Are You Okay?

The Are You Okay program is currently offline due to technical difficulties. We hope to have this issue resolved very soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

This is a free service sponsored by the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office. The service is available to any resident of Bladen County who requests a daily telephone safety check. This service is designated for adults age 65 and over, and/or handicapped or home-bound persons of any age, social or economic condition. To request this service, simply telephone Sheryl Young at the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday at (910) 862-6960. She will answer any questions you may have and arrange for a home visit to obtain basic confidential information to begin the service.

Once you have been registered for the service, you will receive an automated call each day at a designated time. If there is no answer, you will be called two additional times. If there is still no answer, a law enforcement officer or other emergency personnel will be sent to your house to check on you.

This is a county wide project, supported by all law enforcement agencies, attempting to keep our elderly, handicapped and/or home-bound residents safe.
