BVNA and Link to Life

The Berkshire Visiting Nurse Association is affiliated with Pittsfield-based personal emergency response service provider Link to Life. This collaboration facilitates the delivery of personal emergency response services to Berkshire Visiting Nurse Association home care clients. Personal emergency response services provide individuals a fast and simple way to summon help in an emergency. Link to Life subscribers wear a help button on their wrist or around their neck and are connected to a 24-hour a day emergency response center by pressing this button. Highly trained response center operators assess the emergency and summon the appropriate assistance. 

Often utilized by seniors who either live alone or spend time alone, personal emergency response systems have been shown to dramatically improve patient"s ability to obtain assistance in the event of a medical emergency. Studies show that seniors who receive immediate medical attention after a fall are 26% less likely to require hospitalization and have an 82% reduction in the likelihood of death.

Link to Life has been a national provider of Personal Emergency Response Services for the elderly and medically at-risk since 1979. Headquartered at 297 North Street in downtown Pittsfield, the company employs a staff of 50 locally with an additional 112 individuals working throughout the country. The company partners with healthcare providers, hospitals, home health agencies and state Medicaid programs throughout the United States.
