EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEM
Lifeline is a home emergency response system for individuals needing a way to summon help, with little effort or moving around. Through Loring Hospital, clients may have a lifeline installed and monitored by local staff. The system is connected by phone to the hospital nurses station, who can, if the help button is pushed, talk directly to the client through the speaker phone. If assistance is needed a responder is called or an ambulance is dispatched.
The newest models also have a reminder feature. This option will chime and play a recorded message to remind the client to complete a needed activity, like take medicines at a certain time. Up to six messages may be recorded for the day.
Another option is hands free answering of an in-coming phone call. If the client is getting a phone call, they can press the button they wear and it will open the speaker phone feature. The client may carry on the conversation without picking up the receiver. The connection will automatically be disconnected when the caller hangs up their receiver.
The piece of mind of being able to get help quickly in any emergency is priceless to both family and the clients.
