Among seniors, falls are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma. Close to 50 per cent of seniors can’t get up from a fall without help and lying on the floor for an extended period of time can lead to serious complications.
Providence Lifeline, operated by Philips Lifeline, is a personal monitoring service that allows seniors to live safely and independently in their own homes. Using the latest technology, Lifeline provides medically ‘at-risk’ individuals, or those who want a ‘sense of security’, the comfort of knowing that professional help is available 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year.
With the simple press of a small button or an automated signal from the ‘AutoAlert’ system, your loved one will get the help they need from professionally trained monitors dedicated to respond to Lifeline emergency calls.
The Lifeline service can be set up quickly and easily in your home.
