RNVA Today: The perfect gift

What do you give the person who has everything and lives alone? Consider the gift of a Lifeline medical alert device. RVNA provides several different types of this innovative medical alert service which provides quick access to help 24 hours a day in the event of an emergency.

For those living independently, Lifeline provides a vital safety net. Research shows there is a small window of opportunity in which medical assistance can make a difference for those who have just suffered a heart attack or stroke. Lifeline’s “Auto Alert” personal response pendant detects a fall at home with 95% accuracy and signals for help when your loved one cannot. If a person doesn’t respond within 30 seconds, emergency personnel are notified. The new Lifeline “Go Safe” medical alert system with GPS technology is appropriate for more active and mobile individuals.

With any Lifeline system, RVNA is contacted if a hospitalization occurs and our staff will visit your loved one to plan a smooth transition back home. With Lifeline, you have peace of mind knowing a person is safe and secure thanks to the most advanced personal monitoring technology available.

RVNA’s highly trained personnel install and provide education on the use of the Lifeline device. Monthly fees are affordable, and service calls and battery replacement are free.  For more information visit our website: www.ridgefieldvna.org or contact us at 203-438-5555.
