Framingham, MA (PRWEB) May 3, 2005
On MotherÂs Day, the day set aside to honor all mothers, some womenÂs senior status merits extra love and attention beyond the flowers, cards and candy. The gift of a special pendant, a Lifeline personal help button, allows these older women to continue to live safely and independently in their own home, surrounded by the memories of a lifetime. By bringing a Lifeline personal emergency response system into their home, many older women are able to put off the difficulty and heart ache of having to leave their cherished possessions, friends and pets behind when they must move to an assisted living facility or nursing home.
Lifeline Systems has been the leading provider of personal emergency response services in the United States for over 30 years. Lifeline is the preferred provider of medical alert services to members of the Visiting Nurses Associations of America, and to thousands of leading doctors and hospitals. In addition, the Lifeline service is available through select chapters of the American Red Cross.
With the simple press of a waterproof button, at any time of the day or night, the user is quickly connected with a highly trained Lifeline Personal Response Associate. The Associate makes voice contact through the Lifeline speakerphone, reviews the individual's personal and medical profile, assesses her situation and then notifies a family member, neighbor, or appropriate support and medical response team as the situation requires.
ÂNot only does Lifeline help seniors retain their independence,Â says Lifeline Director of Marketing, Deb Citrin, Âbut we are constantly being told by family members that they themselves feel better knowing everything is all right, whether they have to leave Mom for just a few hours, or whether they must live some distance away.Â

Â Immediate response by caring and highly-trained Personal Response Associates Â24 hours a day/365 days a year
Â State-of-the-art equipment made by Lifeline
Â Lightweight, waterproof personal help button that can be worn as a pendant or on the wrist
