Here for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The Philips Lifeline Response Center
When you or a loved one is alone and needs help, you want fast assistance from someone who cares. Every one of our products provides direct access to the Philips Lifeline Response Center, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our Trained Care Specialists are just seconds away. Our Response Center, which supports multiple languages, answers whenever the personal alert button is pressed. Lifeline systems with automatic fall detection enable Trained Care Specialists to call out if they receive a fall detected alert, whether the button is pressed or not.1 If we cannot make verbal contact after a fall alert signal is sent by the Lifeline system, we may call emergency services.
