Lifeline is the original personal emergency response system which provides peace of mind to thousands of older adults and their caregivers. It offers the security of being in touch with someone when immediate help is needed.
CHI Memorial Lifeline offers the only medical alert service in the area with AutoAlert fall-detection technology, meaning help is on the way if you suffer a fall. AutoAlert pendants contain unique sensors programmed to measure changes in a person’s height and orientation to a horizontal position and the velocity of those changes. When a person goes about their daily routine, such as sitting in a chair or getting out of bed, AutoAlert registers that movement as normal activity. If a person falls and doesn’t get up on their own after 30 seconds, AutoAlert automatically places a call to the CHI Memorial Lifeline 24/7 Response Center.
AutoAlert has proven to be 97% accurate in fall detection from a standing position and is ideal for seniors who live alone. Patients with a history of stroke, diabetes, seizures and other health conditions that put them at an increased risk of falling benefit from the technology.
Our new GoSafe Mobile System pendant uses 6 locator programs, has a microphone and speaker in the pendant and has a fall detection feature.
CHI Lifeline’s monthly fee for basic service is $34.95. Please call (423) 495-8774 for pricing on Lifeline with AutoAlert and GoSafe.
