I got it because I can just push the button to get help. Plus, I got the little portable one that I can take with me or just put in another room in case I need it there. I wear it when I go outside. I've fallen before and gotten a couple of bruises and cuts because of that, but they always show up when I need them. They come out pretty quickly even though our place is hard to find. Last time I used it was when my husband was really sick with pneumonia. I was trying to get him to urgent care or just get to the doctor and he wouldn't do it. In the end I told him I'd push my button to get help and I did. They came out here in about 5 or 10 minutes and helped me out. They're always very courteous and pretty good. It's a life saver, but it's pretty expensive. When you're on a fixed income $45 a month can be pretty expensive. I wish it could be a little cheaper.

I liked the idea of having the GPS device that I could carry with me wherever I went. That way it would know where I was if there was ever a problem. They've always answered my questions. Even if I hit the button when I don't need help all I have to do is tell them it was an accident and that'd be it. They're very understanding. In December last year I fell outside and didn't have it on so I couldn't get a hold of my neighbor. I was lucky that I didn't pass out so I was able to get back into my house and push the button. They came out and helped me. So now I wear the pendant around my neck all the time and I feel good having it. There was a time when I ended up going to the emergency room because of a fall. My oldest son and daughter who live in Indiana were notified that I had fallen. They also notified my husband who was in another city at the time. I had actually forgotten that my children were on the call list for that short of thing, so it was nice to know that if anything happened my whole family would be alerted.

I got them 15 years ago simply because they seemed to be the right offer for me. I check the button about once a month to make sure that it's working. I actually did that last week since I hadn't done it for a while. I've never had to use it for an emergency but I pressed the button accidentally once while I was mowing the yard. I didn't even notice that had happened but they sent an ambulance out to make sure that I was alright. They even took my blood pressure just in case. They've been very prompt and the service has been satisfactory. I never have any problems with it, it just does what it's supposed to do and they're very nice.

We got it for my father since he has Alzheimer's. Some 4 or 5 years ago he just took off in the car and we couldn't find him for hours. After that, my husband found them and it just seemed reasonable to get it for my parents, especially considering that it also provided them with a way to call for help if they ever needed it. We had a few instances where my dad pushed the button and the paramedics were dispatched right away for him. Now he's in a facility where he's taken care of 24 hours a day, but my mother still uses it in case she needs immediate help. They seem to be very diligent when following up if there's ever an issue and everything works ok. It gives me and the rest of my family some peace of mind.

We got it for our daughter since she's handicapped and doesn't always have someone looking after her. She used to have another service but that one didn't help us if she left the house and that was one of our biggest problems. She would get out of her apartment and go places where she wasn't supposed to be. It just gave us more security to know that she had something she could use in case she fell or needed help while outside. She doesn't talk so it usually takes some time for her to get someone that can speak for her, but she has a special device that she can use to answer yes or no questions if there was ever an emergency. Luckily nothing really serious has happened yet. Most of the times the thing just goes off by accident when she's handling it. They always call and stay on the other side of the phone until they are confident that she's safe. MobileHelp is there when there's no one else looking after her.

At the time we signed up, the were one of the only companies that had the GPS feature in it. That really sold it to us since they could actually find you if you became sick while away from home. That was why we got it for my mom. One time she had a diabetic insulin reaction. She was on the floor above us and we couldn't hear her, so she pushed the button. We were the first ones to be called and they alerted us immediately that she was sick. I ran upstairs and was able to check on her and get her the help she needed. They've always been excellent. Even if you hit the button by accident they're very polite, helpful, and delightful. I've never had a bad experience with them. The button is waterproof so she can wear it in the shower. It's not cumbersome either. They've made it as easy as possible for an elderly person to use it without getting in the way. It's all well worth the money that we pay for the peace of mind that it gives us. If my mother gets in trouble she can get help right away.

I just saw an ad on the paper and thought to get it. I carry the GPS thing with me pretty much all the time. The only time I don't is at night when I recharge it. I've used it twice so far and one of them was a false alarm. Since I live in a small town the fire department and police department are just across the street. Thanks to the little thing, they and my neighbor who basically takes care of me can all get into the house without breaking any doors or anything. My problem right now is that it's hard to hear everything coming from the little GPS unit. Still, they always come through properly and if I need help with anything I make sure to call customer service. I'm fairly satisfied with it.

I've been with them for a long time now. At the time I got it I didn't know there was any other service out there. Now I know there's a lot of other companies out there that can monitor in your house, but not a lot of them can do that while you're outside. They're a very good company, I'm happy with them. I was in the drug store once and, I don't remember exactly how it happened, I fell back against a display and cracked the back of my head open. I pressed the thing and an ambulance showed up and took me to the hospital. They're very fast to help you. The people that work there seem to honestly care about you. They don't sound like they're putting on an act or anything and they don't try to sell me anything else. My only problem with the button is that it thinks that I've fallen when I'm just laying in my bed watching television. It's just very sensitive. Still, when that happens they do call me and follow through with me to make sure that I'm alright. I'm very impressed with the service. I get a call from them every now and then when the battery is running low. When that happens they send me another one that I can use instead. They also contact me if something is not working right. I had ADT for my home for a very long time and they tried to sell me one of these devices. I found out that they were trying to sell me the one that Mobile Help offers so, when I contacted them, they actually lowered my fee by $50.

I'm 87 years old and live by myself. At the time I was having problems with falling so, after my children saw this on the senior magazine, they decided to get it for me. I've had this service for quite a few years and, as a matter of fact, I just renewed with them this month. I've used it many many times and have been very satisfied with it so far. Most of the times I've used it have been because I fall and can't get up. I've also had episodes where I have a heart attack but they've come and helped me with those too. They are always very prompt to respond and very helpful. The person that responds to me always asks me if she should contact the EMTs or just my daughter. They always call her right away regardless and notify the right people. They don't disconnect and talk to me through the monitor until the EMTs or someone else has arrived to help me so that I'm calm. The people always get here very quickly and they even know my name. They're always very nice and check on me. I never get scolded if I call by accident or when I test it once a month. Sometimes I lose track of the days and my calls are not always on time, but a nice young man will call me to remind me about testing it. Thank goodness I'm doing a lot better now, but I keep the little buttons close by just in case. It's an essential thing for me now, it's almost like having a telephone. It's direct communication with someone that's going to get me help if there's an emergency. I recommend to anyone that lives alone because it doesn't matter how young someone is, you could always get into a situation where you need to get help. Right now I'm trying to get my oldest daughter to sign up for it still. I'm very thankful to have the little buttons. With them I'm never alone. I know they'll be right there when I need it.

We've had it for a while now and if I recall well the cost was one of the biggest things that convinced us of getting it for my mom. It was also the convenience of it all. We don't use it that often, but it's there for her when she does need it. It sits in the living room and we check it occasionally to make sure that it's still working. We also have the other unit in my mother's bedroom and she wears the necklace all the time, 24/7. My mother had to use it once when she fell in the shower. She couldn't get up but she was wearing the necklace and was able to hit the button. The intercom was in the living room but she was able to yell and talk to them. They got somebody to the house so they could help her. They've always been available and responded pretty quickly.

I did some research trying to find something that would provide us with the best service out there. The biggest selling point to us was the little GPS thing that you could carry in a purse. We've had no problem with them. Every time I've called and needed something from them, they helped me quickly and responded well. We had to have the wrist watch one replaced at one point. It was used so much that it broke. They took care of that problem quickly and we got the replacement in less than a week. My mom had to use it once when she fell. She pushed the button and was able to contact them and they, in turn, contacted me and my sister. We were able to get her help really quickly.

The deciding factor when getting this was the reach that the service had. My husband does a lot of work around the yard and sometimes he's out of sight from the house, so we wanted something that would still function if he was far away. I always try to remember to take the travel device with me whenever I walk out the door since that's the bit that works anywhere. One time my husband was raking the creek that runs through our property when he slipped and broke his neck. He was able to use the button to get assistance and everything worked out well. We've also had a number of occasions where my husband will be reading a book or something and drop it on the button by accident. Whenever that happens and the button goes off, they're always very accommodating and nice. We just tell them there's no emergency and things are alright. I don't think it's the cheapest service out there, but it's worth every cent. We've been very satisfied.

My father had a severe heart attack and, at the time, he had no security. The ambulance was very slow to get to our house and because of that I lost him. When MobileHelp came out I decided to get it for my wife and I so we could have some security. The price is good, very competitive. We've got the whole thing: both of us have the pendant in case we fall, the wrist band, and the mobile base unit too. The necklace and wristband are waterproof and very sturdy. I can shower with them and they're alright. They both hold up real well. They've replaced the mobile unit for us after 3 years of using it. They upgraded it, free of charge, and the battery now lasts for 24 hours. We're very happy with it. It saved my life about two years ago when I had a heart attack. They were at my house within 3 minutes and helped me.

The deciding factor in getting it for my mom was that, in addition to the base station which had a good range, they offered the cellular based connection that was incorporated to everything. It extended the effective range of it all and we felt that that alone was just priceless. It has been a favorable experience all around. So far she has only used it to test the system, but it has worked 100% of the time so we think it's really trustworthy. We haven't had any issues where we needed to call customer support. We did have a time when the system needed to be updated. My mom had had it for 7 years at that point so they needed to improve the technology that she had. They sent us the stuff and things went without a problem. It is certainly a knot in our expenses, but we get what we paid for. I think it's very useful for a lot of older people and their lifestyles. It can let people be both in and around their houses, but also gives them the chance to be out and about.

I used to have a different service before my husband passed away. That one didn't protect me anywhere outside of my home, it just went a few feet around it. Since I walk 3 or 4 miles a day and I'm not really ill, I wanted something that would know where I was so that it could call my daughters if I needed it. They were thrilled when I got it. I wear it all the time. Today I took it with me when I went for a walk around the golf course. When I go shopping I take the GPS with me, either in my purse or in my jacket. I basically never take off the necklace, even when I shower or go to sleep. Every time I call them to test the button, no matter where I am, they answer quickly and are always very polite and happy. I'm sure if I had an accident they'd be there to get me help if I needed it. One time I did set it off without meaning to. I was out in Florida and leaned on a fence. I didn't even know I had done it and they sent out an ambulance and firetrucks. The service is just excellent. There's only one thing that I keep telling them and they think I'm crazy because of it. I really don't like the black cord that goes on the thing that you wear around your neck. When you're all dressed up, you don't want to have a black quarter around your neck. A man that lived in a condominium back in Florida would always put it on a fishing line for me and I'd wear it that way. It worked just fine then but I wish they figured out a nicer way to wear it. Other than that though the they have been a reliable service. I feel secure having it all the time. If I accidentally go somewhere without it I feel very uncomfortable, almost lost without it. I have no complaints at all.

I picked it because the little gizmo that they give you has GPS and can go with you anywhere with you. I can call for help wherever I am, whether I'm at home or driving somewhere. I've only had to use it once when I fell. I didn't hurt myself but I was afraid that if I tried to get back up on my own I would fall again. I pressed the little button and asked the local help person to call the place where I lived, which is a retirement place. They did and told them I had fallen and needed some help to get up but that I wasn't hurt. They ended up sending an ambulance and I wish they had just waited until the person that works there had come on to make the decision. Still, their customer service is good. They contact me whenever the thing needs charging or something. They have taken care of things promptly. It's worth the money.

My wife has had a stroke in the past, so we needed something so she could be safe while no one was around. We've had it for a long time now and it's there mostly as a precaution in case she needs it. We've never had to use it for an emergency but she has set off the alarm a few times. Since she wears the pendant, that sometimes gets pushed by accident whenever she sleeps or if she leans against something. Whenever that happens they're there instantaneously. Within a few second they're there asking us if everything is alright. They're always on the ball and care about their customers. They are willing to take care of any situation that might come up.

I got them for my mother because of their price and what they had to offer. She lives with me and has only used it once. It was early in the morning and she couldn't get out of bed or reach me. So she pressed the button and it was very effective. They responded very quickly. Every time I call them and ask them about the equipment and whether or not it's working, they've been very efficient and quick at responding and solving things. Sometimes the call doesn't get picked up all that well but that's not because of the equipment. That has more to do with the cellular signal. Still, I like that there's someone out there looking out for her.

My daughter was the one that found them for me. I'm still very active and I'm in and out of the house all the time. This thing is working out for me really well since I can take it with me and go anywhere. I can go up to the lake cottage which is about 100 miles away from my home and it'll work just fine. The button is easy to use and carry both in and outside my home. I've been pleased with it. I've been fortunate enough in that I haven't had to use it. Whenever I call to check on the thing I've been satisfied with the response I've gotten. I've also set it off accidentally while working in the yard and things like that, but they've responded to those calls well. I had to get the pendant replaced since it was broken and they were very good and responsive about it.

At the time it felt like everyone was going with them and buying this system. So I decided to get it since it would let my mom and dad leave the house and go anywhere they wanted. In the years that we've had it we haven't had any problem yet. My mom has used it quite a few times now, mainly because she has been on her own. In the last few months she has fallen a couple of times and has not been able to get up herself. They've gotten help for her right away and done everything we've needed them to do in a timely manner. We did have problems one time with a part of the equipment, but they sent us a new piece through overnight shipping and we got a new one the very next day. Our experience has been very positive so far.

I saw it advertised on television and decided to give them a call and get it. I've used it quite a bit since getting it. Every now and then my wife won't be able to breathe. When that happens we push the button and in a few minutes the paramedics are out here, taking care of her. Last July I used it too when I had a heart attack. I pushed the button and in two minutes they were here and helped me out. Once a week or so I also test the button to make sure it's working right. The response I get is great every time. Anytime I've called with any kind of question they were more than willing to answer them. I have never had any problems with them.

My daughter wanted to know that I was safe so she got this for me. I wear the pendant just about every day and carry the little base with me when I go out. I'm very grateful to have it. On one occasion I fell and couldn't get up. They called my son-in-law who was just in the other room. I did have to argue with them a little so that they would call my son-in-law since they seemed to want to send emergency services right away, but that just wasn't necessary. They called everyone that I needed them to call and I felt very protected. Once in a while the alarm goes off when I bump it against something by accident. It protects me well but it's very sensitive. They're always very concerned about me and make sure that the battery of my pendant works well and everything. They've helped me in testing and rebooting things just to make sure that everything is in working condition. They're very courteous and helpful when I call in.

I got it for my father in law since it didn't need to have a landline to use it. He wears it when he's going to be away from us so that he can get to us if he needs help. There has never been any problems that we couldn't work through with them. The biggest thing has been the batteries but, as I said, we were able to work through that. My only suggestion would be the alert they send to loved ones when the button is activated. It would be more convenient if they could send text messages rather than emails. My email is just slower to get through my phone compared to a text message, so if they could do that it would be wonderful.

It has a lot of good benefits in all different areas. Whether for, medical, fire, burglary, or anything, it goes a long way, and I'm proud to be a customer of Mobile Help. They give you good, adequate information, enough to go on; you feel safe and secure. Any question I ask, they come along with it, they don't hesitate. So when I ask any question on a particular item they successfully answer it. The device itself works and when I carry it outside, it works wonderfully. For me it's good that when you live by yourself, independently, you feel secure. You can do almost anything when you have Mobile Help, when you need the help.

Visiting Angels suggested it to me. MobileHelp is very simple to install and set up. I didn't have a chance to test the device, but they called and walked me through the testing of my device to make sure it worked. I like the simplicity of the device, but I would suggest changing the wristband for the wrist itself, because it produces a rash. I also have a concern about the necklace. It's extra sensitive. I don't know if it's a good thing or bad, but I had to take it off recently and I dropped it, and it called in an emergency. I've also gotten on my bed and the same thing happened, so I'm concerned that I might over use the help and I don't want to do that so much like I'm crying wolf. They call if I need them within a matter of minutes, though; it's no more than 5 minutes.

I've fallen a couple of times in the past and my kids wanted me to have something for when that happened. Since I kept seeing their ads on TV, I decided to go ahead and get it. So far I haven't had to use it yet, I haven't had it for very long, but I've tested it. After setting it all up I pushed the button to make sure it worked. The alarm went off and it caught me by surprise, but everything seemed to work ok. That was the only time I dealt with customer service and they were very nice. My only two problems with it is that I don't like the necklace at all and that the service is a little bit expensive.

I ride motorcycle with my daughter and about a year and a half ago we had an accident. I couldn't get up to my phone, so I was stuck until someone else called 911. After that my daughter thought it best to have something that I could use if that happened again. Since MobileHelp wasn't home-based like all the other services we saw, we went with it. The service is convenient. Their customer service is very helpful and polite. Even when we realized that they had all my information wrong, they were very nice about it. They're sending me out new papers now. You can always get someone that's right here instead of someone out in India.

They were recommended by a friend. When I first called I got a great response and they answered every question that I had. I felt very comfortable with them so I just went ahead and ordered it. I have not had to use it since I got it but I was impressed with the prompt attention they gave me when I needed help. I was having a problem with the device, it was not charging well, so I gave them a call. The technician was very thorough and kind in explaining everything to me. It turned out that I had not connected the charger correctly and needed to change that. He talked me through how to fix it in a matter of minutes and things worked well after that. The 3 pieces of equipment that they give you are very easy to use. I have the hand held device, the watch, and a pendant that I can use in the shower. I just very comfortable with them.

I had seen them on television. We've had to use it a couple of times already and every time they do what they should do. They call us and come out to get my husband if he needs them. I do have some feedback about the button. They should change the wristband and make it a little bit bigger. I don't like wearing the necklace type thing. I'm also worried about the speaker thing that you have to use to talk with them because we have to speak very loudly into it. Since every time we've needed them we've been at home, that hasn't been a problem at all, but we don't know how things will work out when we're out.

It was just so much! It had better coverage, it had better equipment, and the service has been great. I was provided with so much information, and every time I do my tests on the equipment every month, there is always someone right there at the snap of a finger to help me. There is just wonderful, wonderful service, and I'm totally enjoying having it in my home. They give you the right equipment. There's a medallion that will notify them if you should have a fall and call. If you wish to wear a watch, they also provide that. It's just wonderful, and the monitoring equipment is just great. I haven't had to use it yet but I just get up in the morning and put it on and I just wear it all day long and it just really makes you feel secure and you know it that if something does happen that day, someone's there to help you. Its an all-around great company, and I am fully satisfied with the equipment, the customer service, and the safety level that it gives me. I've already recommended them to a couple of friends.

I was with another company that didn't cover my actions while I was out and about. It only covered when I was at home. That's why I changed to Mobile Help. Compared with the other companies that I've checked into, they're very reasonably priced. I'm handicapped from back surgery, neuropathy, and vertigo, and I was falling quite a bit. I haven't had to use mobile help since I had it, but it gives me security in case something did happen. I'm also a care giver for our fifty eight year old mentally challenged son, so I have a lot of responsibility. Mobile Help helps me feel secure, both in my home and out and about. I am very happy with it.

From what I've read and from what other folks said about it, I thought it would be a good idea to sign up. I haven't had any problems at all. I like that I can wear the bracelet instead of the necklace, that's just easier for me. They do everything they're supposed to do and they're pretty consistent about their service. When something comes up they get a hold of me. They were also very patient with me after I lost my husband last October. My son in law had to come over and help me because there were just times when I couldn't answer when they came on. He helped me get everything resolved together and things worked alright.

A few years ago I was still working a lot, now I live in Florence, Oregon, which is a retirement city. Because of that I thought it would be good to have one of these just for security. I usually go out and play bingo a couple days a week, so I liked that it can still monitor me while I'm away from home. I can get a hold of medical services in case I fall. The buttons are very sensitive. I wear the one that goes around my neck and the alarm has gone off a lot whenever I turn around in bed at night or if I accidentally bump it. Other than that though, it's fine. I've been with them for 5 or 6 years and I haven't had any other problem with it. It's a little high on the price side of things, especially since I'm a senior citizen and I live on a limited income. Still, it's well worth the price that I pay for it.

I had used it before until I switched to a different company when I left the state. They were not as good, so when I moved back to Florida MobileHelp was the first company that I called. I was just very happy with them and how they had treated me in the past, they had done a good job. Recently I fell and damaged my leg pretty badly. I was bleeding profusely and couldn't get to the phone but thank god I had the device around my neck. I called them and the paramedics got here within minutes. They saved me quite a lot of grief. Their equipment works well, it holds up and everything. I feel very safe with them because no matter where I go it's there. I can take a train, travel on plane, or just go shopping and they'll know where I am. Though the device that you wear on your wrist or on your neck is not as attractive as I think it should be. I'd love it if it costed less money too, but it's a necessity in my life. The price is fair and pretty competitive compared to other companies. Still, I'm satisfied with it. I would not live without it.

We had another service for my dad before but since MobileHelp had the feature of letting my dad leave the house if he needed to so we decided to give it a try. It's a really quick and convenient service. We've used it twice, but both times have been by accident. The first time happened when we just got it. The button got pushed somehow and all of a sudden we heard somebody talking to us from the living room. We were trying to figure out just what it was until we realized it was the mobile unit. We canceled the ambulance and everything, but we realized then that it all worked great and that they responded quickly. The second time happened a couple of weeks ago. My dad was going out in the car so they put on the necklace and had the monitor with them. When he put on his seat belt, the buttons got pressed and continued to be pressed. MobileHelp was trying to contact him but couldn't because of that. They sent out the emergency team and got a hold of me. I was able to find them and got everything straightened out. They worked really fast for us. If it had been a real emergency things would've been alright. I was very happy about that.

I liked it since it had the fall feature and they were the kind of company that is easy to work with. I haven't had to use it, thank goodness, but it has been reassuring for my mother to have it in case she falls. The button is very sensitive so it has been going off a lot. She has to be very careful when she takes it off or sets it down since it could go off just with that. Still, when that happens they call us right away and ask us if everyone in the home is ok. If we don't hear the alarm go off, we always get a phone call. The people are always very professional. We can leave our home knowing that my mother will be alright. It's a good program.

I didn't do a thorough check on what other companies offered and their prices so I just ended up going with Mobile Help. They just seemed to offer everything I needed and since I've fallen 6 times in the last year and ended up with two black eyes because of that, I felt like needed it. Sometimes they will call me and tell me that they received an alert even though nothing happened. I really appreciate that. I know that they are paying attention and attending to any emergency that might come up. Anytime I've had a question and call them they all seem to be very knowledgeable about the system. They give me the answers that I need without hesitation. On an occasion I fell down the three steps of my front porch and the thing didn't really catch on to the signal. They didn't call me or anything and I'd like the thing to pick up 100% of the falls, so I'll have to check with them. The device itself is a little too big. With the way technology is now I think they should be able to make it much smaller. Besides that, I'd like the monthly charge to be cheaper, theirs is one of the highest prices out there. I'm 84 years old, so every dollar counts.

The main thing was that it was affordable. There were other services that were $100 some dollars for the first payment and after that every monthly payment was a lot too. With MobileHelp you had different options for payment plans and they were pretty affordable. I haven't really needed to use it, but I know I have it if I do. I test it every month to make sure that it's working alright. It's a really handy thing to have with me when I'm away from my apartment. Customer support is very nice, supportive, and compassionate. They're really understanding too, that's why I like them. It makes me feel great to have the protection that I need and I know I'll be safe if I ever do need it.

I started having bizarre allergies where my tongue would just swell up and sometimes even my throat. When that happened, I needed to be taken to the ER. Since I live alone, my children wanted me to have something in case that kept happening so I could be protected. I have the wrist watch and the neck pendant and I think they're both good. I also have the bigger unit that I take with me when I have to go out. I usually wear the necklace when I'm in my house. I haven't used the device yet, but I feel comfortable having it around. Whenever I do my test, they are quick to pick up. It's reassuring to know that they help is there.

Several of my friends have it and since it seemed like it served their needs rather well I thought it'd be good for me too. I think I've only called them once for an armband that I wanted and I haven't received it as of yet. I'm still pleased with them though. The button has gone off by accident several times. On one occasion I was over at a friend's place and we were playing cards. She leaned against the table and that set off my system. The ambulance went to her house and everything. She set it off once again but we were able to abort the alarm the second time so things went well. The system worked as it needed to.

I looked at the advertisements of several services and they gave me just what I wanted. At the time I just didn't have anyone else around to help me and, on two occasions, I actually fell and had to wait a long time before somebody actually came along to help me out. With MobileHelp, they would know if I fell and would make sure that I was ok if anything happened. It also had the best price around. Their people have been very helpful and nice. I haven't used it yet, thank goodness, but I wear it all the time, including when I walk out to my yard or when I'm out and about. I also have the one that goes right around my neck, I like having them both. I never go out without it and keep it right next to me when I sleep. There's also another piece that I keep in my living room. It gives me a sense of safety that I just didn't have before. It's there if need it and I feel more at ease than before.

I got it for my wife and I because I liked a lot of the features and things that they included. They have a lock box so that emergency people can get in without breaking down my door. I also liked the speaker system since we can have one of the units in the bedroom and another one in the main living room area. Along with that they also gave me the fall detection button, a regular pendant, and the watch. Both my my wife and I use it. She is disabled and has fallen a couple of times so I was afraid that if I wasn't home she would be in danger. I usually use one when I'm working out in the shop since I work with a lot of power tools. The devices are easy to use. The fall pendant has a magnetic latch so it can't strangle you or hurt you. It's very easy to pull it off your neck without hurting yourself. I check it once a month as it was recommended and I've set it off accidentally too. They always respond within 20 or 30 seconds of pressing the button. It's an easy system to deal with. There's almost no maintenance needed for the speaker and I really appreciate that. The documentation that they include is great too, it made the setup very easy. Customer support has been very helpful whenever we've needed them, but we really haven't had many reasons to call them. Having it makes me feel safer. It gives me peace of mind.

My husband is on the early stages of Alzheimer's so I wanted to get something he could use to call for help if something happened. He doesn't know how to dial 911 anymore, so we needed something that was simple for him to use when I'm not around. That was the driving force behind us getting it. He has the little necklace and the button that he carries in his pocket. All he has to do is push the button and someone is going to be able to talk to him immediately and help him if something happens. I wear it too. Since it has GPS I have it with me all the time when I'm away from home, even if my husband is with me. If I need help for myself or for him I can just push the button and they will be able to find me and talk with me if something is wrong. Thank goodness I haven't had to use it, though there have been times when I've set it off accidentally when I'm working in our yard. It's just amazing how quickly they pick up the phone or call me back to see if we're ok. Somebody will always come and give us assistance. I think it's a very good service, especially for women who are the primary care takers for their husbands. I believe we don't really think about our own safety until something happens and then it's too late. With this it is really simple to get help. The booklets that they send you are very easy to understand, even for someone like me who is no good with computers. Even setting it up and testing it is just very easy. I'm quite happy with that. Everything they told me when I first called them to ask about the service has been very accurate. I thought it was going to be more expensive than what it has been for the kind of protection that it provides us. I'm pleased with the price and the fact that I can pay for three months at a time. It gives me some comfort to know that they'll be there to talk to me pretty quickly. I have all the confidence in the world that it will work.

They offered the features that my dad needed. When we called the customer service representative was very helpful and had a lot of knowledge. They were very kind and patient when answering our questions. My dad has used it once, though it wasn't necessarily for a medical emergency. He was out driving and the bridge that he usually crosses over was closed that time. Since he has no cellphone and he couldn't find his way, he used his device. The representative actually guided him to where he needed to go and he arrived to his destination. They are just excellent! Everyone there is just very helpful and patient. I'm very happy that my dad agreed to get this device and I'm really glad that his experiences with them have been positive. It's well worth the money and we're all very pleased with it. Overall it's a very effective service.

I just went and read reviews online. To be honest I didn't research much, but I picked them from the top reviewed services and I'm really glad I did. I'm very pleased with them. I usually put the sign they gave me on my door. That way when I leave I don't forget to take the base thing with me. The equipment itself is very light, which is very important since I wear it around my neck. It's so light that I don't even notice that it's there. There was a time I had to use it when I fell in my apartment. I was on the floor and couldn't get up so I called them. Even though I was pretty far away from the little machine the lady that came on was able to hear me and I could hear her. In 5 minutes they were in my apartment to help me. They were very nice and everything just happened very quickly and efficiently. That quickness is very important, especially if you have a heart attack or something like that. It works really great.

I read a magazine ad where it just sounded like a good service. I talked to them and it seemed like they had the best price for what you got out of it, so I decided to go ahead and switch. I haven't had it for very long so I haven't used it, but I always wear the button around my neck. It's very lightweight and easy to carry it around. If I go out then I take the handheld one with me. I always have to remember to take that one out with me and put it in my purse, but if I have it I'm covered when I'm out. Actually, they gave me a little reminder that I put on my doorknob, so I see it when I'm going out and I always remember to take it. I had problems with my previous service since the alarm would go off on its own, but I haven't run into that with this one. Customer support also helped me work out the best payment plan for me. I pay for 6 months in advance and I get a better price with different options. I'm very happy about that.

The way they advertised it informed my choice. I tend to travel, and I wanted something that would help me not feel isolated. I wondered if it would definitely work, because I depend on it. It happened that I had the device in my purse. Something put pressure on the button, and they called me, so that convinced me: oh yes, this works. They are quick to respond and I appreciate that. The system works for me and what I need it for. I don't have to be at home. I do a lot of gardening in my back yard, and I worried about how far I should be from the device while it was inside at home. If I walk my granddaughter to school, I put the portable device in my pocket, or it could attach on my belt loop. I have the other devices with a bracelet or around my neck, so we walk to school and I'm not concerned. This is such a pressure reliever. I can walk to school and come back, and all along it's like somebody else is walking along with me. Somebody has my back in case something happens. I've already recommended it to friends.

I didn't really do a lot of shopping around. I just saw their add in the AARP magazine and decided to get it. So far I haven't had any problems, but I haven't had to use it. I've accidentally dropped the device and I've gotten a quick response from them. It is a really touchy instrument you know. I've gone to put it on my night stand and set off the alarm that way. I've got to be really careful with it. I don't feel like I'm getting my money's worth since I can't wear it at night for fear of setting it off when I roll over. When that happens they call me and I'm really glad they do that instead of calling 911 right away. I don't want to alert the fire department or the police department if there's no emergency.

I went with it since I liked the plan and the way that it worked. The device works really quickly too, it connects me to the people that can help me really quick. There was one time when my house was filling with smoke in the morning. I called them for help and they got the fire department and the paramedics out to my house. It turned that because of a draft, the wood stove was just filling my house with smoke but there was no fire. So, they helped me clear the smoke and everything. They were quick, accurate, and very nice. They're just very careful and get you the help that you need. I really enjoy having them on my side.

A friend of mine had it. I liked the wristwatch and I just thought it was a terrific idea to get it. I'm on oxygen 24/7 and I've lost a lot of weight, I mean, I was 220 and right now I'm 140. Because of that I don't really go out much. I just go to the doctor to get my blood checked once in a while and sometimes I do some shopping. Since my friend got a $25 bonus for referring someone, we just went with that. We just called the man and got it. I've never used it but I'm very happy with it and I have no problems. I use the watch type thing since I'm in the house most of the time. The other company I was with would take a long time to respond. I could be dead by the time I got on the phone with them, so I'm happy I switched to MobileHelp. I'm very pleased with it, it's just perfect.
