“Your Daily Hello” is a web-based service started by two Lakebay women, Lori Deacon and Leah Perfect, that checks in on members daily via email. If they do not get a response within 24 hours, a text is sent, and then a phone call. If the member doesn’t pick up, the service calls the fire department or police to make a wellness check.
