Owensboro Health Foundation Funds $9,000 For Lifeline Monitoring

Owensboro Health Foundation has funded $9,000 to Owensboro Health’s Home Care department to underwrite Lifeline monitoring services for elderly individuals in need.

Pat Serey,
Executive Director

Lifeline is the original personal emergency response system that offers AutoAlert fall-detection technology. AutoAlert pendants contain unique sensors programmed to measure changes in a person’s height and orientation to a horizontal position and the velocity of those changes. If a person falls and doesn’t get up on their own after 30 seconds, AutoAlert automatically places a call to the Owensboro Health Lifeline 24/7 Response Center.

“With help from the Foundation, the Lifeline program can reach many more people to keep them safe in their homes,” said Pat Serey, executive director, Owensboro Health Foundation. “We are pleased to fund these important monitoring services to assist patients who are unable to afford Lifeline on their own.”

Owensboro Health has supported Lifeline since 1990. Over the years this service has helped countless individuals whom have fallen and needed assistance getting back up. Owensboro Health’s Lifeline program helps over 240 individuals currently, with the potential to help countless others.
