Lifeline Access for individuals with limited mobility or physical challengesThese devices are offered as an alternative to the Personal Help Button. They can be used to answer incoming calls when you activate Lifeline’s remote answering feature and speakerphone. Lifeline offers the added protection of a smoke detector that automatically sends an emergency signal to the Lifeline Response Centre so that the Fire Department can be dispatched quickly. Lifeline develops other special assistive devices that give people with neuromuscular disabilities and disorders (like paralysis, Parkinson’s, MS Cerebral Palsy, and ALS) the ability to call Lifeline for help.
