Framingham, MA (PRWEB) July 6, 2005
TodayÂs Caregiver, the first national magazine for all family and professional caregivers, has awarded Lifeline Systems lifelinesys.com a 2005 Caregiver Friendly Award for LifelineÂs CarePartner Telephone with Reminders service. The Caregiver Friendly Awards are designed to recognize those outstanding products, services, books and media created with the needs and best interests of the family caregiver in mind.
Lifeline Systems has been the leading provider of personal 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.
ÂMore caregivers trust Lifeline to care for their loved ones than all other medical alert services combined,Â commented Deb Citrin, Lifeline Vice President of Marketing. ÂThe Caregiver Friendly Award touches upon one reason why Lifeline is preferred by professional and family caregivers alike Â itÂs the way we care about every subscriber as if they were family members of our own.Â
With the simple press of a 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, reviews the individual's personal and medical profile, assesses his or her situation and then notifies a family member, neighbor, or appropriate support and medical response team as the situation requires. In addition to these life-saving features, the Lifeline CarePartner Telephone can be easily programmed to deliver personalized voice messages used to remind the senior that it is time take medication, keep an appointment, or to simply provide a message of love and support.
ÂThe average caregiver is responsible for over $40,000 in health related expenditures each year, in either personal or directed funds,Â commented Gary Barg, TodayÂs Caregiver Editor-in-Chief. ÂThis award is designed to help family caregivers recognize and reward those organizations who will care for them in as committed a manner as they care for their loved ones.Â
Lifeline Systems along with the other winners will be profiled in the September/October issue of TodayÂs Caregiver and on the magazineÂs website, http://www.caregiver.com In addition to the magazine, Caregiver Media Group also produces the Fearless Caregiver Conferences and ÂThe Fearless CaregiverÂ book, which teaches caregivers how to become their loved oneÂs fearless advocates within the healthcare system.
