Philips Lifeline and Medication Management Services
Every day, your VNA assists a wide range of people in maintaining their independence and quality of life. Through a partnership with Philips Lifeline, your VNA now stays connected to our clients even when we are not actively caring for them in their home.
The VNA Lifeline program works closely with Philips trained and experienced customer service representatives who are available 24 hours a day to respond to your health emergencies.
If you or someone you know:
- Lives alone,
- Has limited mobility,
- Is at risk of falling,
- Has a complicated medication regimen,
.... VNA can help.
A lightweight, waterproof button, worn as a pendant or on your wrist, can immediately put you in voice contact with a professionally-trained person who will call one of your designated nearby friends, relatives or neighbors who will come to your assistance to check on you. If you need emergency professional help, it will be called for immediately.
The AutoAlert Pendant can detect a fall and automatically call for help even if you are disoriented, immobilized, or unconscious. The waterproof design is safe to wear in the shower.
Philips Medication Dispenser
Taking your medications exactly as your doctor prescribed is an important part of staying healthy. Taking the wrong medication, an incorrect dose, or missing a dose can put your health at serious risk.
The Medication Dispensing Service from Philips provides an easy-to-use solution that helps you take the right medications at the right time. Hear a simple audio reminder and at the push of a button, get your medications at the pre-programmed times.
This technology also:
- Provides for loading and programming of medication doses in advance,
- Automatically announces and dispenses up to six doses per day with multiple reminders,
- Delivers health-related reminder messages,
- Gives a warning light and sound alert prior to calling for caregiver support,
- Alerts caregivers if doses are not taken.
