The Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert option offers all the benefits of the Philips Standard Lifeline Medical Alert Service with the additional automatic call for help service when a fall is detected.
Each year in the United States, one out of every three adults age 65 and older falls, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Among seniors, falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths, nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma. For many, falls threaten their ability to live independently.
When fall victims receive help in a timely manner, the potential costs of extended treatment, rehabilitation and supported living are reduced.
With the AutoAlert option, fall victims can receive assistance in a timely fashion when a fall is detected, even if they are unable to push their help button due to loss of consciousness, becoming immobilized, forgetting or even not considering pushing their button.
Palomar Health Lifeline is a program of Palomar Health Home Care Services. The free installation is available to residents who live in North San Diego County and in immediate surrounding areas.
