E.A.R.S. Lifeline & Medication Dispensing Programs

E.A.R.S. Lifeline is your local medical alert provider. We have been in service since 1982! We support older adults and those with chronic medical conditions living at home by sending help whenever the unexpected happens…a fall, medical problem, mobility issue or security concern. Our local program covers more than a 50-mile radius of Noyes Hospital, including Livingston and surrounding counties.
