Below is a list of the Lifeline products and services currently available through Home Instead Senior Care.​ ​​


 ​Home Instead Senior Care Lifeline Solutions

Step 1: Choose a Communicator; HomeSafe-Landline; HomeSafe-Wireless; or the new GoSafe Mobile Wireless

The HomeSafe-Landline communicator is Philips Lifeline's signature system. Available with a standard Personal Help Button; worn around the neck or wrist, OR a AutoAlert pendant designed to detect most falls and call for help if you are unable to push your button.  ​ 
Being able to be heard during a Help Call is a common concern addressed by the Voice Extension used in conjunction with the HomeSafe-Landline communicator. Designed for those who live in larger or multi-story homes, this accessory enables a second two-way speakerphone in the home to better enable voice communication in remote areas during a Help Call.

​Step 2: Choose a Pendant

Feeling safe shouldn’t be constrained to your home environment. Ideally, you’d like to feel safe and secure wherever you might be! Whether that’s walking to your mailbox or going on vacation, feel confident with 24/7 access to help at home and outside on the go with our GoSafe line of medical alert systems. GoSafe is the new mobile personal emergency response system from Philips Lifeline.
Designed for those that are looking for an easy-to-use system that can help provide them with a sense of confidence to continue to get out and live life to the fullest. 
​​
Every year, more than 13 million people age 65 and older suffer from falling accidents. You can become disoriented, or become immobilized or knocked unconscious, and unable to call for help. We responded to this need with the new Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert option. Just like with our Standard Lifeline Medical Alert Service, you can push the pendant-style button for help at any time. For an added layer of protection, the Lifeline with AutoAlert is the only pendant-style help button that can automatically place a call for help if it detects a fall and you're unable to push the button yourself. ​ 

The Slimline Personal Help Button is small, lightweight, and completely waterproof to provide maximum comfort and flexibility. Slimline's attractive design reduces the stigma associated with wearing a Personal Help Button. Slimline can be worn as a pendant with an adjustable neck cord or easily converted to a wrist strap with a soft, adjustable elastic strap.
 


 ​Why Betty White Wears Philips Lifeline​

When you get older, in the back of your mind, there is always a bit of worry. A little, "Oh, I've got to keep my balance. Oh, I don't want to trip over something and I really don't want to fall down." I'm not talking negatively, but it's in your mind, and you can't help it.​

"I'm not sure why someone would want to live without Philips Lifeline. It's not about being old, it's about being safe... and smart."
