Helping your Elderly Parents, Helping You

Whether or not they live with you, there may come a time when parents need help with day-to-day activites.  An easy-to-use personal monitoring service called Lifeline can give older adults who live at home the independence and confidence that someone can help if there are unexpected emergencies.

Lifeline is a waterproof  "personal help button" that is worn around the neck like a necklace, or on the wrist as a wristband.  When the person needs help, they just press the button.  Within seconds, a certified Lifeline monitor responds, assesses the situation and summons appropriate help-whether it is a neighbor, a relative or an ambulance.

A Lakeland professional answers the call.  The responder will have instant access to the caller's health history and personal profile on the computer screen in front of them.

Lifeline cost about a dollar a day.  No equiptment purchase is necessary.  Lakeland offers Lifeline service in Berrien, Cass and VanBuren counties.

Lifeline also allows the older adult to answer the telephone without having to rush to grab a handset, possibly avoiding a fall.  There is peace of mind knowing help is available 24/7.  Lifeline can be programmed with voice-recorded messages that can be set to playback at specific times during the day, during the week or just one time.

For more information, call Lakeland Lifeline Services at (269)985-4413.
