    Well almost anybody but usually it is used by those who live alone and have a long term medical condition that may leave them largely incapacitated without much warning. Diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. The system can have somebody whether a friend, relative, or even the ambulance, if necessary, respond in time of need. This may occur if a person has simply slipped and needs help up or any other of many possibilities. It is an assurance to the user of never really being alone.
  • How does it work?

This will alert the lifeline dispatcher at the Weyburn General Hospital or St. Josephs’ Hospital, who will then try to speak to the client thru the machine installed into the phone line at the clients’ house. Failing a response the dispatcher will call one of the clients’ responders and ask them to go over and check on the client.
  • What is the cost for this service?
    Currently the charge is $30/month and $25 installation fee.
    Lifeline has been providing assurance to people for 17 years.
