With Lifeline — Help Is Just A Push Of A Button Away
Seniors in the Henry County area have immediate access to help thanks to the Henry County Health Center Lifeline in Mt. Pleasant.
Lifeline is a personal response service that gives seniors immediate access to help whenever they need it. By simply pressing the Personal Help Button worn around the neck or wrist a Lifeline subscriber is instantly connected to a professional monitor who will assess the caller’s need and respond appropriately, whether it’s calling a loved one, neighbor or emergency services.
Since 1985, Henry County Health Center has offered the Lifeline service to many of the elders in the area. This is what one subscriber has said about the service: “It gives me security when I am by myself. I know if I press the button someone will answer me. One time I fell when I was alone and Lifeline contacted my family and they came to help me immediately. Not only do I feel secure, but it also gives my family peace of mind.”
Lifeline helps bolster seniors confidence to live independently in their own homes. The added benefit of this service is that it gives family members and caregivers peace of mind, knowing that help is there even when they are not.
For just the cost of a cup of coffee a day, the Lifeline service can be installed within 24-hours. To learn more about this service call Henry County Health Center at 319-385-6164 or 319-385-3141.
