Canada’s # 1 Medical Alert Service1

Philips Lifeline is the first, largest, and industry leader medical alert service provider in North America with over 40 years of experience.

How does the Philips Lifeline medical alert service work?

  1. Summon Help – You’re always connected to Philips Lifeline’s 24/7 Response Centre with a simple push of your personal help button. In the event you cannot push your button or you are disoriented, our optional AutoAlert feature is designed to automatically call for help if it detects a fall.2
  2. Know help is on the way – If needed, Philips Lifeline Response Associate will contact a neighbour, a loved one, a caregiver or emergency services – based on your preference – and will follow up to make sure help has arrived.
  3. Hear a reassuring voice – A caring Philips Lifeline Response Associate will quickly access your personal profile and evaluate your situation.
