“Words can barely express how much peace of mind this service has brought to me and my family since getting it. It has allowed me to live alone, in my own home, ever since my husband’s death years ago. A wonderful service.”
“To the amazing Lifeline team, Thank you so very much for your kind attention to my dad, Jean Paul Hebert. We have had your service for many years now, since mom became ill. We thank you most sincerely.”
“The wireless service is perfect for someone like me who has a chronic illness. It lets me stay independent safely and it’s so wonderful not to have to worry about how I would get help if I have another unnoticed seizure.”
The Most Trusted Medical Alert Service in Canada
Over 7 million* people have counted on Lifeline to feel safe at home
Lifeline is an easy-to-use personal response service that lets you summon help any time of the day or night – even if you can’t speak. All you have to do is press your Help Button, worn on a wristband or pendant, and a trained Personal Response Associate will ensure you get help fast. That’s why Lifeline provides the #1 Medical Alert Service to offer you something else: peace of mind.
Dependability is key to peace of mind. That’s why doctors, hospitals, and professional caregivers trust our Medical Alert Service.
Only Lifeline offers Fall Detection – the most widely adopted fall detection in North America.
For an added layer of protection, Fall Detection lets us know if you need help – even if you can’t. Its superior technology is designed to automatically detect most falls1 – and achieve a low rate of false alarms – by distinguishing between actual falls and everyday activities like sitting, standing and reclining.
Over 30% of the time seniors experiencing a fall can’t or don’t push their button potentially due to unconsciousness or confusion.
Lifeline with Fall Detection has automatically detected over 200,000 falls that services requiring a button to be pushed might’ve missed.
At the heart of all of our services is a discrete call button, worn as a necklace or bracelet. It connects you or loved one to help in a case of a fall or an emergency 24/7. Our emergency button is paired with an in-home Communicator which acts as a speaker phone for two-way voice communication with our Response Centre. All calls go directly to the Lifeline-owned Response Centre in Canada. You can always be sure that your call will be answered by highly trained and caring Response Associates who will access your profile, contact the people you’ve identified, and request the help you want. Our Response Associates will even follow up to confirm that help has arrived.

Keeping seniors active with Lifeline’s mobile medical alert system
Ruth has been a Lifeline subscriber after she experienced a fall over 14 years ago. While Ruth has enjoyed the feeling of confidence and security her Lifeline button service provides, she always wanted to feel the same peace of mind when she left the house. As an active senior who volunteers at the local hospital, walks her dog, and runs her own errands, Ruth jumped at the chance to get our mobile medical alert service. Featuring location tracking technologies like GPS and fall detection, Lifeline’s mobile personal emergency response system gives seniors the assurance to get up and go while being protected by our 24/7, Canada-based response centre which protects more seniors than any other medical alert service.

As a Responder, you are a very important part of the Lifeline network. When the subscriber presses their Help Button to signal for help, our Response Centre will determine whether your assistance may be needed and call you with instructions on what we need you to do to help your loved one or friend.
Can I use the Help button outside?
This depends on the type of Lifeline service you have:
HomeSafe: Depending on the range of your Help Button, you may be able to access help in the garden or yard of your home. However, it’s important to understand your coverage area. Conducting a range test will help you to determine whether your HomeSafe button also works on your property/outside of your house. Watch our informational video on conducting a range test here: How to Conduct a Range Test
On the Go: Uses a third-party cellular provider and is designed for use anywhere across Canada. Provided your On the Go button has access to a third-party cellular network provider, you can access help 24/7 if you have a fall or need medical assistance
What does my monthly Lifeline invoice cover?
Your invoice outlines the monthly fee for your Lifeline which includes rental of the equipment, your 24/7 monitoring, and any applicable taxes.
How do I adjust the neck cord?
The neck cord can be shortened or lengthened using the following process:
To shorten: With a tab between your first finger and thumb of each hand, slide both tabs apart in line with your shoulders.
To lengthen: Pull one strand off the neck cord while sliding the tab to the back. Repeat on the other side.
I need to adjust the neck cord. Can I tie a knot in it?
No. You should never tie a knot in the neck cord as it could prevent the break-away feature from working properly and creates a risk of strangulation. The neck cord can be adjusted by pulling on the adjustment tabs located on each side of the neck cord.
