Mount Auburn Hospital LifeLine Program

In a fall or emergency every second counts.  Delayed medical attention can jeopardize recovery.  Lifeline is an easy-to-use personal response service that ensures older adults living at home receive rapid assistance whenever it is needed, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Simply press the waterproof Personal Help Button that is worn as a pendant or wristband.  Within seconds, a Certified Lifeline Monitor responds, assesses the situation and, if necessary, summons the appropriate predetermined responders, whether it be a neighbor, relative or ambulance.  In the event the Lifeline monitor cannot hear you, a responder will be sent.

Lifeline is like insurance.  Even if you have the support of family and friends, Lifeline is available to you between their visits and calls.  If you fall or become ill Lifeline is there for you, offering peace of mind to both you and your loved ones.  Enjoy a stronger sense of well-being.  Call Mount Auburn Hospital Lifeline to learn more about how Lifeline service can benefit you and your loved ones.  617-499-5525.

Service Options

Standard Lifeline Service includes a communicator and waterproof personal help button, wearable on the wrist or as a pendant.


Lifeline with AutoAlert Service* includes the pendant style AutoAlert personal help button with advanced fall-detection technology and a compatible communicator.  In addition to your pushing the button for help at any time, the AutoAlert personal help button automatically places a call for help if a fall is detected and you cannot push your button.  AutoAlert can provide even greater peace of mind and confidence.

*AutoAlert option does not detect 100% of falls.  If able, you should always press your button when you need help.
