Lifeline is a 24 hours a day personal response system. You, as a subscriber, wear a small, waterproof personal help button either as a necklace or bracelet. If you need help, one punch of the help button will activate the Lifeline unit installed in your home. Working through your phone line, the Lifeline unit will put you in touch with a caring Lifeline monitor, who will then call for the help you need. This help may be from one of your responders, (friend, neighbor, or relative), or emergency personnel if needed. Lifeline units are installed and serviced locally.
