Stettler & District Health Emergency Line Program

      Criteria

  Often times, family members are concerned about the applicant's health problems and feel the Helpline would minimize risks that are being taken. The applicant themselves must feel a need to have the system in place, otherwise the machine is not used properly, and thus ineffective. Generally, most of the applicants are elderly, handicapped, mentally ill or convalescent.


        Cost

  Instillation Charge                  $70.00

  Monthly Machine Rental        $35.00

  Extra button for Spouse         $5.00

  So with extra button, monthly rent will be $40.00 instead of $35.00.


  At the time of installation we will request the installation cost and the first months rent. ($105.00)
