• Test your Lifeline Help Button every month by pressing it and placing a check-in call to the Lifeline Response Center. See page 22 for instructions.

• Do not remove the label on the back of your Lifeline Help Button.

The label ensures that your Lifeline Help Button remains waterproof.

If the label is removed, peeling off, or damaged in any way, please contact Lifeline.

• Do not put your Lifeline Help Button through the clothes washer, dryer or dishwasher.

• Your Lifeline Help Button can only be serviced in the factory. There are no user-replaceable parts inside of it.

• Like all cordless phones, your Lifeline Cordless Phone requires AC power to operate. However, in the event of a power outage, your

Lifeline Cordless Phone will provide up to 1 hour of backup power for regular phone calls and 30 hours of backup power for Help Calls. Your

Lifeline Service will not work if there is a power outage of more than 30 hours.

• It is typically recommended that Lifeline subscribers also have a corded phone in their home, which can function throughout a power outage.

• The Lifeline Cordless Phone relies on electrical and telephone service that is wholly beyond the control of Lifeline. If your telephone service is out of order or disconnected, your equipment will not operate.

• If you have another phone in a different area of your home and it is left off-hook, your Lifeline Cordless Phone will not be able to place a Help

Call. To make sure that your Lifeline Cordless Phone can place a Help

Call when needed, plug the other phone(s) into the phone accessory jack on the back of your Lifeline Cordless Phone’s base. If you need assistance, please call Lifeline.


Responders and People to Notify

As a Lifeline subscriber, you should identify one or more people who will agree to respond in the event of an incident. These are called

Responders . Typically, Responders are family members, friends or neighbors who are nearby and can come to assist you.

Often, there are other people who are not available to assist you but who would like to know that you needed assistance. These could be family members in another area or healthcare professionals who are involved in your care. These people are referred to as People to Notify .

Choosing a Responder

It is best to choose a Responder who:

• Has a key to your home or knows where one is located

(perhaps in a key lockbox).

• Could come to help you at different times of the day or night.

• Lives or works within 10 minutes of where you live.

• Is physically capable of assisting you if you need help.

Information Lifeline Needs About Responders

Please ensure that Lifeline has the following information about each person acting as a Responder. Also, record the information inside the front cover of this User’s Manual:

• Name

• Phone numbers – home, work and cell phone

• Whether or not the Responder has a key to your home
