There are so many medical alert options on the market right now that it can be hard to keep them all straight. And that makes it almost impossible to make an informed decision without hours and hours of research.
We’ve done all the research and combed through all of the options. When it came time to make a choice about which one we wanted to offer to our clients and their family, there was no hesitation. We chose Philip’s Lifeline.
The Midnight Sun Home Care Mission:
We will ensure the quality of life for our clients and provide peace of mind for their loved ones.
The Philip’s Lifeline Mission:
Our mission is to transform the aging experience, making it better for older adults, caregivers and clinicians around the world.
As you can see, our mission statements are very closely aligned. This was just one of the factors that made us decide to offer Lifeline as a part of our care plans. But it goes even further than that. Lifeline is committed to offering innovative, quality to care to everyone so that they can improve the quality of life for individuals and families everywhere. We share a belief that the best option for aging is to support independence for as long as possible and to stay in a comfortable setting.
Lifeline offers quick, personalized support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is one of the most important things for us as well.
“Life is 24 hours a day, and our clients may need help 24 hours a day. They call us—even at 3 a.m.—and we answer the phone.”
— Kevin Turkington, MSHC Founder and President
Continual innovation was another factor in our decision. We always want our clients to have the best products available because we know that every second counts. Lifeline personal response associates answer calls within an average of 22 seconds! With the most recent advances in Lifeline’s technology there’s virtually no place that their call center can’t reach. Combined with CareSage, the Phillips lifeline offers our caregivers insights and knowledge to prevent problems before they occur.
A few of the other factors that we considered were –
Minimum Obligation / Cancellation Fees
Automatic Fall Detection
Lifeline had the least amount of fees, was easier to set-up or stop, has the longest range, the most diverse location technology, and keeps its users the safest. Consumer Reports has a wonderful comparison write-up if you’re interested in doing your own comparison.
