I have high blood pressure and have been under a lot of stress over my brother who has cancer; also he is/ has been listed as my emergency contact. He is at the stage of illness where he needs care himself. Knowing this I have no immediate help for myself, I am 80 years old. My blood pressure was very high and I was fearful of having a stroke with no one to help me. The emergency personnel attended me and reassured me my [blood pressure] machine was inaccurate. I had a doctor’s appointment schedule the next day. I am very pleased with Life Alert and the help I received and feel help will be there should I need it in the future.

My mother lives by herself. She was going to sit down and fell before sitting. If she didn’t have Life Alert it would have been the next day before I would have found her on the floor. Life Alert has saved us several times. Thank you.

Dad slid from the bed to the floor while attempting to use the urinal at approx. 5am. I didn’t hear him call for me at first and he pushed his button. Life Alert was on the phone and called paramedics from the fire department that lifted dad back in bed. No injuries. Thank you!

My mom fell and hit her head and it was bleeding. She hit her Life Alert button and Life Alert responded very quickly to assist her. The people at Life Alert contacted my brother and me. When my brother arrived [EMTs] were pulling in.

My mother fell one morning while changing her bed linens. She was unable to pull herself up off the floor and used her Life Alert. The Life Alert staff called me after contacting the paramedics. By the time I got there she was waiting in a chair with only a few scrapes and bruises. Without Life Alert, she may have spent a lot more time alone, on the floor, with serious consequences.

Early one morning as I walked from the carpeted area to smooth surfaces, my feet slipped out from under me and I took a hard fall. Even though I had no broken bones, I did not have the strength to stand – only enough to push the Life Alert button. The company called my daughter and the paramedics said I was unhurt. Thanks, Life Alert!!

I took a very bad fall in my bedroom, between the bed and metal table. It was bad enough; when I fall I cannot get up off the floor. I have arthritis in my knees and everywhere. I used my Life Alert; the EMTs came and insisted I go to the hospital to the emergency. There they took X-rays from head to toe, no broken bones. 4 weeks later I still have a knot below my left knee and swelling all below and to my toes. I am never without my Life Alert.

Mother said she was getting out of bed and got her foot caught in the blanket and fell forward hitting her head and face on the floor as she landed. Life Alert stayed on the phone with mother and talked with her until help arrived. Life Alert kept me informed as well with the initial call that mother had fallen, and they called me again with an update when mother was being transported to the hospital. Life Alert has been most helpful for us as mother has fallen 4 times since April.

I fell on the floor in the kitchen – was totally unable to get up – the floor was wet and I kept slipping more and more. It finally dawned on me I was wearing my Life Alert button. Life Alert answered immediately and the fire department, paramedics and ambulance were at my door in less than 10 minutes and off to the hospital we went because I banged my head on the cabinets behind me. Thank you, Life Alert, for your super prompt response and the emergency people response also.

My husband had pain in his left foot and we contacted Life Alert. Life Alert dispatched 911 and also stayed on the line with us till help arrived and passed on all his info to EMS and fire dept. Life Alert is very helpful, and I have to say thank you and have a great holiday.
