LCSS Senior Safety

Leelanau County Senior Services strives to provide programs that promote safety in senior's homes.

Emergency Pendant:

   LCSS offers an emergency pendant called the "Freedom Alert".  A person wears a small pendant with an emergency call button on it.  When there is an emergency, the button is pressed; 9-1-1 is dialed automatically.  There is no monitoring fee, service charges or contract.  There is a one-time cost to purchase the system.  Please contact the LCSS office regarding cost, financial assistance may be available.

File of Life:

   File of Life is a mini medical history which can be posted on the outside of one's refrigerator where fire and rescue personnel are trained to look for it.  It can also be carried in a wallet or purse.  Free of charge at Leelanau County Senior Services. 

Medical Equipment Loan Closet:

  The safety medical equipment loan closet has a supply of walkers, canes, shower benches, toilet risers, commodes, wheelchairs, etc., that have been donated to loan out to seniors who have a need.  There is no charge for the equipment.  Please call our office to see if a certain piece of equipment is available.
