Lifeline Emergency Response Button

If you are worried about a family member, loved one or neighbor living alone, Lifeline offers the security of knowing help is immediately available. The Lifeline system helps people remain independent in their own homes for longer.

If you live alone, have a chronic health problem or a physical disability, the Community Lifeline may be the reassurance you need.

Here’s how it works

Your personal help button is on a pendant worn around your neck or wrist. Whenever you need help, you touch the button.

When activated, your pendant transmitter emits a signal to your home unit, which in turn, automatically dials the Lifeline National Emergency Response Centre.

When your help signal is received, trained staff will immediately answer your call your using a speaker phone to see if you need assistance.

If you request or if staff are unable to reach they will contact a friend, relative, or a neighbor who lives nearby who you have chosen to be called in case of this emergency. He or she will then come to your home to check on you. These units are easy to use and are available for a monthly rental cost.

If you or someone you care about could benefit from being part of our Community Lifeline, please contact Kaslo Community Service Society at 250-353-7691. The Lifeline Coordinator will be happy to visit you in your home to demonstrate the Lifeline System. Information is also available on Lifeline Canada’s web site.
