Living independently at home is extremely important to many seniors. Through our many services and programs, as well as our partnership with Philips Lifeline medical alert system, RVNA makes the choice to live at home a secure and responsible one.
Easy-to-use and unobtrusive, Philips Lifeline has offered peace of mind to seniors and their families for over 40 years by allowing users to access help when they need it with just the press of button.
Philips Lifeline Options
Philips offers three options:
- HomeSafe Standard: for use inside of the home, users can access help with the push of a button when they choose to.
- HomeSafe with AutoAlert: for use inside of the home, help is accessed when a user pushes the button for help or when the Lifeline system detects a fall or emergency. This added layer of protection is a good choice for those with a history, risk or fear of falling.
- GoSafe with AutoAlert: for use both inside and outside of the home, GoSafe with AutoAlert accesses help when a user pushes the button for help, or when the system detects a fall or emergency. This is a good choice for those with an active lifestyle.
How Lifeline Works
Getting Help is Easy
If you need help, you push the personal help button, worn either around your neck or wrist.
Your Lifeline™ device – either the Basic Unit or the CarePartner Telephone – is activated and automatically dials the Lifeline™ Response Center.
A professionally-trained Personal Response Associate (based in the United States) will answer your call and have instant access to your complete profile and information. The response associate will assess your situation immediately and will send the help you need right away. Whether it is a designated neighbor, family member or emergency service, Lifeline™ will get you the help you need.
The LifeLine Device
The CarePartner Basic Unit works with your existing telephone and offers you all the benefits of 24-hour personal response, with two-way voice communication. The unit features:
- An adjustable high volume speaker phone
- Remote call answering which allows you to pick up the phone by pushing your help button
- 15-hour battery back-up in the event of a power failure
- Monthly test call reminders
