Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert with Fall Detection is a sleek wearable that uses three different technologies to more accurately detect falls, avoid false alarms (a leading reason people don’t like wearing alert devices), and call for help whether your parent presses the button or not. Learn more about why Lifeline’s AutoAlert fall detection is right for your loved one.

When Seniors Have a Medical Emergency

You’re right to worry about unforeseen medical emergencies, like heart attacks, dizziness or disorientation. Philips GoSafe 2 is perfect for active seniors who spend a lot of time outside the home, enabling them to request assistance from any location at any time. Philips HomeSafe with AutoAlert is designed for homebound seniors, providing a 24/7/365 virtual companion that’s just a button-press away.

For Seniors with Chronic Conditions

These adults are more likely to fall, and they require emergency transport 54 percent more often than their healthier peers.[1] Our CareSage solution uses a predictive analytics engine to help your parent’s care team determine when s/he may be at more of a risk for a health episode or fall so you can take preventive action. Philips GoSafe 2 and HomeSafe with AutoAlert give your chronically ill parent access to assistance whenever s/he needs it.

For Active Seniors

Whether they’re at home or on the go, Philips GoSafe 2 gives your active parent the freedom to pursue their interests and activities with the confidence and security of knowing help is available at the press of a button. This wearable is waterproof, so it can be worn even in the bath or shower, where almost 36 percent of home-based fall injuries occur.[2]

When Seniors Have a Non-Medical Emergency

Our Trained Care Specialists, accessed through a Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert device, are ready to assist even when your parent has a non-medical need, such as when s/he is locked out, requires roadside assistance, or needs to report a burglary or fire. 

How can falls be predicted, identified, and reported?

Our CareSage solution uses data from your parent’s medical records, plus Lifeline enrollment and medical alert service activity, to predict if your parent is likely to need assistance, or is at risk for emergency transport in the next 30 days. That empowers the care team to prepare accordingly. If a fall does occur, quick response is vital: 60 percent of seniors who don’t request help for an hour or more are unable to return to independent living.[3] Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert with Fall Detection uses three different technologies to more accurately identify and report falls. The AutoAlert Help Button detects more than 95 percent of many types of falls*, and can automatically call for help with or without the press of a button,** so help is on the way much faster than if your parent called 9-1-1 on their own. Learn more about what happens when seniors fall.

*Based on the number of undetected falls that have been reported to Philips Lifeline by U.S. AutoAlert subscribers for the period from January 2012 through July 2012. Undetectable falls can include a gradual slide from a seated position – such as from a wheelchair, which may not register as a fall.

**AutoAlert does not detect 100 percent of falls. If able, the user should always press their button when they need help.

How do we access 24/7/365 support?

Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert with Fall Detection give your parent access to support 24/7/365, whether they’re having a medical emergency, need help after a fall, or are feeling lonely or disoriented. This “virtual companion” gives you and your parent the confidence to continue living how and where s/he wants to. Learn more about aging at home.

Hear it from Life Link Customers

It really makes a difference in my life. Two years ago, I fell outside on a cold and snowy day in February and fractured my left hip. The fall detection unit immediately activated and EMS came to the rescue. I would have froze to death without Life Link."

"David, a young man being raised by his grandmother was not wanting to go to school. He was worried about his grandmother falling while he was away. Since working with Life Link, he's no longer anxious about leaving during the day, and he's a different little boy."

Is it time for medical alert services?

Eight important questions to help determine when a medical alert system may be right for you, or an aging parent.

Prepare for the talk

As your parents age, you might feel a bit of a role reversal. Just as your safety was their first priority when you were learning to ride a bike, or first got your driver's license; you might be worried about their safety now.

You can't always be there to help them, and you know that a medical alert device could help. But you also know your parents might need some convincing.
