Phone line out for 2 weeks

My 91 year-old mother has a landline through Full Service Network in the 15108 area. The actual wires are owned by Verizon. She has been without a phone for almost 2 weeks. Her medic alert is dependent upon the phone. She fell the other day but fortunately she was able to get up this time. You cannot get a cell phone signal in her apartment. Full Service is getting the runaround from Verizon. Verizon says they are outside digging - no sign of anyone out there. Unfortunately her apartment building owner has a deal with Comcast so she can't get any other company. She had a bad experience with Comcast so she doesn't want to go back to them.
