AlertLine Personal Response Program
AlertLine: Live at home independently knowing that help is on the way.
The AlertLine Program (previously known as Lifeline) is a community based 24-hour response system that allows people to live independently in their own homes receiving emergency assistance from the Beloit Health System staff when required.
A communicator unit hooks up to your telephone much like an answering machine. The subscribers wear a lightweight waterproof button on a necklace or wristband. When the button is pressed a signal comes to the Hospital Staff Monitoring Center and help is immediately on its way. Depending on the emergency, either a responder (your chosen contact person) or an emergency service is called.
Judy Simonds (left), AlertLine Coordinator and Sue Beeman (right) Assistant, work with volunteer installers like Lucille Braden (center) to place units in subscriber homes. Beloit Health System AlertLine service area covers most of the Stateline, including Beloit, Janesville, Clinton, Darien, Orfordville, Brodhead, and Illinois communities of South Beloit, Roscoe, Rockton, Machesney Park, Loves Park and NE Rockford.
There is a monthly fee of $25 to be a AlertLine subscriber, plus a one time installation fee of $20 in the immediate Stateline area. You or your loved one can life confidently and independently in your home with this emergency medical home response unit. When seconds count, Alertline can make the difference. Help at the touch of a button 24/7 for seniors, those needing special assistance or people living alone.
