With Lifeline from McLaren HomeCare, help is just the press of a button away.
McLaren HomeCare is pleased to provide members of Mid-Michigan's senior community with America's most trusted medical alert service. For more than 30 years, Lifeline has enabled millions of people to live with greater independence, peace of mind and dignity in the place they feel most comfortable-their own homes. Because the Lifeline service also helps family caregivers to balance the needs of their loved ones with the demands of their own busy lives, Lifeline is of immense benefit to them as well. If you have any questions, would like to talk about your particular needs, or are ready to begin service, we welcome your call at 1-866-674-9900 extension 4427.
In three easy steps, get the help you need
Simply push your Lifeline Personal Help Button. If you have our NEW Lifeline with AutoAlert*, you will get an added layer of protection as it will automatically place a call for help if it detects a fall and you are unable to push your button.
Hear a reassuring voice
No matter the time or day, a trained Lifeline Response Associate will answer your call, access your profile, and assess the situation.
After assessing the situation, our associate will contact a neighbor, family member, or emergency services based on your specific needs, and follow up to confirm help has arrived.
Getting the right help in a timely manner really can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Call us at 1-866-674-9900 ext. 4427 to discuss the options right for you.
Get help at the touch of a button
Philips Lifeline offers dependable, convenient, and purpose-built technology, assembled and tested by Lifeline right here in the United States.
What does that mean to you? Just like how in the event of an emergency, you can get help quickly, we're also available to monitor our equipment. It's self-checking and notifies the Response Center if it detects a power failure or low battery.
Enjoy Lifeline Medical Alert Service with your existing telephone
Combine the Philips Lifeline CarePartner Communicator with a Personal Help Button and your existing phone, then enjoy unparalleled peace of mind:
- Answer calls remotely by just pressing your Personal Help Button
- Get a monthly test call reminder.
- Hear conversations more easily with voice amplification on the speaker phone.
- Use with all personal help buttons, even our new AutoAlert.
- Trust the 15-hour battery back-up in the event of a power outage.
Caution: Choosing your help button
It is important that you and your caregiver choose the Personal Help Button most suitable for you. Please consider the following:
The Classic, Slimline and AutoAlert Pendants are worn around the neck; this helps make the button accessible by either of your hands.
Caution: The Pendant's neck cord is not designed to break away. Therefore, it can pose a choking risk, including the possibility of death and serious injuries. This may apply to wearers in wheelchairs, using walkers, using beds with guard rails, or otherwise protruding objects upon which the cord can become tangled. Wearers for whom this is a concern may wish to consider the Wrist Style method.
Range may vary due to construction of your home and distance from the Lifeline Telephone or Basic Unit.
Call 1-866-674-9900 ext. 4427 so we can help determine which Help Button style is most appropriate for you.
Choose the medical alert service preferred by millions of seniors
Numbers don't lie. Philips Lifeline is the leading provider of medical alert services, having served over 6 million subscribers during our three decades of experience. That experience has earned us the trust, respect, and recommendation of more than 65,000 healthcare providers - maybe even yours. What's at the root of that trust?
If you develop a plan to live at home, and put Philips Lifeline Medical Alert Service into that plan, you can have confidence that when you need help, we will connect you to our 24/7 Response Center and send help based on your specific needs whether it is emergency services, a neighbor, or a loved one. How can we be sure? That's how we staff our Response Center, with trained Personal Response Associates. Our Response Center is company-owned and supported with a back-up Call Center, so you can count on us to be there and get you help quickly. At home, our equipment is self-checking and notifies the response center if it detects a power failure or low battery. Why should you have to worry about that?
What's more, Lifeline is available in every community across the country.
For more than 35 years, we've focused on creating products to help seniors live independently at home, including the original medical alert service. Other devices may come around, like cell phones, but only a medical alert service is always accessible in an emergency - or able to immediately redial if your call doesn't connect on the first try.
We continue to develop new services, such as Lifeline with AutoAlert, the only pendant-style Help Button that automatically places a call if it detects a fall and you're unable to push your button.
Lifeline's engineering team also focuses on purpose-built products. While other medical alert services may attempt to incorporate less specific equipment, or equipment that's been designed for other purposes, Philips Lifeline designs every product, interface, and device to meet the needs of our customers and the reliable, high-quality response services we offer.
Pay for service on a monthly basis, just while you need it. We won't ask you to sign a long-term contract, confront hidden costs, or buy special equipment.
