With AutoAlert, if a fall is detected, subscribers still have the opportunity to receive quick access to assistance even in situations where they can't push their button, for example, if they lose consciousness, become immobilized, forget to push their button or won't push their button because they feel they can manage the situation independently. Just as important, the service can provide added confidence and peace of mind to the 22 million seniors who fear falling.(5)

"Falls and associated injuries are a significant threat to the health of senior citizens," said Timothy Archuleta, health and safety officer, American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles. "For the cost of a cup of coffee a day, seniors in our community can receive a meaningful and needed service, allowing them to have the confidence to continue to live in the homes they love, knowing that they can get help when they need it."

For more information about Lifeline with AutoAlert, please call 1-800-959-6989. The Red Cross is compensated for its marketing activity associated with the Philips Lifeline program for seniors. This compensation helps Red Cross chapters provide disaster and other services to the community.
