Two years ago this past June, [my daughter] gave me the gift of Life Alert as a birthday gift. At that time I lived in a community and, after a couple of health scares, [my daughter] felt very far away and bought the gift as much for herself as she did for me. Just knowing there was that extra layer of protection in case of an emergency was reassuring to both of us. Fast forward two years when, having never needed to use it, I was actually looking at it as a big waste of money. (My daughter’s note: mom and I actually discussed it and decided that, with me living right next door now we’d go ahead and cancel as soon as the contract expired because it just wasn’t needed. She had ME!). In the wee hours of the morning during the last weekend in June my opinion changed when I found myself on the floor of my bathroom coughing up copious amounts of blood. In my panic and despair I couldn’t for the life of me remember [my daughters] phone number, plus the phone seemed a million miles away. I pressed my Life Alert button and help was on the line within seconds. The Life Alert responder stayed on the loudspeaker with me until paramedics arrived. A second responder called [my daughter]. Long story short… Life Alert saved my life. Even with [my daughter] next door, with no way to reach her she was no help at all. Just having someone “nearby” had not been enough. I’m not a salesperson for Life Alert. But if anyone reading this has ever thought, “Hmm, I wonder if a service like that is something I should have?” The answer is YES! For the price it’s worth every penny. How quickly the cost is forgotten when you know the service saved your life. (My daughters note: don’t be caught thinking, like we did, that just having someone nearby - or even living with you - is enough. People go places and do things and there are many times you are alone. It only takes one time of being alone at home when something bad happens to open your eyes and see the benefit of having that extra layer of protection available. In this case, I was sleeping soundly right next door while mom was lying on the floor.) If this quick story helps anyone at all, I’ll be thrilled. I just wanted to pass my story along in case there’s someone out there who finds it helpful. And by the way… the ulcers I didn’t know I had are healing very nicely, thank you very much. The only thing keeping [my daughter] and I out of the flower gardens is the weather, not our health!

I slipped from the side of my bed. I was not hurt but could not get up. I sat with my feet straight ahead. The Life Alert people were quick to respond to my call. They checked me well before they helped me to my feet. They checked again, BP, pain (none), balance, etc. before they left me with my son. Their service was very fine.

Life Alert is the best thing I could have done for my father and auntie. My father loves to stay alone and has had several emergencies; Life Alert was always on time with getting him help and calling me with the response. Thank god for Life Alert.

My mother fell down and could not get up. Life Alert responded as soon as she pressed her button on the necklace she wears. The people who helped her were very kind. We were all so happy with the service you provided.

My husband has spinal stenosis which has affected his legs. His legs are weak - and he sometimes loses his balance. We really appreciate Life Alert’s prompt response and also the prompt response of medics. Thank you.

I had a fall and could not get up. I was on the floor and [EMTs] picked me up. They put me on the stretcher and put me in the ambulance and took me to the hospital and [Life Alert] notified my niece because I live alone.

I fell and could not get up. Life Alert notified the paramedics and they came in about 15 minutes and helped me up to the couch. I had scraped both arms and a knee - they bandage that and asked me if I wanted to go to the hospital. I refused. They left, I was good to go with the help of my cane!

I fell in the house, but was not hurt. I just could not get up on my feet. I pushed the [Life Alert] button, the voice came on asking if I was hurt and saying help is on the way. Within 10 minutes, 2 men were there to help me up. Very nice guys set me on my feet, made sure I was ok, and left.

I had cataracts removed from my left eye at beginning of July and did not realize that I should walk carefully. I fell; as I fell I hit the closet door and scraped my whole left arm on the handle. When I pressed my [Life Alert] button on my neck, your response was immediate and comforting.

I fell and couldn’t get up, so I pushed the button on my Life Alert necklace. Life Alert contacted EMT/ambulance and also my children. EMT came right to my house and took care of me until ambulance got to my house. Life Alert dispatcher stayed on the line until my daughter arrived.
