Lifeline Emergency Response

One press of the lightweight, waterproof help button activates a small in-home unit that puts the subscriber in touch with a caring Lifeline monitor who is there to help, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Help Button Telephone Device Communicator

In response to consumer requests, Lifeline has improved its equipment to provide more than emergency response. At the press of the Lifeline button a subscriber can use the home communicator as a speakerphone. This feature enables people to answer the phone without rushing to pick up the handset.

Lifeline also has equipment to provide peace of mind for people with limited physical abilities, allowing instant access to communication, personal safety and telephone answering at the blink of any eye, a roll of the head or a puff on a straw.

Lifeline is the only personal emergency response service in the industry to offer the Auto Alert button.  This waterproof button is worn around the neck.  If a subscriber falls and cannot press the button it will automatically send a call for help.

Knowing that early intervention is possible in an emergency, Lifeline provides peace of mind for the subscriber and family members. Subscribers can maintain their independence with Lifeline and are reassured that help is available if needed.
