Description of Services
When an individual experiences a fall, a medical crisis, or other emergency, every second counts. If they are alone, delayed medical care or assistance can jeopardize recovery or independence. With a simple push of a button, our trained Response Associates provide fast and caring assistance, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Why Choose Companion For Life Instead of Another Product?
Companion For Life Provides the following features that no one else can match:
- Hands-on in-home installation courtesy of our friendly & expert home installers
- State of the Art equipment manufactured by Medical Guardian
- A sliding scale for low-income individuals; your fees go to a local non-profit organization, and help us provide discounted equipment to those who can’t afford to pay the full cost
- Our trained staff are available for service calls as long as you’re a subscriber, unlike mail order or off-the-shelf products
Mission & History
Originating as a pilot program of the Seniors Council in 1989, the Companion For Life Project rejoined the Seniors Council in 2015 after 25 years of independent operation to insure the best possible delivery of services to our local elders. The goal of the Companion for Life Program is to provide a locally based medical alert service at the lowest feasible cost to all individuals who desire continued independence at home due to failing health or other factors.
