My mother-in-law fell and was not able to move from where she fell. I hit the alarm on the base and was able to give and receive information as needed. Life Alert staff made the situation go smoothly by being almost in the room with us, helping to calm a situation while waiting for the ambulance to arrive



08/07/2020

I have had Life Alert for many years and only recently I have had to use it. Twice I had bleeding and since I am on Elguis (blood thinner) I needed immediate help. Life Alert was prompt and I had help in ten minutes, and I got excellent care immediately.



08/07/2020

I bent over to pick up a carton of Ensure in my kitchen. As I stood up, I lost my balance and kept going over backwards onto the floor – could not get up by myself. Pressed the button on my alarm. Life Alert came right on. He told me they called 911 and help was on the way. The medic who was first to arrive was my son-in-law (not on duty that day). He is an EMT and a heart tech. Life Alert got help to me in about 12-15 min.



08/07/2020

On my first use of Life Alert I was thrilled that I received help in 10 minutes. Those two people were so kind to me. I’m so glad and my three grown children are also [glad] to have the peace of mind to have Life Alert in my life.



08/06/2020

Mom’s sodium level dropped to critical, and the doctor called and said to call the squad to go to hospital. We called Life Alert and they had someone there immediately. She has also called Life Alert a couple times when she heard someone outside the house and they stayed on the phone with her – she feels safe and secure having Life Alert.



08/06/2020

I fell and something fell on top of me, trapping me on the ground. I called Life Alert and the EMT’s were there in minutes. Life Alert was great and saved my life.

My mom fell getting out of bed and broke her hip. She had the Life Alert on her wrist and pushed the button. The EMS crew had the code for her back door lock. So the service worked well.



08/06/2020

My 80 year old wife has fallen a number of times. I am not able to pick her up. The fire department is only ½ a mile away. They respond very quickly after receiving your alarm. We have had your system almost 4 years.

I fell in the kitchen. My husband could not pick me up. I called Life Alert and they came right away. I was so happy I had Life Alert.



08/05/2020

I’m 99 and live alone. I was having phone problems. My phone wasn’t working and I needed to notify people. Also, I couldn’t leave my apartment for months due to Covid. So, I was truly stranded but not alone, since I have Life Alert. I used my Life Alert button and they helped by calling the people that I needed to talk to. It took months to fix my phone problem, and during that time, Life Alert helped me contact and reach people that I needed, such as my son. All I had to do is push my button and Life Alert made the calls for me. I didn’t know they did that for people, but they did. I want to thank them for all that they did for me. They are always nice and kind.

I had shooting pains across my chest for over an hour. They weren’t stopping, and I called Life Alert. The ambulance was here promptly, and I stayed at the hospital until 11:00pm. The doctor came in and said they could find anything wrong, and said I can go home – and to call if the pain returned. So far it has not. I’m 85 years old.



08/04/2020

Due to mis-prescribed medications, my 92 year old mother was comatosed when I arrived at her house. I notified Life Alert by pushing her button. The Life Alert rep was very in tuned to our situation and was very conscientious prior to the EMT’s arrival.

08/04/2020

I rolled out of bed onto the floor. I can’t get up without assistance and the Life Alert operator stayed with me on the telephone until the emergency personnel arrived. The operator kept updating me on the EMT’s arrival time which helped a lot. The [amount] I pay a month is definitely worth it.



08/04/2020

I believe I was sleep walking and curled up in the chair I used before my husband died. Fell asleep and when I woke up, I was unable to get out of the chair. I have bad knees and had bent them up to my chest and could not get them to straighten out. So I called for help.



08/03/2020

My son has a TBI and physical disabilities. He fell and pushed his button and I was called. By the time I got there, [my son] was safely back in his chair. The people that helped him were professional, courteous and “kind.”

I was trying to get out of bed in the morning. I was close to the edge and slid down to the floor. I could not get up so I pushed my [Life Alert] wrist equipment.

Life Alert got me help real fast. I was taken to the hospital. A couple of days later, I was taken back to the hospital. I had two heart surgeries within two weeks. I’m home now and doing well. I wear my Life Alert necklace all the time. I hope I don’t have to use it again.

07/29/2020

I was taking a shower and I slipped and fell in the bathtub. I was unable to stand up and was lying in the tub. I pressed the Life Alert device on my tub and told the operator what happened. My daughter was notified as were the police and fire dept. They came and took me to the hospital to be checked out. Life Alert operator was very helpful and reassuring during this time.



07/29/2020

My mom was experiencing chest pain. Her doctor recommended we call EMT’s since offices were closed due to COVID. Life Alert response team answered our call and stayed on the line til EMT’s arrived. Staff member would ask how we were doing and gave updates as to arrival times. Once EMT’s were on the scene, staff spoke with EMT’s and signed off.



07/29/2020

I was feeding our two little dogs, then stood up and turned, and ended up on the floor, landing on my butt, hurting my tailbone. Then I used my [Life Alert] button to call for help. Help answered in three minutes. The firemen were the ones that were here in the next five minutes. I must say we live five houses down from the fire station. I was hurt, but was happy for the quick all around help.



07/29/2020

I became ill while at home and I live alone. I called Life Alert and was immediately assisted. The person with whom I spoke was calm and very helpful. I was assisted when a neighbor came to my aid.

I had diarrhea and got very weak and couldn’t get up. I started having a hard time breathing and I pushed the Life Alert button and Life Alert sent an ambulance to come and get me. They assessed the situation and took me to the hospital. Life Alert notified my daughter that they were unable to speak with me and they sent an ambulance. Life Alert kept my daughter notified about what was happening with me.

I was short of breath- oxg level went down in the 50’s- my husband called Life Alert and the response was very quick- I had passed out and they intubated me and gave me oxy on the way to the hospital. My contacts were all called- very pleased with response.



07/28/2020

My mother fainted in the kitchen. When she came to, she pushed her button. The man on the Life Alert stayed on the line until the ambulance arrived. Meanwhile, someone from Life Alert called me, her daughter, to inform me of what was going on. Your staff has always been very courteous and helpful.



07/28/2020

My mother tried to push a box on the floor with her foot, and instead tripped. She flew over a counter and landed head-first, then on her arm/shoulder. Her head was fine but she broke her arm just below the shoulder joint. Life Alert had help arrive promptly. Without Life Alert, there’s no telling how long she would have stayed on the floor in pain.



07/27/2020

My mom fell in the kitchen, hitting her head on the doorjamb. She split an artery in her head causing much bleeding. Thankfully, she did not pass out and was able to push her “Life Alert” button. Life Alert contacted the police and EMT’s, staying in the line with her until help arrived. Then we were contacted. It saved her life.



07/27/2020

My mom has Alzheimer’s and fell out of bed onto the floor. My dad couldn’t pick her up. He called me and I told him to press his [Life Alert] button. Paramedics came and spoke to me. Life Alert called me and my sister. I’m so pleased with the people at Life Alert as they were kind and very helpful. Both my parents were ok and I felt much better after speaking with them as my sister and I live thirty minutes away.



07/27/2020

Like the commercial says: I fell and I couldn’t get up. Life Alert sent paramedics 2x and an ambulance once. Living alone, I’m happy I got this service.



07/27/2020

Returning from shopping, as I entered my apt, my left leg gave way and I fell to the floor. I was not injured anywhere, however I was unable to get up. Activated my Life Alert pendant and the dispatcher had help on the way in no time at all. She was very courteous and frequently checked to be sure I was alright.



07/24/2020

I was in the backyard, behind a building, pulling weeds. One would not come. I started pulling harder and either my hand slipped or the weed came up. I fell backwards and hit the gravel. Didn’t really hurt at the time, tried to get up and that was impossible so I hit the [Life Alert] button on my wrist- within a short period of time my husband found me and [EMS] appeared on the scene. Took all the vitals and checked the chair my husband put me in, then carried me into the house- talked about ER. I refused. Then the next morning, decided I should go to ER- [EMS] came out again, put me in an ambulance. The outcome, three broken bones in pelvis. ER called a bone DR and he came over to see and everything was taken care of. Now I am walking, driving and working on needed house work- am doing great, thanks to everyone.



07/24/2020

Have had several emergencies since signing on with Life Alert. Always came through for me when I have fallen at home. Since I’m a widow and live alone (except for my dog companion) I feel totally comfortable knowing the Life Alert folks are here to help me when needed!? Have made recommendations, but don’t know their names.



07/24/2020

My husband fell. He was not injured but could not get up. He used his Life Alert pendant, the paramedics came and helped him up. The Life Alert operator was extremely helpful. Every older person should have Life Alert.



07/24/2020

I fell on my driveway. I called Life Alert. The dispatcher asked if I was hurt. I only needed help getting to my feet. She alerted the fire dept. They sent a crew to assist me. She stayed with me and assured me until the FD arrived. She was very professional. I was very pleased with Life Alert’s response. Five stars.



07/23/2020

77 years old. A ladder threw me and stomped my right shin. After sitting up I realized my leg had a serious injury. So I pushed my Life Alert button. I then hobbled into the bathroom to step into the tub and sit on the edge. I received calls from my emergency contacts, Life Alert, and the paramedics within minutes of pushing the button. Two and a half days in the hospital and 50+ staples. I am home and doing well.



07/23/2020

My mother (95 years old) slipped out of her bed and landed on the floor on her back. I called Life Alert and they responded very quickly- [EMS] got her up, checked her blood pressure and checked to see if there were any other bruises. They were very professional and courteous.



07/23/2020

On March 21, 2020, I woke up at 3:45 AM to go to the bathroom. I have a bathroom in my bedroom. When I got out of bed, I started to feel dizzy. I have a dresser next to the bathroom so I was holding on. Suddenly I found myself on the floor. I could not reach the Life Alert bracelet on my wrist because my hand was under my arm. I finally managed to press the button. A man called my name and I told him the problem. The EMT came very quickly. They were very nice and helpful. I highly recommend the Life Alert system.



07/23/2020

I fell into my closet, bruised my knee and cut my arm in two places. I was bleeding quite a lot so I called Life Alert. [EMS] came in a hurry with an ambulance and took me to the hospital. I was released the same day.



07/22/2020

My dad had become unconscious and I pressed his Life Alert unit to call for help. They had all of my dad’s information so they were able to expedite an emergency vehicle to the house immediately. What a relief not to have to try to remember my dad’s medical info at that moment. Life Alert representative stayed on the line until EMT’s arrived.



07/22/2020

I was experiencing severe abdominal pain that moved to my right side. I had never felt pain like that before. I pressed my Life Alert pendant and they handled everything. When the ambulance arrived, Life Alert representative was still on the line. I would recommend Life Alert to anyone who lives alone.
