24-hour Emergency Response System

Lifeline, a 24-hour emergency response system, helps individuals live independently by providing emergency help at the touch of a button. Lifeline subscribers have a base unit installed in their home and can access help by pushing a button that is worn on the wrist or around their neck. When subscribers press their Lifeline button, the unit automatically dials into the Response Center. Lifeline calls are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Subscribers to Lifeline pay an initial set-up fee of $40
($20 for LifeStyle members) and a $30 monthly monitoring fee.

Lifeline has been offered to the community since 1984 and currently provides support to more than 300 subscribers in Decatur and surrounding areas.

For more information about Lifeline, please call 1(256) 973-2184.


Camp Bluebird

North Alabama's Only Adult Cancer Camp

With support from Decatur Morgan Hospital Foundation, Telephone Pioneers of America, and Pepsi of Decatur, this three-day, two-night camp for adult cancer survivors is held once a year in the fall at Camp McDowell in Nauvoo, Alabama.

Campers will experience the following:

  • A time for listening and learning.

  • A time for sharing and caring.

  • Discussion of lifestyle adjustments in coping with cancer.

  • Learning how to give and receive family support.

  • Education about medically related concerns and treatment
    side effects.

  • Nutritional information.

  • Creative outlets through the use of arts and crafts.

One of the special activities at each camp is building birdhouses. The significance of the bluebird houses is derived from the Telephone Pioneers' project of preserving bluebirds in the Southeast, and hence the name, "Camp Bluebird."
