Life Line a wonderful service

Posted: Friday, June 11, 2010

As a senior, almost octogenarian, I still live happily independent and care for all my needs. However, the one service I cannot do without is Life Line.

I live alone and Life Line provides me with a secure back-up; waking up from a seizure, I can push the button on my watch then hearing the voice of the contact person over the Life Line phone is great. When we have a power outage it is so helpful that I can call the coordinator who can reset the answer machine and check out the electronic gadgets. Friends who live on their own in the woods can be sure there is a person who comes to their help and people who have developmental disabilities can use a button but some cannot use a telephone and dial a number. It gives me peace of mind that when I feel a seizure come up I can push the button, in case I don't wake up I know I will not be laying there till some friends walk in and find me gone. I'm so happy the hospital is a not-for-profit hospital this is one of the great services provided to the community.

Independence is precious! Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes are good, but much more expensive.
