Description

JFSA Lifeline is a medical system which enables a person to get emergency help at home. The JFSA Lifeline monitoring unit is connected through the existing telephone line. The system works as follows:

 

  • The individual wears a help button, either as a pendant or on a wristband. In an emergency, the subscriber pushes the Help button and a signal is sent to the 24 hour monitoring center at Philips Lifeline.

 

  • A trained Personal Response Associate will call out to the person to determine what kind of help maybe needed. If the Associate is unable to hear the individual, a family member, neighbor, or the local police or fire department is contacted to assist.

 

  • If there is a true emergency and the person is transported to a hospital, family is contacted, even if they live out of town. JFSA Lifeline provides security and peace of mind for the individual and family.

 

  • Philips Lifeline is the only medical alert system approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
