Life Alert saved my life! I woke up at 6:30 am, Tuesday morning, May 13th, not being able to breathe. Without even thinking I pushed my Life Alert button (which is always around my neck). Within minutes the fire department was here with an ambulance and I was rushed to the hospital ICU. I had a very serious type of pneumonia. I don’t know the words to tell you how grateful (an understatement) I am. I spent 6 days in ICU, then a month in a special recovery hospital. I am 93 years old and next month will be 94. With Life Alert around my neck I am aiming for 100!



07/22/2014

I fell outside my front door; I cannot get up if I fall. I was within range of my Life Alert button so I was able to push the button. The Life Alert operator was not able to hear me, but sent 911; they also called my family to check on me. Excellent help, very responsive, altogether a positive outcome.



07/22/2014

Being 84, and having two knee replacements, falling is a no-no as I am not able to get on my knees to get up. When I fall I just press my Life Alert button and they get help for me. Life Alert is wonderful! Thank you.



07/22/2014

I fell at home and could not get up. I used my Life Alert. All my contacts were immediately notified and the proper medical help were here within minutes. Thanks, Life Alert, you really delivered as promised in your ads.



07/22/2014

I was sitting in my rocker watching TV when I got this strong heavy pain across my chest. I hit Life Alert and I was rushed to the hospital so fast. If it wasn’t for Life Alert, I wouldn’t be alive today. The next time I called Life Alert I passed out, and when I called I went to the hospital for two days. While in the hospital I had a stroke! Thanks to Life Alert, I’m still here. Thank you, Life Alert, keep up the good work



07/22/2014

My mom had a pain in the middle of her chest and they responded immediately and stayed on the line with us until the paramedics came, which was quick. It was an acid reflux attack - that was good - but I was not sure because my mom is 93. I was told those kind of attacks are painful and where it was I was very concerned of a heart attack. But all turned out well, Life Alert is just that Life Alert! I am grateful for all staff.



07/22/2014

My mother fell and couldn’t get up. [EMTs] came to her rescue, checked vitals and transported her to the hospital. Everyone associated with Life Alert was very professional and informative. Thank you, Life Alert.



07/22/2014

My hip came out of its socket again! The Life Alert operator had phoned my son-in-law next door. I had been yelling to the phone and the operator was soothing me. My son-in-law came in and was able to talk to the operator and confirm that paramedics were arriving as we heard the sirens. The operator was patient and kind. Thank you so much for your wonderful service.



07/22/2014

I fell getting out of the shower and couldn’t get up. Immediately a voice came on my box and kept talking to me until help arrived (a few minutes) what I didn’t know they also alerted my daughter who lives close by. She arrived the same time the paramedics did. I feel safe having Life Alert.



07/22/2014

Tripped over bed stand (foot), lost balance, strained right rib cage, and took pain pills for 3 days. X-rays showed no break. Life Alert was very polite and got EMTs and paramedics to my house within 5 minutes of call. I’m very thankful for Life Alert.



07/21/2014

Fell in my home and dislocated my elbow- pushed my Life Alert button and help was at my door within 5 minutes. My family was advised of my accident and that I was taken to the ER! I recommend Life Alert very much - it is better than all these alarms people have in their homes.



07/21/2014

Someone had gained entrance into my apartment and when I got home I was missing some personal info, they had also taken my Life Alert pendant, it was in my apartment because I have the mobile one in my purse. You guys are fantastic!! I got my pendant replacement promptly and I will never, ever be without my Life Alert!!!



07/21/2014

I fell backwards out of the shower with the shower curtain and rod landing on top of me. It was very scary. Thank goodness for my Life Alert button; help arrived quite fast and got me up and moving. The EMTs here are very good.



07/21/2014

I have COPD with less than 1/3 lung capacity. I couldn’t breathe and called Life Alert, they immediately [detonated] my call numbers and the ambulance arrived within 15 minutes as we live in the country. On the ride to the hospital I heard the attendant tell the driver to hurry, there was no chest sounds. Five days in the hospital, but thanks to you I am alive and healing. Thank god for you.



07/21/2014

Life Alert staff responded promptly and with care. They informed my daughter and son of my fall and stayed with me until paramedics arrived and assessed my situation. I didn’t need to go to the hospital, [only] help to get up. My experience with Life Alert had been good.



07/21/2014

I had fallen on the floor and tried moving to touch my button, with god’s help I touched it and the [Life Alert] person on the other end talked to me until help came and gave them all my information. It made me feel not alone, even when I had help. Then she let me know she was leaving.



07/21/2014

I lost my balance and fell and could not get up, even though I tried and tried. Life Alert sent medics (fireman) here right away, and called my neighbor who also came. They checked me out and escorted me to my bedroom, very courteously.



07/21/2014

I was getting off my bed when I slid onto the floor. I have 3 herniated disk, sciatica, and neuropathy of the feet; so it’s impossible for me to get up by myself. Life Alert did a great job, I had no injuries.



07/21/2014

I fell and hit my head on concrete. I pushed the button and Life Alert took care of the rest. Notified my family, called the ambulance, and all went well from there. I highly recommend Life Alert to all we come in contact with. You are a definite life saver.



07/21/2014

I was very impressed with Life Alert when I needed help. My husband has a balance problem and is a diabetic. When he fell he just couldn’t get up. I pushed the button and a voice answered, I told them the problem. [Life Alert] told me an ambulance was on the way and stayed on the line until the ambulance came, during the paramedic’s exam, and until he was put in the ambulance and on the way to the hospital.



07/18/2014

I have a breathing problem and I can suddenly find myself not being able to breath. When I push my Life Alert button, someone comes on and saves my life. I had my little button not more than a week when I fell outside my house and [EMTs] were able to help me. [Life Alert] has helped me every year and I thank you.



07/18/2014

My mother put herself on the floor (did not fall), but I could not get her up myself. EMT’s arrived within 10 minutes. [Life Alert] person on the phone was helpful and stayed with me or checked with me often. Good service!



07/18/2014

My 89 year old mother had a nosebleed that could not be stopped, because my husband and I were both out of the house mom pushed Life Alert. Police and ambulance were there within minutes and controlled the nosebleed and transferred her to the hospital. Thank you, Life Alert! P.S. Life Alert was in contact with me in a timely manner- I met the ambulance at the hospital.



07/18/2014

I fell and could not get up. I was able to talk to Life Alert and have them contact my son for help. Without Life Alert, I would have been stuck on the floor alone until someone came in to find me. Thank you so much for this wonderful service.



07/18/2014

I missed the chair when I sat down. I was not hurt but sat down hard on the floor. After trying to crawl around to pull myself up on something, I was too weak to do so and called Life Alert. I told [the operator] there was no hurry and I just needed a strong person to pull me up. Within minutes, 4 fireman came – got me up – asked if I was hurt and wanted to go to the hospital and I said no. Within a short time, Life Alert called to see if everything was ok and problem solved.



07/18/2014

My mother used Life Alert on numerous occasions. She felt very comfortable living alone after the first time she fell and Life Alert operator was there to help with dispatching the paramedics, keeping her calm and alerting the family members. Life Alert was there during her trip to the hospital with professionalism and care, and we would highly recommend their services.



07/18/2014

I fell between my chair and my bed - I couldn’t get up because my knees wouldn’t work. I didn’t have anything to pull up on so I called Life Alert. [EMS] were here shortly, it was raining but they came immediately – they were very nice and helped me up. I didn’t hurt myself at all- just helpless to get up.



07/18/2014

My mother is 92. She fell on a Sunday morning and was promptly attended to by the city’s ambulance service taking her to the hospital. Just as the commercial states- for loved one having elderly parents who live alone and want to continue with that independence, Life Alert is a blessing.



07/18/2014

I was vomiting and sick, could not respond to the caller. She waited until I was able to speak and was very reassuring that I would be okay. It was very comforting to know that there are people that genuinely want to help. It is very reassuring that I know there is someone to help. Thank you, Life Alert.



07/18/2014

My aunt fell during the night and could not reach the phone so she used Life Alert with her pendant. Life Alert contacted emergency help and then called my sister’s home and my home. They also continued to talk with my aunt while she waited for the emergency personnel. Life Alert also kept in contact with my sister letting her know when the medics arrived and waiting to hear that she arrived. My aunt, my sister and I were very pleased with the great service.



07/17/2014

My 89 year old mother recently fell at home. I had tried to reach her by phone but to no avail. When I arrived at her house, she was semi-conscious. I immediately called Life Alert and was guided step by step in what to do until the medics got there. They stayed on the line the whole time. It was such a good feeling to know I was not alone. From the voice in the box to the 911 operatives no step was left unturned. The immediate care and attention given to my mother at that time was unsurpassed. I will be forever grateful to Life Alert for their expertise and compassion exhibited during a crisis.



07/17/2014

My heart was racing for about 24 hours and I couldn’t get any relief. Emergency was here at Hood River within minutes to take me to the hospital where they could treat me. This is the first time since about 2004 I’ve had to use Life Alert and I am so happy with them.



07/17/2014

I have been with Life Alert for years, have recommend to many friends and family. May 2, early a.m. I was very sick, nauseated, called on my Life Alert button, they were here in minutes. My blood pressure was 39, I had immediate surgery, had pacemaker installed. Intensive care for 3 days, house in 6 days doing good. “Life Alert saved my life”.



07/17/2014

I have had Life Alert for several years, but had never had to use it until the last few months – they have responded very good. The last time I fell, I just had no way to pull myself up, so I pushed my button around my neck and they quickly responded. I wasn’t hurt, so I had them call my son next door and everything was fine then.



07/17/2014

My father suffered two TIA’s (small strokes). Life Alert representative was on the line quickly and called EMS. Person stayed on the line until EMS came, gave history and medications. They kept in contact with me while we were waiting for EMS to give us updates.



07/17/2014

I fell down 2 times and could not get up. How wonderful to have someone talking to me, [Life Alert] sent help real fast. 2 times I was bleeding a lot from my allergies. Help came again and I went to the hospital. I feel safe day and night. Thank God for Life Alert!!



07/17/2014

The day before I called I had a shot, started having breathing issues, I got really bad. I tried the breathing treatments, helped very little but got bad again so I called [Life Alert]. Women stayed on the phone with me till they came, it was comforting cause I was by myself and to know you guys are around means a lot cause I am not alone, and you are only a button away. Thank you for being there.



07/17/2014

There was no one home with me when my husband started having trouble breathing. I did not have any one to help so I called Life Alert. They did not hesitate, they called all my children and an ambulance and my husband was taken to the doctor. Thank the Lord and Life Alert.



07/17/2014

My father fell while in the garage and was unable to get up. He pressed the [Life Alert] button and because he was in the garage he was unable to respond to the prompts. Emergency was sent. I was contacted at work and was able to speak with the emergency personnel. We decided to transport my father to the hospital to get checked out. He is now fine.



07/17/2014

After I fell when I hit part of the chair’s leg, I landed on my buttocks and couldn’t move – was able to finally reach my cane and reach for my Life Alert button, which was my life saver – Thank God. Two Life Alert workers came shortly and lifted me up – one on each side – that relieved my pain as they guided me up very professionally – a job well done.



07/16/2014

My mother had fallen twice. The first time was in the bathroom. She hit her head on the tile floor. She realized she was bleeding and pushed her Life Alert button. The response was immediate. I was notified and told what was happening at that point. Then I was notified again that an ambulance was taking her to the hospital. Mom’s second fall was in her living room. She hit the floor hard and had much bruising to her face. Again she pushed her Life Alert button and again the response was immediate. I was very impressed with the immediate response once the Life Alert button is pushed. When I was notified I was told what was going on, who was there, and what was being done. I was kept up to date with follow up calls as the situation changed. The responder was very professional and seemed genuinely concerned about my mother and her situation. I would recommend Life Alert to anyone, especially for elderly people living alone.



07/16/2014

My mother fell and could not get up. I could not get her up either, nor could we get her up together. No neighbors were seen nor answered my call for help. She had been on the floor several minutes, so I decided to call [Life Alert]. They were there in a jiff. Mom was lifted off the floor. The whole episode took very little time. Thank you, Life Alert.



07/16/2014

I awakened, just before midnight, and knew I was extremely sick. I made it to the bathroom, started having cold sweats and knew I needed help. Pushed my Life Alert button and someone responded immediately! EMT’s and an ambulance arrived shortly. The person on the line kept reassuring me that they wouldn’t leave me until help came!



07/16/2014

Life Alert has helped me so many times. In May of 2014, I became very dehydrated from some type of virus. The paramedics were called and helped me get to the hospital for IV’s. Did not have to stay but, [spent] 2 days in the hospital. “Thank you” for all that you do to help others and especially “senior citizens.”



07/16/2014

Life Alert operator was on the box with me very fast, had rescue on their way while still talking to me. I think the one thing that impressed me was the Life Alert operator giving medical info to rescue that I didn’t know and my wife couldn’t respond. I can’t think of anything better than one easy push to someone who cares.



07/16/2014

I fell and was unable to get up. I fell on my walker and alerted Life Alert and the paramedics came very soon. They took me to the emergency room at St. Joseph’s hospital. Thank God I had my Life Alert necklace on.



07/16/2014

Between 3 and 4 in the morning on May 22nd, I needed to get up to use the bathroom, but when I tried to move, the pain hit so hard and fast I couldn’t move. After struggling to get up I somehow made it to the bathroom and just fell to the commode, couldn’t get up so I pushed my Life Alert and they answered, called the ambulance and my family. My daughters arrived first and all the EMTs were very nice and easy getting me up and to the gurney.



07/16/2014

I fell in the kitchen and I called Life Alert in my bedroom. [EMT’s] came soon. They put me in the chair and checked my body for any fractures. I told them to transfer me to the hospital to check for any fractures. I went to Marina Del Rey hospital. No fractures and I was sent home.



07/16/2014

My dad sat in his car and could not get out on his own, so he called Life Alert. The emergency response came and helped him into his house. My dad said they picked him up like he was a kitten. They made sure he was ok and then left. All was well again.



07/16/2014

Went out to get the newspaper, was holding the door with one hand and my little dog came out behind me. The wind just closed the door behind me; bare foot and very cold. About half hour later pushed my little dog in the doggie door, the wind was too much for us. We had to call Life Alert, and the loveliest, loveliest people [came on]. Love them, thank you. Great people.
