Lifeline Medical Alert Service-FREE Activation in December

Mokena, IL- (Dec. 12, 2012) – Lifeline Medical Alert Service, a part of Presence Health, and the largest medical alert service in the State of Illinois, will offer free service activation of its medical alert services during the month of December.

Lifeline is a simple, wireless device worn as a pendant or on the wrist that allows the wearer to summon help with the push of a button from within their home, any time day or night. The button connects you to a trained Lifeline response associate, who quickly accesses your profile and dispatches help within 30 seconds, in one of 170 different languages.

“We know that medical alert services save lives, but they are not all the same,” said Carrie Shearer, Director, Presence Care@Home. “It’s important to know the differences between them. We are not an alarm company that just sends emergency services. Our customers can personalize their levels of support and include relatives or neighbors as responders as well.”

No long term contracts required. Service is paid for on a monthly basis for as long as it’s needed. Free 24/7 technical support. Cost is $28.50 month.

Call 877-612-1700 for information.

The Life Connection Division of Resurrection Healthcare and Provena Healthcare, now joined as Presence Health, offers a range of care, services and support options including Holy Family Medical Center, a long term acute care hospital (LTACH), @Home Technology, Home Health, Private Duty Home Care,  Independent Living, Assisted Living, Day Centers, Short-term Rehabilitation, Skilled Nursing Homes, Hospice, Alzheimer’s and related dementia, Community & Supportive Living and pharmacy.
