Lifeline is a personal response service that gives seniors immediate access to help whenever they need it. By simply pressing the Personal Help Button worn around the neck or wrist, a Lifeline subscriber is instantly connected to a professional monitor who will assess the caller's need and respond appropriately, whether it's calling a loved one, neighbor or emergency services.
The Village of Niles is offering Lifeline to individuals age 80 and over who live alone for $10 a month, $25 for those who are younger or living with someone, and $30 per month for couples. A one-time installation fee of $22.50 is charged to everyone. For more information, or to register for the program, please contact the Senior Center at 847-588-8420.
