Our community doesn’t do this as whole but individuals do check in with other 
individuals. They are personal arrangements so they are very individual.

From a friend in living in a Kendal community, one of several reasons everyone 
is required to eat one meal a day in the dining room (or have a meal delivered) 
is that it is at least one check a day on whether someone is up and about.

One practice in a section of units that opened on a common hallway was that 
each resident put a ceramic or wood sculpture outside their door each morning 
when they woke up. If all the sculptures were out by 9, they took them all in. 
If one wasn’t, someone would knock on their door to check.

It was effective and developed the habit of checking in everyday. Not just 
checkin on someone else but checking one’s self in. Waving your flag.
