I had just fallen over in my apartment and it took three and a half hours of me yelling to get my neighbors to help me. They picked up the spare key, opened the door, and helped me to my bed, but I learned my lesson then. I didn't want to go through that ever again, so I went ahead and got it. The pendant is working for me and I'm very happy with the service so far. I haven't had to use it for an emergency yet but I have called in to confirm with two different people that the device is activated and working properly. If I need to use it for some reason I can just call them from the system and they'll come and find me. I've already paid them for the next 3 months but I do hope I never have to use it. The support team has been very helpful in getting everything set up and activated. I don't have to worry anymore about passing out, falling, and hitting my head on the floor. I'm hoping I won't need to use their services, but when I feel really dizzy I can just use it to call an ambulance and get picked up. I don't have to figure out how to get help when I get a dizzy spell.
