Hospital officers Lifeline servicesMarch 22, 2019
JASPER — Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center offers Lifeline, a medical alert assistance service for those who wish to live independently in their homes while maintaining an immediate emergency link to Lifeline Systems Call Center, where trained personnel can talk to the resident immediately and activate the subscriber’s emergency response plan if needed.
With Lifeline, the resident has a communicator unit attached to the telephone and a portable button that is worn around the neck or on the wrist. If assistance is needed, the portable button is pushed, which sends an electronic message through the telephone to the Lifeline Systems Call Center.
Lifeline also offers additional services. Lifeline with AutoAlert provides all of the benefits and functionality of the standard service while also providing an added layer of protection by automatically placing a call for help if a fall is detected and the subscriber cannot press his or her personal help button because he or she is disorientated, immobilized or unconscious after a fall.
HomeSafe Wireless system is another solution that expands Lifeline service to those who do not have a home phone line. The HomeSafe systems leverage a wireless communicator that connects users to a 24-hour emergency response center.
GoSafe is a mobile personal emergency response system that includes two-way voice communication from a GoSafe pendant and utilizes six location technologies designed to help locate the user.
Lifeline has a one-time installation fee of $50 and costs starting at $39 per month after installation.
For more information about these services or to subscribe, call the hospital’s lifeline facilitator at 812-996-2399 or toll-free at 800-852-7279, ext. 2399. Press Option 1 after calling.
