For the first time in four years, I left my mom's house feeling that she is safe. It felt like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Henry Ford Lifeline has saved my father's life many times. I would recommend anyone who is concerned about living alone to have this service.
- Sue, Roseville
As the sole caretaker of my 87-year-old mother, I wouldn't be able to go to work without worry if she didn't have Lifeline. My mother needed medical care and Henry Ford Lifeline called the first responder (a neighbor) and then me in record time. I could not do without it. I would recommend your services to anyone.
I thank God for people like you and your company. God bless you.
