Lifeline Medical Alert Service
A personal medical alert system designed to offer peace of mind and security to the elderly and their concerned family members. It allows many seniors to remain in their homes, in familiar surroundings. The communicator device is connected to the subscriber's phone, and a portable help button is either worn as a necklace or around the wrist. If help is needed, one would press the Personal help Button. Or with AutoAlert, the pendant button detects a fall and automatically dials the monitoring center. Within seconds, the call will be answered by our operators. The Lifeline Response Center is there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
