I was running across the yard when I knew I could not stop before I hit a glass (jalousie) wall. Rather than hit the wall I made an effort to stop as fast as I could, thereby hitting the ground with great force, breaking my left arm. My Life Alert button brought immediate response.

I had fallen outside my room. Realizing I was unable to get up on my own, I pushed my button. I had a quick response from the local paramedics resulting in no injury. Without Life Alert, I may have lied there for quite some time without help. Thank you.

Mom had fallen in the bathroom and couldn’t reach the phone. She pushed her Life Alert button and within a few minutes I was called. If not for Life Alert, she would have been there until the next morning when I came to check on her.

I am 91 years old and was cleaning the commode, lost my balance, fell and hit my head on the commode. So I pushed the Life Alert button and within seconds I had help. I would highly recommend that everyone who lives alone has a Life Alert.

I had fallen and couldn’t get up - couldn’t get to the phone - I couldn’t get up so I pushed the button. In a few minutes someone got the key and were here to help me. The ambulance was soon here and I was taken to the hospital. I’m 92 years old. Everyone who lives alone needs a Life Alert - regardless of age.

I fell outside and landed on my right side. My face, nose, and head ached. I was not O.K. My headache was frightening me and that’s why I used my Life Alert. The paramedics checked me over and I decided I was O.K. and feeling better. My age is 82.

I am 86 ½ years old. I have had a pacemaker since 2006. On April 15th, as I was going to bed something strange lapped in my head, I knew something was wrong. I pressed my Life Alert button and was answered right away. My heart beat was very slow, Life Alert called EMS. They were here in 10 minutes. One of the leads to my heart had broken. I was taken to the hospital, the lead was replaced and I am fine. My heart rate dropped to 19. Thank you, Life Alert.

I had coffee in the living room. I took the glass mug to the kitchen but it slipped from my hand and broke into many pieces on the kitchen floor. I fell on top of the broken glass and had cuts over my body. I bled profusely. Fortunately I wore Life Alert, pressed the button, and in less than five minutes the ambulance arrived. The aides stopped my bleeding and rushed me to the hospital ER.

I felt like I was going to pass out and I could not think so I pressed my Life Alert button and help was here almost immediately without flashing lights and sirens. The attendants questioned me and examined me and took me to intensive care at the hospital where I stayed for four days after being admitted immediately.

My 83 year old mother lives alone. At 2:30 am she woke up and tried to get out of bed only to realize she could not use the left side if her body, and knew she had a stroke. She pressed her Life Alert pendant and her friend and neighbor (who lives close) was notified first and came over, followed soon after by an ambulance. I was notified next, living 4 hours away I left to come see that my mom had gotten the emergency care she needed right away. This I believe was instrumental in her recovering as well as she now is. Thank you!
