Styled like understated jewelry on an adjustable length cord, the Classic Pendant Personal Help Button weighs less than ½ an ounce - only half as much as other medical alert buttons!

Consider the Classic Pendant benefits:

  • Wear it in the shower, where falls often occur, as it's waterproof.
  • Wear it around your neck, so it’s accessible by either of your hands.
  • Use it to call for help from anywhere in or around your home.

Caution: Choosing your help button

It is important that you and your caregiver choose the Personal Help Button most suitable for you. Please consider the following:

Pendant Styles

The Classic, Slimline and AutoAlert Pendants are worn around the neck; this helps make the button accessible by either of your hands.

Caution: The Pendant's neck cord is not designed to break away. Therefore, it can pose a choking risk, including the possibility of death and serious injuries. This may apply to wearers in wheelchairs, using walkers, using beds with guard rails, or otherwise protruding objects upon which the cord can become tangled. Wearers for whom this is a concern may wish to consider the Wrist Style method.

Range may vary due to construction of your home and distance from the Lifeline Telephone or Basic Unit.

Please consult your caregiver or Lifeline Program on which Help Button style is most appropriate for you.
