Lifeline Emergency Response System

Toll Free: 888-863-2771

Vital emergency response & individual support

The Lifeline Personal Emergency Response System gives individuals living alone a sense of independence and security by offering medical emergency response at the touch of a button.

The Lifeline innovative system uses a two-way voice communicator and waterproof personal help button that can be worn as a necklace or wristband.

In the event of an emergency at home, the wearer presses the button, sending a signal to a Lifeline Call Center dispatcher. The dispatcher evaluates the urgency of the situation and calls either a responder listed on the individual's care plan or emergency medical personnel if necessary.

This innovative, convenient technology allows immediate emergency assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
