If you choose, a member of your home health care team can help set up in your home a system called Lifeline. This is a simple, press-of-a-button technology that
- Activates an in-home unit called a communicator.
- Puts you in touch with someone who can help you 24 hours per day.
- Knows exactly what to do to get help to you if you cannot speak when you press the Lifeline button.
There is also the option of wearing a medical alert pendant that can call for help when you cannot.
Additionally, Lifeline offers a medication dispensing service that makes it easy to know what medication to take and what time to take it.
