Helping You Stay Independent
Lifeline is an easy and convenient way to keep your independence but still get assistance when you need it.
You're Never Alone
Do you want to keep your independence, but are worried about being alone when you need assistance? Lifeline is a medical alert system that sends you help with the push of a button.
This small device, worn around the neck or on the wrist, is connected to your telephone line. If you need assistance, a simple push of the button automatically calls the Response Center, which stands by to ensure your well-being 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
When you push the button, a trained staff member will call you to see what you need. They will then contact a nearby friend or family member to assist you further if necessary. For more serious situations, they will dispatch an ambulance or police.

How do I get Lifeline?
- Generally, you must cover the cost of Lifeline. Medicare does not consider Lifeline a medical necessity.
- A doctor's referral is not needed. Lifeline is available to anyone for a variety of needs at their own prerogative.
