Philips Lifeline Medical Alert Systems give protection and peace of mind to our patients who choose to have this special protection. The Visiting Nurse Association of Erie County is exclusively partnered with Philips Lifeline to bring the best in independent living technology to people in Erie county Pennsylvania. In Fact just today (October 7, 2015) we had a nurse visiting a patient who got the Philips Lifeline AutoAlert Pendant and she had this to say (& we quote)
“I am so pleased with Lifeline. I don’t know why I waited so long to get it.”
Qualified patients receive two months free Lifeline Service (including installation) when they are enrolled in the Visiting Nurse Association of Erie County’s Ready•Steady•Go Fall Prevention Program. Learn more here: http://www.erievna.org/fall-prevention/
Peace of mind in the event of an emergency can make living independently a possibility. Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert fall detection can help you get the help you request if it detects your fall even when you can’t alert us on your own. Our AutoAlert technology:
—detects more than 95% of falls
—reports on twice as many falls as standard medical alert devices
—is the most widely adopted and proven fall detection in the US
Confidence, reliability, and peace of mind are qualities that you deserve when caring for an elderly parent or a loved one, and they’re qualities that can be found with Lifeline.
Fall statistics among senior adults are unsettling: one out of three older adults (those aged 65 or older) falls each year and many experience lacerations, bone fractures, and head trauma as a result*. Without immediate help, these elderly individuals may also suffer prolonged pain, emotional distress, or secondary medical problems like dehydration, pneumonia, renal failure, or pressure ulcers. The good news is that Lifeline can help your loved one get access to care, even when you can’t be there.
