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
- 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.
- Professional intervention. The Lifeline response center associate accesses your profile and assesses the situation and then establishes two-way voice communication.
- 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.
