    Is the word 'there' correct in the following case?

    Teachers,

    I'll be at home, call me there.
    I'll be at my office, call me there.
    I'll be at John's, call me there.
    Let's say that you're leaving a message that you will be at a certain place later on and asking someone to give you a call at that place while you are at that place, is the word 'there' proper?

    I'm at home , call me there.
    I'm at my office, call me there.
    I'm at John's, call me there.
    Similarly, you're leaving a message saying that you are at a certain place now and asking someone to give you a call at that place. Is word 'there' proper? Or should it be 'here' instead?

    Thank you so much.

    Hello bouji

    I'll be at home, call me there.
    I'll be at my office, call me there.
    I'll be at John's, call me there.


    The following are also fine:

    I'm at home, call me there/at that place/at home/here.
    I'm at my office, call me there/(same as above).
    I'm at John's, call me there/at John's/(same as above).
