Making wishes come true with Wish of a Lifetime Canada - Philips Lifeline

Let’s make special connections happen

In partnership with

At Philips Lifeline, helping seniors to get assistance after a fall or medical emergency is at the heart of what we do.  It’s about connecting them to a neighbour, loved one, or EMS when they need it most.  But the Lifeline service is also about making every day connections… Sometimes our subscribers push their button to say hello or to tell us about their day.  We understand the value of maintaining social connections, especially as we age, and we know that friendly conversations and caring connections can go a long way to making someone’s day and helping them to feel supported.

That’s why we are so proud to now be working with Wish of a Lifetime Canada (WOLC).  In 2017 Philips Lifeline Canada is partnering with Wish of a Lifetime Canada to grant three (3) wishes to seniors across Canada.  The theme for these three wishes is “reconnecting”.  Together with WOLC, we will reunite three lucky seniors with a loved one or a friend they haven’t seen in years.  We love the idea of reconnecting seniors with family, loved ones, or someone special from their past live as it aligns with our service commitment to keeping seniors connected.

Is there a special senior in your life who has a friend or family member you’d like them to reconnect with? If yes, we invite you to apply to have your wish granted. It’s easy:
