In 2013, Quinte Health Care formed a partnership with Philips Lifeline to provide a service to the community that enables our patients to live confidently and independently in their own homes with the reassurance that help is available at the push of a button. While we strive to enhance care for seniors in our communities, we would like to remind you about the medical alert service that allows an individual to summon help any time of the day or night.
The Philips Lifeline can be worn on a wristband or as a pendant and with the press of a button, a trained Personal Response Centre Associate will ensure help arrives quickly. The Lifeline service is ideal for anyone who:
- Lives alone or is alone a good part of the day
- Is at risk for falls
- Manages a medical condition or is recovering from surgery
- Has a caregiver who needs greater peace of mind
A Lifeline community representative is available for an in-home consultation by calling 1-855-579-5959. More information is also available on their website at www.lifeline.ca.
