Beth Hill New Coordinator for Lifeline Personal Response System

Beth Hill New Coordinator for Lifeline Personal Response System

 

When Beth Hill, the new coordinator of the Mid Coast Senior Health Center’s Lifeline medical alert system, speaks about Lifeline, she speaks from experience and from the heart.  She discovered the service several years ago when while caring for her father who had multiple sclerosis.           

Hill follows in the footsteps of Rhode Jones, whose name and face is well known throughout the community for her personal caring and meticulous attention to Lifeline subscribers.  Jones recently retired after 10 years with Lifeline, which she expanded from about 300 to approximately 600 disabled and elderly individuals from 33 to 103 years old, in 25 communities from Yarmouth to Wiscasset.          

Lifeline helps individuals maintain independence.
