Hudson Hospital Foundation offers Life Assist home monitoring to seniors living alone
Hudson Hospital & Clinic offers Life Assist USA to support the safety, security and independent living of seniors in the community. Life Assist is an electronic home monitoring system that works in conjunction with the user’s telephone service. If the user needs help, he or she would simply push a button – worn on a wristband or necklace – to contact the monitoring center for assistance, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The Life Assist service is available for a nominal monthly fee. This valuable program is sponsored by Hudson Hospital Foundation – and provides family members with peace of mind.
Approximately 110 community members are currently part of the Life Assist home monitoring program, allowing them to live independently. This program, previously called Lifeline, has been funded and subsidized by the Foundation since 1984. In 2011, the Life Assist program assisted about 40 community members.
