Lifeline

 

Baptist Health Lexington Lifeline provides a way for people living or staying alone to summon help quickly without having to get to the phone. Subscribers wear a lightweight, waterproof button on a necklace or wristband that can be pressed when help is needed. Monitors from a 24-hour center send help (family, neighbor with key or paramedics) and monitor the subscriber until help arrives.

This service can be adapted to assist anyone with any medical situation, including people who are deaf or hard of hearing, cannot speak, are visually impaired or lack the muscular strength needed to push the help button. Monitoring staff is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are highly trained to meet any need or situation.

Service Area

Baptist Health Lexington Lifeline is available to anyone in Fayette, Bourbon, Jessamine, Madison, Nicholas, Scott or Woodford counties.

Cost

The program is provided as a community service of Baptist Health Lexington and the Baptist Health Lexington Auxiliary. Monthly cost for monitoring is $34, and no other fees are charged for equipment or installation (which is performed by auxiliary volunteers). The service may be stopped at any time. Medicare and Medicaid do not reimburse for this service. To set up the equipment, you must have a modular phone jack (which most people already have).
