Do you know an older adult who lives alone? Are you afraid they may fall and not be able to get to the phone for help? Port Huron Hospital 55 Plus offers an exceptional service that provides peace of mind and immediate help, the Philips Lifeline.
Lifeline is an easy to use medical alert service designed to reduce the risk of living alone. In the event of a fall or an emergency, help is available at the push of a button.
The Lifeline Personal Help Button connects the wearer to a trained personal response associate who can send help quickly, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More than 3,000 hospitals and healthcare providers across the country offer Philips Lifeline service. The service is affordable and easy to use. It can be an invaluable service that enhances safety and independence for older people who want to stay in their own homes or apartments.
During the month of December, Port Huron Hospital 55 Plus will provide installation of Lifeline at no cost to the subscriber. This is a $30 savings for the user. Questions about Lifeline may be directed to Ann Poirier at Port Huron Hospital 55 Plus, at 810-989-3121.
