I was hesitant to get this for myself, but three days later, the medical alert saved my life. I fell in the shower, pressed the button for help, and got help fast. Alert1 saved me and now I tell all my friends to get it.

My Mom fell last night & I got a call right away. Thank you Alert 1.
Also her wrist band broke a few months ago & they sent her a slap on bracelet, which she likes a lot better. It conforms to her wrist & is less bulky.

My mom has Parkinson’s and needed to go to the hospital. My sister pushed the button for help and within a few minutes Alert1 answered and sent the ambulance. Thanks for being there this time.

I was admitted with a diagnosis of pneumonia which as it turns out could just as well as have been just virus. I had asked that this time my daughter not be notified due to the hour (she has to work) and I called her from the hospital after I was admitted and I knew she was up. I appreciate your honoring my wishes in this matter. Thank you for your care and concern . Lucy
