once a senior joins the program, a deputy or trained volunteer calls him or her each morning. These short friendly telephone calls ensure the senior is not experiencing health-related difficulties. If repeated calls go unanswered, a deputy is dispatched to their residence to check on them.
We currently have 17 seniors enrolled in our Good Morning Radford family and we have had numerous inquiries about the program. Alleghany Township, PA recently instituted its own Good Morning program which is modeled after ours.
