I had fallen getting out of a chair. I could not get up off the floor so I called Life Alert. They were very helpful and I required no hospital visit at this time.

It was 4a.m. and I tried to get out of bed. I could not stand up and had a lot of pain. I called Life Alert and they stayed on the phone with me and called the Fire Department and EMTs. The operator stayed on the phone with me until the ambulance took me to the hospital. I will never change to another service. Life Alert 100%.

I felt awful. I had severe abdominal pain and I started throwing up. It was different from the usual upset stomach. I pushed the Life Alert button and the paramedics came, examined me, and told me to go to the hospital so I went. A week later I had my gallbladder removed.

Why I got Life Alert is because I have seizures and I live alone at home. I was staring at the television and I felt a seizure coming on and I was lucky I did not black out. That’s why I got Life Alert - so the next time it happens I can press the button.

I was in church. My right arm started to hurt and I couldn’t breathe. Some friends helped me go outside as I didn’t want to disturb the service. I pressed the button and explained to Life Alert what was happening. They called for an ambulance to take me to the ER.

When I pressed my Life Alert it was a very short time before someone was at my door. They helped me up and decided to take me to the ER. They were very gentle with me and I appreciated it very much. I was very weak and did not realize it. Thanks to all who helped me.

I became ill in the night and it went on for a couple of hours (vomiting and diarrhea). My daughter thought I should call Life Alert. They sent help immediately and got me to the hospital. I had a viral infection.

Within days of activation, my new Life Alert button saved my life. I fell down in my den on Sunday evening, May 13, 2018. Unable to get on my feet after some 30 minutes of attempts, I was fortunate in possessing a Life Alert button. Five fire fighters soon arrived. I agreed in going to the hospital emergency room, having a CT scan and MRI upon arrival. This was followed by a second MRI, then by surgery on early Wednesday morning to excise a large meningioma tumor on top of my skull. This has left a horseshoe scar pattern on my head. I stayed in the hospital and rehabilitation hospital for three weeks, from Sunday to Saturday receiving speech, occupation, and rehabilitation therapies at my home. At this time, I have returned to walking some 60 minutes in my neighborhood, unassisted by a cane or walker.

I was weeding my flower bed. I lost my balance and fell. I hit my head on a gardening tool which caused my head to bleed. The lady on the phone was pleasant. Terrific response of the ambulance team. I am very grateful.



10.18.2018

I was pulling weeds out of the flower beds, and I was sitting on a stool and I got too close to the edge. When I started to get up, I lost my balance and fell off. I have supplementary arthritis and I couldn’t get up on my own. Neighbors were gone and I had to call Life Alert. [The paramedics] helped me up and wanted to see if I needed to go to the hospital. I said no.
