Clinch River Home Health in Clinton has received a $30,000 grant from The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The money will be used during the next six months to help support Clinch River Home Health’s Senior Safety Program to help provide Life Link Medical Alert Systems to the homes of clients who need the protection of 24/7 emergency assistance with the push of a button.
The Life Link Medical Alert Systems are provided at no cost to the nonprofit organization’s clients.
“Just pushing a button on the pendant brings needed help,” a press release said. “Each alert system is activated with three easy steps. Four contact phone numbers can be stored, and automatic 911 dialing occurs if none of the contacts are available. The wireless pendant provides two-way voice transmission for safety, security, and peace of mind for seniors living alone as well as their contact friends and family.”
The press release said the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee is a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life, and it has announced grants to 121 Tennessee organizations as part of a one-time Serving Tennessee’s Seniors grant opportunity. [Read more…]
