It’s Lifeline with AutoAlert!

7/23/2014

Scotland County Hospital Lifeline Program can offer Philips Lifeline with the AutoAlert personal help button.

 SCH Lifeline Program has provided home monitoring services to our rural communities since the mid 1980’s.  Our coverage area serves Clark, Knox, Schuyler and Scotland Counties.  The Lifeline unit has provided a “life line” to many subscribers over the years.  Some calls are for simple needs, others may be life threatening situations sometimes due to falls.

 Unfortunately, the thing about a fall is that you never know when it’s going to happen.  You can become disoriented, immobilized, or perhaps unconscious and unable to press the conventional Lifeline button for help. Philips Lifeline now offers an alternative help button that can respond for you.  It’s Lifeline with AutoAlert.  AutoAlert is the first (worn-around-the-neck) pendant-style - help button that can automatically place a call on your behalf for help if it detects a fall and you’re unable to push the button yourself.

 AutoAlert detects more than 95% of falls and can automatically place a call for help if it detects a fall.* If you or your loved one has a history, a risk, or a fear of falling, Lifeline with AutoAlert can be an excellent choice.

*Based on the number of detected falls that have been reported to Philips Lifeline by U.S AutoAlert subscribers for the period of January 2012 through July 2012. Undetectable falls can include a gradual slide from a seated position – such as from a wheelchair – which may not register as a fall.  If able, you should always push your button if you need help

You can find out much more by contacting Lifeline at this toll-free number (800-380-3111) or Contact your SCH Lifeline Program Manager,  Brenda Prather at (660-341-5836)
