This year 13.5 million people, 65 and older will fall. To help keep seniors safe at home, VNA Watch offers a personal monitoring device developed by Philips Lifeline that provides quick access to help with the push of a button. Lifeline can be worn as a pendant or on the wrist and includes a transmitter to summon fast assistance, 24 hours a day.
Upon answering the call for help, an experienced listener will immediately assess the situation and take appropriate action, whether it is calling a neighbor, family member or ambulance. You can rest easy knowing your loved one has 24-hour emergency response access.
