TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY
My husband collapsed on the floor due to severe stomach pain. I am handicapped so I was unable to get him up off the floor. I pressed the button and Life Alert sent an ambulance. He immediately received treatment. The paramedics gave him medication for pain and nausea. He also received oxygen and even had blood drawn in the ambulance. By the time we reached the hospital, he was already seventy percent recovered.... We were back at home safe and sound in 3 hours. We got Life Alert several years ago, because I had a choking incident but this time, Life Alert saved my husband's life. Thank you, Life Alert.

I was having difficulty breathing, because I have blocked stents (3). I felt I needed to be checked. The firemen who responded to my call to Life Alert were very professional and showed me kindness and concern. They felt it best I be taken to the hospital.

Early Sunday morning 2am, I got up to go to the bathroom and the pain shooting from my hip to my left foot was like lighting shooting down my leg. 4am I finally called for help and the fire department was here in 10 minutes and took me by ambulance to the hospital. My blood pressure was 244-180 – thank God I have Life Alert and that my grandson and daughter gave it to me.

2 occurrences – 1. Smoke detected by Life Alert. A very professional person spoke with me and alerted the fire department for us. No fire ensued. 2. Husband fell in bathroom and I could not lift him up. Life Alert responded and 2 EMT’s quickly came to the house and carried him on a chair to the hospital. He had fractured 4 ribs. Thank you all!

I am 96 and need a cane and walker to get around. I have had a [Life Alert] pendant for many years. On 05-20-18, I slipped on my hardwood floors and fell backwards, cutting the back of my head and needing 8 stiches. I pressed my button and the ambulance came and away we went. Wonderful service.

I have narrowing and blockage of veins in my legs – an inherited condition. My vascular surgeon also felt I had an infection of my soft tissue, and put me on an antibiotic. This was a new one for me, and I had an allergic reaction. Life Alert saved the day! They sent help and off to the hospital emergency room I went. And a new pill!

I am a 94 year old woman, I was sick with nausea, fever, and was feeling very sick, when I called (pushed the Life Alert button). The response was fast, courteous, and very helpful, the operator stayed on the line and help arrived. I had pneumonia and an infection but am back at home. Thank you.

It was early morning and I was getting out of bed and apparently passed out, I thought I could get up if I could reach my night stand but couldn’t. I had my Life Alert bracelet on and pushed the button and my son was contacted and was here within minutes – ambulance was called and I was taken to the hospital.

I had been sick for over a week. I was not getting any better. I did not know what was wrong. My daughter contacted Life Alert. [EMT’s] were here very quickly and were very kind and helpful. They were also very efficient, got me to the hospital in good time. I certainly appreciated it very much!
