Feel more secure at home with Lifeline
Studies show that 55 percent of all falls by seniors take place in the home. Who will be there for them should a fall or other medical emergency occur? With Lifeline, each subscriber can instantly connect with a trained professional at Saint Francis Medical Center with the push of a button.

More than 500,000 seniors trust the Phillips Lifeline service to respond to their needs at any time of the day or night. Lifeline is the nation’s No. 1 medical alert service and is recommended by thousands of leading hospitals and healthcare organizations across the country.

How Lifeline works
Lifeline is a simple, wireless device, worn as a pendant or wristband, that allows the wearer to summon help with the push of a button from anywhere in their home – any time of the day or night. The button instantly connects to a trained professional, who quickly assesses the situation and dispatches help.

Getting help quickly can reduce unnecessary suffering and could make a real difference in recovery. Anyone interested in Lifeline can call Jodie Reeh, Saint Francis Medical Center Lifeline coordinator, at (308) 398-5660.
