Lifeline Medical Alert Services
What is a medical alert service? Friendly, caring support that helps older adults get assistance quickly in a medical emergency or when help is needed. Since 1974, Lifeline has helped millions of older adults and those with disabilities to live at home with more confidence. Their families and health providers have greater peace of mind knowing that Lifeline service can help summon help when needed.
The service is simple to use. When you need help, just press the waterproof personal help button worn around your neck as a pendant or on your wrist. Within seconds a certified Lifeline Response Associate responds, assesses the situation and summons help, whether it is a neighbor, relative or ambulance.
How do you know if it is the right time for you to consider a medical alert service for yourself or someone you care for? Things to consider: if you are alone for several hours during the day and/or night, have you fallen or been afraid of falling in your home. Have you been hospitalized or been to the Emergency room in the past year? Do you have at least one of these chronic ailments (heart disease, stroke, COPD, osteoporosis, diabetes, arthritis)? Do you use a device to assist you in ambulating? Would a medical alert service provide peace of mind for your loved ones? If your answers are a resounding “yes” to these questions, then, it may be the right time to consider a Lifeline Medical Alert Service. Both your and your family’s peace of mind is worth it to help you to continue living independently.
