|Home health gives elders confidence to live independently in their own homes|
Hi Line Home Health provides Lifeline personal response services 24-hours a day, 365-days-a-year to seniors in the surrounding communities.
The service provides quick assistance whenever personal support is needed especially in a medical emergency.
Shaun Meyer RN says, “Helping seniors live with confidence is a mission we hold close to our hearts and one that all of us take seriously. We are proud to be a part of an organization that helps support the active and independent lifestyle of elders in our community. Lifeline is there when loved ones or caregivers can’t be. It allows everyone to go about the day to day with peace of mind.”
Currently, Hi Line Home Health serves 68 elders in Perkins, Keith, Arthur, Deuel, and Lincoln counties. The program was started in 2004.
By simply pushing a lightweight, waterproof button that can be either worn around the neck or wrist, a subscriber is immediately connected to a highly trained monitor who has instant access to the caller’s complete health history and will quickly link each subscriber to the care they need.
Lifeline monitors must undergo intensive training in gerontology, stress management and related topics on aging before they are certified to answer subscriber calls.
Lifeline Systems was founded in 1974 by a husband and wife team of gerontologists–Drs. Andrew and Susan Dibner.
Today, including Hi Line Home Health clients, the company supports over 2500 community partners and more than 350,000 elders from its Massachusetts operations. Over 20,000 calls per day are handled from elders in under 20 seconds each.
