Re: Medical alarm systems You may want to try this service before you commit to a long term contract.
True story: we put a Lifeline in for my 88 year old Mother In Law to give my wife some piece of mind. MIL was a bit hard of hearing, a little confused at times and not at all tech savvy.
Took a lot of repeating to make her understand what the pendant was for.
The service that called over the intercom feature monthly to test system really scared her. She "heard voice OF God" from the other room but could not find anyone.
When she fell and cut open her head, she called my wife and asked is she should push the button?
While it made my wife feel better, we both agreed it was probably more of a pain than a benefit.
The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
