24-hour emergency response system LIFELINE

Lifeline, a 24-hour emergency response system, helps individuals live independently by providing emergency help at the touch of a button. Lifeline subscribers have a base unit installed in their home and can access help by pushing a button that is worn on the wrist. When subscribers press their Lifeline button, the Lifeline unit automatically dials into the Response Center monitored by Decatur Morgan Hospital operators. Lifeline calls are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Subscribers to Lifeline pay an initial set-up fee of $40 ($20 for LifeStyle members) and a $30 monthly monitoring fee.

Lifeline has been offered to the community since 1984 and currently provides support to more than 330 subscribers in Decatur and surrounding areas.
