Emergency Response Devices

Lifeline

These devices are attached to a telephone and have the capability of bringing emergency help to people living at home alone.  By pressing a button worn around the neck or wrist, the emergency response unit will automatically call a central answering station that is staffed 7 days a week, 24 hours per day.  A trained operator will attempt to contact the client through a speaker in the unit and will summon the appropriate help.

For more information, contact Megan Melise, Lifeline Program Coordinator, at 401-751-3152 ext. 110.

Electronic Medication Dispenser

This appliance assists older people who have difficulty managing their medications.  Medications are pre-poured into cups that are dispensed automatically based upon a pre-programmed schedule.  If the cup is not taken from the device, an automatic alert is sent to a designated person.
