What is the difference between Fraser Health Lifeline and lower priced competitors?
There are two primary differences: Service delivery and product innovation.
When it comes to service delivery, you want a provider who is local and will be there from the initial call until you no longer need the service. With Fraser Health Lifeline, we have a local team who personally install and will also maintain the equipment the entire time you or your loved one is on the service.
Plus, with Fraser Health Lifeline there is no contract, no service fees, and no hidden fees. We also:
Because we are in partnership with Philips Lifeline, we offer the latest product innovations in the industry. Only AutoAlert detects greater than 95% of falls in case you are unable to push your help button. While active seniors choose GoSafe which is the only mobile help button with six locating technologies so you can access help on the go. You can have even greater confidence knowing that all of Lifeline’s help buttons are 100% waterproof so they can be worn in the bath and the shower – where most falls occur.
Plus, you can feel good knowing that all revenue from Fraser Health Lifeline is reinvested into healthcare programs and services benefiting our health region.
