TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
Dear ones at Life Alert, every incident we’ve had, has been 200% positive, caring and helpful. In the middle of the night at 2 a.m. I was awakened by a gentlemen from Life Alert. I was sleepy and told him I must have laid on it [the pendant] and there wasn’t any emergency. He asked me if my friend was ok, there are two of us here that have Life Alert call buttons. We are both 86, I said she was ok and wanted to go back to sleep. He wouldn’t let me until I went to check on her, sure enough, she had fallen out of bed and couldn’t get up. She didn’t remember pushing the button. It must have gone off when she fell. I was so grateful to the man who insisted I go check on her. I got some help and we were able to get her back in bed. Thank you, thank you for sending help quickly.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
My mom pressed the Life Alert button because she felt funny. Her arms and thighs were hurting a lot, and she was panicking. She summoned Life Alert, and the paramedics responded quickly and were there when I got back from an errand. One was talking to the Life Alert dispatcher while the other one was attending to my mom. They entered all of the meds that Life Alert gave them and I updated new info. After treating my mom, they determined that she didn’t need to go to the hospital. Life Alert called two times to see if everything was all right. The paramedics were astounded at the amount of information that Life Alert had about my mom! Good job!

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
No matter what the circumstances that causes my father to push the button, Life Alert has always responded in a timely and courteous manner. My dad wears the button 24/7 and he knows that if he ever finds himself in need of Life Alert, all that he has to do is push the button and that someone will ALWAYS come to his rescue. And for that Life Alert, I say thank you and God bless!

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
I fell out of our van that began moving from our driveway into the street. My husband was unable to help and called Life Alert, their response was within minutes. Our courtyard was filled with a fire truck, 2 police cars, and 2 EMS units. After x-rays at the ER, I was sent home, no broken bones. Due to continued extreme pain that night at home, I passed out. My husband then called Life Alert again. EMS came very quickly, at the ER the CT scan revealed 3 broken ribs and I was in the hospital for 2 days. I am very thankful for Life Alert and for responding so quickly.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
On several occasions, dad, a former weight lifter…but now in his 90’s…fell. Dad knew how to fall without getting hurt, but it took 2-3 men to get him on his feet again. Life Alert came to the rescue! The appropriate people were contacted. They arrived quickly…but Life Alert stayed on the line, keeping me calm and giving us the necessary instructions. What a blessing! Again Life Alert was there “for me”. The wonderful Life Alert specialist/operator was so supportive during those difficult moments! Thanks to the Life Alert paramedics and a policeman who all arrived to give much needed assistance (in a major city where a 911 call might not have been handled in such a speeding way - if at all).

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
I’m so thankful for Life Alert and feel so much more secure since they are a part of my life now. Recently, I fell coming out of the bathroom and hit my head on the hardwood floor. Back of head received all the pressure. I pushed my Life Alert button. They immediately answered and called an ambulance and all of my contacts on the list. EMTs checked me out and made certain I was ok. Extra important because I have a brain tumor and messed up neck. Life Alert also called me back several times to make sure I was ok. The caring response I received from Life Alert was awesome. I highly recommend them to anyone I know, especially to senior citizens who live alone.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
Life Alert is like having a body guard on duty. I was heating sugar water for the humming bird feeder. During which time my granddaughter came in with a problem which I started helping her with - I forgot the pot on the stove and the sugar water started to burn causing the house to fill up with smoke, causing the smoke alarm to go off. Within seconds Life Alert called me on the phone to see what they could do and if we were okay. Everything was okay and we were able to handle the situation. I recommend Life Alert to someone all the time.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
I was downstairs ironing and went to another room, tripped on a rug at the bottom of the stairs and fell flat on my knees, hitting my forehead. I pushed my Life Alert button and soon a few firemen and medics were by my side. Life Alert told them where they can find a key to get in. They were immediately by my side, and soon they had me strapped to a body board, unplugged my iron, and carried me to the ambulance and I was on the way to the hospital. Life Alert also called 2 of my sons, one works 25 miles away so he called his wife and soon both she and my son were at the hospital. After a 5 hour stay and x-rays it showed that I did not break any bones. I’m so grateful for Life Alert and the quick response I received.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
Approximately 7:00 a.m. I felt a sudden pain in my chest – heavy pressure – could not get my breath – broke out in a cold sweat – Never had this before! I finally made it to my lounge chair and trying to be calm and breathing, but the pain was unbearable. My brother had just left for work. I was praying it would go away – But it didn’t! I was still having trouble breathing with a crushing pain in the center of my chest. Before I knew it – the speaker w...as on and you [Life Alert dispatcher] were calming me down – asking me questions and guiding me with comfort. Before I knew it, the ambulance was here; the medics decided I should go to the hospital to be checked. I truly do thank you for your kind attention and consideration. You are a blessing to me – just knowing I’m not totally alone if I need you for any reason. May our loving God bless you all.

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
Life Alert has come to my aid two times. A year ago this last winter I had a chimney fire from my wood burning stove. My house filled with smoke and Life Alert got me help within 8-10 minutes. Last February I fell down my basement steps, cut my forehead, and bleed all over. I pushed the button on my Life Alert and the emergency people were here and my son, and I was transported to the hospital. Life Alert makes me feel secure; I live alone but I’m not alone with Life Alert.

FRAUD ALERT!

TESTIMONIAL OF THE DAY:
I had just lied down for the night. I heard a knock on my front door, no one there. Then I heard screaming, banging and cursing at my back door. It was a very angry young woman trying to knock my door down. I pressed my Life Alert pendant and heard the person answer my call. I was able to tell her I needed the police. They came in time to haul her off before she got in. The police said she was very much under the influence. I felt so good I didn’t need to do anything but push my pendant to get help.
