Lifeline literally a life-saver

I am an 84-year-old widow who lives alone. When my husband died in 1985, I got the “Lifeline” through the local hospital. On three separate occasions, I have pushed the emergency button and the response has been fantastic. Within less than 10 minutes, the paramedics have been at my door. On Feb. 15, I fell and could not get up. Lifeline called my responder to unlock the door to let the paramedics in. I do not have to use the phone at all The emergency button alerts the emergency response line that I need help. I feel so secure having Lifeline. I wear the emergency button 24 hours a day – in the shower, when I go to bed, and all the time in between.

I honestly believe it has literally saved my life.
