Lifeline

Lifeline gives you the confidence and freedom to live on your own, because there’s always someone standing by to help whenever you need it, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Whenever you need help, one press of your lightweight, waterproof help button activates a small in-home unit called a communicator. It puts you in touch with a caring Lifeline Response Center, and a staff member talks to you to find out what kind of help you need.

The staff member will call one of your friends, neighbors or relatives, who will come to your home to check on you. If you need more professional help, 911 will be called for you immediately. And, if you press your button and can’t speak, the Response Center staff know exactly what to do.

Lifeline takes the time to learn all about you, so when you press your help button, the highly trained Lifeline monitor who answers your call knows your special needs and interests before you say a word.

With Lifeline, your loved ones can rest assured that you’re safe, secure and happy in your home. And you don’t have to wait until you have an emergency to call Lifeline. We encourage you to check in with us every month just so you know we’re here.

All equipment is supplied by Lifeline. For less than a dollar a day we provide peace of mind to our subscribers.

The Lifeline service is locally owned and operated by Olympic Medical Home Health. For more information, call (360) 417-7315 or e-mail landerson@olympicmedical.org.
