Lifeline of the North Bay, a Personal Emergency Response Service (PERS) of the Petaluma Health Care District, is one of the top five Lifeline Programs in the United States, currently serving approximately 3400 community residents across six counties. Lifeline with AutoAlert is the first pendant style Help Button that can automatically call for help if a fall is detected and the senior or other individual is unable to press their button because they are immobilized, disoriented or unconscious. What makes Lifeline of the North Bay different from other programs? PHCD's Lifeline of the North Bay provides a quality product AND quality service, providing in home support and face to face consultation when needed. Many times we can offer same day or next day service. To find more information on all the Lifeline products, including a new mobile PERS and GPS PERS, and a Medication Dispensing Service click here


The Petaluma Health Care District launched a HeartSafe Community Program in collaboration with local police and fire, EMS, Petaluma Valley Hospital and American Heart Association in 2013. The purpose of the Program is to promote CPR and AED training, implement a public-access defibrillation network (install AEDs in public locations) throughout our community, and provide ongoing education and AED maintenance support. Sudden Cardiac Arrests (SCA) can happen anywhere, at any time, at any age. The ultimate goal of the Program is to strengthen our community's response to medical emergencies. The HeartSafe Community Program is managed by HEALTHQUEST, a service of the Petaluma Health Care District. To learn more about HEALTHQUEST CPR classes or HeartSafe Community click here.
