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