Lifeline personal emergency response system units bring peace of mind to individuals and families in the Greene County Medical Center service area.   

Lifeline is an easy-to-use medical alert service designed to reduce the risk of living alone.  In the event of a fall or emergency, help is available at the push of a button.  The Lifeline personal help button connects you to a trained personal response associate who can send help quickly through two-way voice communication - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Lifeline can help you maintain your independence with at home and on-the-go options, giving you and your family peace of mind.

How Lifeline Works

  1. Summon help.  When you need help, just press your personal help button and the assigned helper will be notified, whether that is a family member, caregiver, neighbor or emergency services.
  2. Professional intervention.  The Lifeline response center associate accesses your profile and assesses the situation and then establishes two-way voice communication.
  3. Closed loop.  The associate then contacts a neighbor, loved one or emergency services, based on your specific needs.  The Lifeline response associate will follow-up to confirm that help arrived.
