Medical Alert Service Customer Stories and Testimonials

Over 7 million people have counted on Philips Lifeline to feel safe at home. In fact, more people choose Philips Lifeline than any other Medical Alert Service provider in Canada. Here are some of their stories.

“A few years ago after my grandmother had fallen several times and was still living on her own we invested in Lifeline to ease our minds and hers. Since that time, she has moved to a more accessible home and was living with my uncle, her son. Recently, my uncle has had numerous health issues. One day he collapsed while home alone. Philips Lifeline informed my mother that someone had fallen in the house. Luckily, my uncle was able to gain consciousness on his own by the time my mother tried to contact him. Lifeline not only informed us that a fall had taken place but allowed us to get a better timeline of events to report to the doctors when he was brought to the emergency room. Lifeline makes us, as a family, feel safe and confident that our loved ones are always looked out for.””

“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.”

Thelma, Subscriber

“To the amazing Lifeline team, Thank you so very much for your kind attention to my dad, Jean Paul Hebert. I am more than satisfied for your great devotion. He is fairly content in the retirement home but it will never be quite like his home. We have had your service for many years now, since mom became ill. We thank you most sincerely.”

Janice H., Caregiver

“My parents had just left after an afternoon visit and I was walking down the hall towards the living room. My husband and son weren’t home yet. As I was walking, I started to lose balance and fell to the floor. My GoSafe button detected the fall and, before I knew it, I could hear the Philips Lifeline operator speaking through the button I wear. It was such a relief to hear his voice coming from around my neck. I asked that he call my Sister in Law who lives close by. She was by my side in no time and was able to get a neighbour to come and help me to the couch.

This is the second time I’ve used my Philips Lifeline to get help. I’ve been a subscriber for a couple of years and it blows me away when people say they don’t need this service. Take it from me, you never know when you’ll need help. If and when you do need it, it’s great to have Philips Lifeline.”

Lucy D., Subscriber

“I had heard about Lifeline through advertisements in the media and felt my parents would be candidates for the service. As it turned, out we couldn’t have been more correct.

Since we signed up for Lifeline, the system has been used many times. What our family has been very thankful for is the quick and efficient response we have received both from Lifeline and the ambulance service. The response time for an ambulance to arrive is a direct reflection of a call being place quickly for help. Let me say every call received from Lifeline has been in a very timely fashion. Moments after an incident occurs, I receive a call informing me a fall has happened and communication has been made with my parents and, if needed, an ambulance has been dispatched. This is 24 hour a day peace of mind for all family members concerned.

We have probably used Lifeline over the past year countless times and I have to say without fail Lifeline has been there for us in a very professional manner thus given me and my parents the confidence to go about our daily routines with without worry.”

Rod Murphy, Caregiver
