Living at home for as long as possible is a goal that most of us share. Unfortunately, we all age and changes in our stability as well as our ability to function mentally and physically age as well. This leaves us faced with the challenges of not only getting help when it’s needed, but getting help quickly.
Caregiving for a family member of friend certainly is not an easy task these days. Life's fast pace makes it harder to balance everyday commitments to work and family. You want to be there as much as possible, yet studies have shown that hour after hour of continuous caregiving can lead to exhaustion and depression, and actually jeopardizing the security of your loved one. Developing a plan can be difficult but the consequences of not having a plan can be extremely costly.
Philips Lifeline is the #1 medical alert service. It is easy to use and designed to reduce the risks involved with living alone. In the event of a fall or emergency, help is ALWAYS available at the push of a button. The subscriber can summons help by simply pressing a portable, lightweight, waterproof button worn as a pendant or wrist strap. The Lifeline Personal Help Button connects the person in need to a trained Personal Response Associate who can send help immediately. These trained associates are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Here is how Lifeline Medical Alert works:
- Summon Help- when help is needed the button is pressed which activated the CarePartner Communicator
- Professional Intervention- The Care Partner Communicator dials the Lifeline Response Center and establishes two-way voice communication.
- Personal Response- Quickly, a Lifeline Response Associate accessed your profile and asses the situation
- Closed Loop- the Associate then contacts a neighbor, loved one or emergency services, based on the specific need. The Lifeline Response Associate will follow up to ensure the situation has been handled.
