Lynne Metz, Director of Volunteer and Special Services at ALMH,
expressed her gratitude to the participants and sponsors for their
support of the Lifeline program.
“Through fundraising efforts like ‘Tis the Season, the ALMH
Auxiliary has been able to keep Lifeline going over the years,” Metz
said. “Lifeline offers family members peace of mind, helps keep
people in their homes longer. We are thrilled to provide Logan
County a local resource for Lifeline. We install and provide
maintenance on the units ourselves and that means a lot to our local
seniors,” said Metz.

Lifeline is an easy-to-use personal response service worn as a pendant or a
wristband that ensures assistance and a quick response from emergency services.
The service is a vital component to helping more people in our community live
independently and safely in their homes. The event profits help fund the
purchase of new Lifeline units and replacement batteries. ALMH staff members
install, maintain, and educate the user and family members in homes and
apartments throughout Logan, DeWitt, and eastern Mason Counties.
