Oswego Hospital’s Lifeline service allows many of Oswego County’s senior citizens and others to remain living in their own homes.
Knowing that help is just a button push away, Philips Lifeline has enabled millions of people to live with greater independence and peace of mind. Lifeline also offers assurance to family caregivers that often have to balance the needs of their loved ones with the demands of their own busy lives.
Lifeline’s personal emergency response system is easy to use. When help is needed, the subscriber simply pushes the waterproof personal help button that’s worn as a wristband or pendant. Within seconds a Lifeline representative is able to respond with the appropriate help. This might be a neighbor, family member, police/fire dept. or an ambulance depending on the help that is needed.
Oswego Hospital’s Lifeline service also offers Auto Alert, which can detect whether an individual has fallen and is unable to get up. Through this device, help can be summoned within 30 seconds if an individual has fallen, or has become disoriented or immobile.
To find out how this new technology works, take a look at this short informational video.
Call today to determine whether payments from third party payers are possible, including Oswego County’s Office Of the Aging or Department of Social Services; Personal Care Aide Program and The Long Term Care Program. Self Pay subscribers may also qualify for reduced fees based upon their income.

Our new lifeline with AutoAlert specialized fall detection capabilities. If you fall and are unable to push the button on your pendant because you are disoriented, immobilized, or unconscious, help will be automatically summoned. The new AutoAlert adds a another layer of protection. This enhanced service option can provide even greater peace of mind and confidence. Lifeline is the ONLY medical alert service provider that integrates this capability into a pendant-style Help Button.
