Banner Lifeline provides immediate assistance in an emergency by connecting you to an on-call Response Team member. This service uses an existing phone line (land line only) and a personal activator.
How does the Personal Emergency Response System work?
- When you need assistance, push the personal activator worn around your neck or wrist.
- The two-way voice console unit, plugged into your existing phone line, dials the 24-hour response center.
- A response-trained operator will speak with you to identify the assistance you need. Even if you can't speak or be heard, help will be sent immediately.
- Lifeline's new feature, AutoAlert, makes sure you get help when you fall even if you are disoriented, unconscious, immobilized or otherwise unable to push your Personal Help button. Lifeline with AutoAlert can automatically place a call for help if it detects a fall and you can't push the button yourself.
When you enroll with Banner Lifeline, a personalized file is created in the computerized On-Call Center.
When your signal is received, your personal and medical information, list of responders (family, friends, emergency personnel) and the response directive you want followed, are displayed on the terminal.
