Red Cross Lifeline

The American Red Cross Foundation has recently begun to push their Lifeline Program towards senior citizens after its recent expansion.

The LifeLine service is a small button worn by the user to be pressed after a fall or dangerous injury in which the senior citizen requires help. The Lifeline response service is available 24 hours a day. Executive Director at the American Red Cross, Kevin Kirby, says that the Red Cross specializes in this type of assistance.
