Lifeline is an easy-to-use personal response service that ensures that older adults living at home get quick assistance whenever it is needed, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The service is simple to use. When you need help, you just press the waterproof Personal Help Button you wear as a pendant or wristband. Within seconds, a certified Lifeline monitor responds, who has instant access to your pertinent health history and personal profile on his or her computer screen. The Lifeline monitor assesses the situation and summons appropriate help, whether it is a neighbor, a relative, or an ambulance.
Lifeline is NOT just for medical emergencies. The service also allows you to:
- Answer the telephone without having to rush to grab a handset and risk falling.
- Maintain your peace of mind, knowing that help is just a press-of-a-button away.
- Enjoy a stronger sense of well-being.
For a little more than a dollar a day, you get the Lifeline Personal Response Service. You are not required to buy any equipment or make a long-term commitment.
