Victoria Lifeline is celebrating its 25th anniversary and offering a bargain to residents of the RM of Headingley.
Until the end of June, it is dropping the installation cost of its personal emergency response service from $70 to $25.
"We’re reducing the cost in recognition of our anniversary," said Lifeline operations manager Susan Dewalt.
Headquartered in Winnipeg, Victoria Lifeline provides service to Headingley and other rural communities. Clients wear a button around their necks or on their wrists which they can press if they fall or have another type of emergency. The button sends a signal through phone lines to Victoria Lifeline, which has operators available 24 hours a day. Dewalt said service is available in English and French, and translators can be used for service in 75 languages.
Any Headingley resident interested in using the Lifeline service can call seniors resource coordinator Patti Cutts at 204-889-3132 ext. 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
