This is your life. And you want to live it the way you want - in the comfort of your own home where you're surrounded by the memories of a lifetime; where you can easily do things the way you like.
Lifeline gives you the confidence and freedom to live on your own because there is always someone standing by to help whenever you need it 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. One press of your lightweight, waterproof help button puts you in touch with a caring Lifeline Monitor - even if you can't reach the phone!
Lifeline takes the time to learn all about you before you have an emergency so that when you press you help button, the Lifeline Monitor will know your special needs and interests before you say a word, even if you can't speak, the Monitor knows exactly what to do. If needed, an ambulance will be dispatched immediately. Or if you just need a friend or relative to assist you, we'll contact them for you.
Your health and well being is our primary concern. With Lifeline, your loved ones can rest assured that you're safe, secure, and happy at home.
The price of Lifeline service is surprisingly affordable. And there's no need to make a long-term commitment. Join those who are living independently in their homes thanks to Lifeline. Why wait?

Lifeline with AutoAlert can detect falls-with a high rate of detection and a low rate of false alarms-and automatically call for help.
The Rutherford Regional Lifeline program is proud to introduce Lifeline with AutoAlert, an enhanced medical alert service. This integrated solution offers an added layer of protection by combining the industry-leading Lifeline medical alert service with automatic fall detection capabilities. Lifeline with AutoAlert features the only pendant-style help button that can automatically call for help if a fall is detected and a senior is unable to push his or her help button. According to an internal laboratory study of simulated falls, Lifeline with AutoAlert detected 95 percent of many types of falls and had a low rate of false alarms.
Lifeline with AutoAlert is designed to help reduce the risk of long lie times. If a fall victim receives help more quickly, that may reduce emotional distress and potential costs of extended treatment, rehabilitation and supported living. With AutoAlert, if a fall is detected, subscribers still have the opportunity to receive quick access to assistance even in situations where they can't push their button, for example, if they lose consciousness, become immobilized, forget to push their button or won't push their button because they feel they can manage the situation independently. Just as important, the service can provide added confidence and peace of mind to the 22 million seniors who fear falling.
