Our mission is to save lives and help seniors maintain their independence by offering the best technology and most comprehensive monitoring services.
Immediate emergency care saves lives. In the event of a heart attack, America’s number one killer, about 50% of deaths occur within one hour of the attack — while the victim is outside the hospital.
Urgent medical attention also ensures independent living. The Center of Disease Control (CDC) reports that about one in three Americans over 65 will fall in a given year — it’s the leading cause of accidental death among senior citizens. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, 90% of the elderly people who get help within one hour of a fall or other injury continue to live independent lives. If seniors don’t get help for 12 hours, however, there’s only a 10% chance that they’ll be able to live on their own without assistance.
Despite these facts, companies continue to sell unsafe, impractical, unreliable, and overpriced emergency response devices on TV and online. These products promise to help senior citizens, people with mobility challenges, and individuals with chronic health problems call for help when they need urgent medical care. But when it comes to some of the most common accidents in the home — a slip in the shower, for example, or a stumble in the driveway — these products just don’t work. We found a better solution.
After years of testing and development, we found the answer: LifeControl Emergency Response System. Unlike all other products on the market, LifeControl pairs powerful yet easy-to-use communications technology with 24-hour monitoring services certified by the American Emergency Monitoring Association. This ensures that people can get the help they need, fast, from anywhere in the home — even if they’re out working in the garden. And our certified local support staff is on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to make sure you get the help you or your loved one needs without delay.
Even better, because it’s important to us that all people have access to technology that’s proven to save lives, we strive to keep our prices within everyone’s budget. This includes the millions of Americans who suffer from today’s tough economy, are buried in medical bills, or are living on a fixed income.
