Lifeline Emergency Response

Lifeline Subscriber"Lifeline gives me freedom and peace of mind to go about my daily life knowing that help is immediately available if I need it.” 

-Lifeline subscriber

Lifeline emergency response system allows people to continue living independently in their homes with the security of knowing they can quickly access help if they need it.

By pressing a lightweight, waterproof alert button worn around the neck or wrist, subscribers can signal Lifeline monitors who determine what kind of help is needed and call for it immediately.

Installation fee of $95 is waived with a prescription from your physician.  Your physician can fax the prescription to our office at 770-219-8898 without making a visit.  The Monthly Monitoring fee is $45 with no long-term contract to sign.  All service calls are made at no charge to the subscriber.

"Volunteers are critical to the success of our Lifeline program," says Dianne Appling, Lifeline coordinator. "Thanks to their service, our subscribers can choose to stay safely in their homes without having to worry about how they would contact help in an emergency."
