For Ruth and her son, Philips Lifeline delivers peace of mind.

Ruth was referred to Philips Lifeline 14 years ago after a devastating fall which left her hospitalized. Her Lifeline allowed her to return home after her surgery knowing she could get help 24/7 at the push of a button. Recently, Ruth upgraded to GoSafe, Philips Lifeline’s latest innovation which is designed for use at home and on the go. With six locating technologies and AutoAlert, Philips Lifeline’s advanced fall detection techonology, Ruth can continue to enjoy and benefit from her active lifestyle without worry. Now that’s true independence.

Ruth experienced a devastating fall a number of years ago.  Since then, she has made a full recovery but enjoys the security she feels wearing her Lifeline button. Ruth jumped at the chance to upgrade to GoSafe since she is always out and about volunteering, running errands, attending book club, or walking her dog.

Philips Lifeline has allowed Ruth to overcome the fear of being perceived as someone ‘in-need’—a common stigma for the aging population. GoSafe gives Ruth a feeling of empowerment and security when she is out and about or in the comfort of her own home. It also provides peace of mind for her son who can’t be with her at all times.

Think technology has to be complicated?  Not when it comes to protecting active seniors who want to age in place.  Learn how Philips Lifeline subscriber Ruth uses GoSafe to feel more connected and secure while she is out and about and living life to the fullest.

“GoSafe has made all the difference in the world. To know that help is just a press button away allows me the freedom to maintain my active lifestyle outside the home without making compromises fuelled by fear.”

— Ruth Joyce, Scarborough, ON

At-home senior care is evolving. With GoSafe from Philips Lifeline, Ruth hasn’t skipped a beat. She has the freedom to live here life, and her son has the peace of mind knowing help is always there if she needs it.
