Gary's Story

Reduce the worry of living alone
Salina Regional Health Center Lifeline is a personal emergency response service that allows seniors and medically challenged individuals to live independently, while giving them access to help 24 hours per day.

Home is where the heart is
Your home is where you're most comfortable, surrounded by everything that's familiar. But for seniors and other medically challenged individuals, it is estimated that more than half of all falls that result in injury happen at home.

Lifeline can help you maintain your independence, and also give your family peace of mind.

Lifeline provides quick access to help, 24 hours a day
Lifeline is an easy-to-use medical alert service designed to reduce the risk of living alone. In the event of a fall or emergency, help is available at the push of a button. Press your Personal Help Button and you're connected directly to a highly trained Personal Response Associate, who will assess your situation. They can determine whether you require a visit from a neighbor or a family member, and can contact them for you.

If you need emergency services, they can dispatch assistance, retrieve relevant medical information from your profile, and even let emergency personnel know if you have a pet, all while you're on the line.

Every second counts
In an emergency, delayed medical care can jeopardize your recovery. If you are alone, you never know how long it will be before someone realizes you need help. Having access to help at the push of a button can reduce these risks.

Price: $35/month for a basic unit. $40/month for a telephone unit. $49 installation fee
