Because life is unpredictable, help should be available at all times.
The Lifeline Personal Emergency Response Service, at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, provides quick assistance whenever needed – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. People who care will always be in close touch, no matter what your health concerns or special needs. This service uses an existing phone line (land line only) and a personal activator.
There are several reasons why people use Lifeline, from general concerns about falling to medical conditions that can affect a person's ability to be alone.
Lifeline allows people to go about daily activities with more confidence and less worry. Subscribers often become increasingly mobile and active because they don't worry as much about falling or accidents.
Lifeline is operated by our Volunteer Services. Some financial assistance is available for low-income clients. Screening can be done by calling Volunteer Services at (907) 458-5597.
