Buying Guide: Learn About Our Medical Alert Systems
Philips Lifeline is there for you and your loved ones.
Getting older doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. If you’re an older adult, or a family member who can’t be there every minute, you probably worry about falling or another situation requiring help.
We can help.
For 40 years, Philips Lifeline has developed and continues to iterate the most innovative line of personal alert systems. Our products and services have helped millions of seniors to stay independent by providing access to help whenever and wherever it’s needed5.
Lifeline personal alert systems for seniors
At the heart of all of our services is a discreet personal alert button available in a pendant or wristband that connects you to the Philips Lifeline Response Center at any hour of any day of the entire year. Our solutions also enable two-way communication with our carefully trained Response Associates.
Seniors with medical conditions are more likely to fall, and even healthy and active older adults could take a tumble. It’s scary to think about what happens when we fall – and about being so disoriented, immobilized or unconscious that we can’t even call for help. Yet in 30 percent of serious falls, seniors can’t or don’t push the alert button.
Lifeline’s AutoAlert technology can help ease these concerns, detecting falls and calling for help even if you or your loved one can’t.1
Consider the following when choosing a personal alert system:
- Do you or your parent live alone?
- Do you or your parent primarily stay around the home or live a more active lifestyle with lots of outside activities?
- Do you or your parent have any chronic medical conditions, like COPD, diabetes or cognitive impairment?
- Are you worried about falls and not being able to call for help?
Factor in your answers as you evaluate the best solution for you and your family.
Lifeline products for seniors who stay mostly at home
About one-third of seniors living at home fall at least once a year, and most of these falls happen when an older adult with a physical or medical condition encounters something like stairs, electrical cords — even a ringing phone. Our Lifeline HomeSafe products connect immediately to our Response Center with the push of the personal alert button on a pendant or wristband. HomeSafe with AutoAlert can even contact our Response Center if you’re unconscious or unable to press the button yourself, if it detects a fall.1

Don’t wait for an emergency
It’s hard to think about getting older. It’s hard to think about what could happen in a moment when we’re not there to help a loved one. But planning ahead is critical to avoid preventable health impacts and unnecessary medical expenses. The best time to buy a medical alert device is before an emergency.
It’s easy to preserve your (or your parent’s) independence and control without sacrificing personal health and safety. Our personal medical alert systems provide seniors with access to help in an emergency, thereby helping to ease the concerns of family members.
We’re there for you – or for your parent when you can’t be.
