Not too long ago a saddened gentleman wrote us about his favorite uncle who, though ill, lived independently. After much persuading he grudgingly consented to signing on with AdvantageAlert. After only three months he decided he no longer needed the protection our system offers. Against his nephews advice he cancelled his contract. Within a few weeks, alone, he fell and couldn't get up. The damage done by the 10 hours he was alone further aggravated his injuries to where he can no longer live independently. If help were available he probably would have been able to return home rather than be institutionalized his remaining days. He wrote us in hopes that someone else might take a lesson from his uncle's misfortune.
A member of another family wrote us with deep appreciation. His mother had been ill for a very long time. She was an AdvantageAlert client who had more than once made proper use of her system - and she was to do it once more. She knew her time was ending and she used the service to summon her family one last time. They were able to gather at her bedside for the last few precious hours. The letter writer took time to tell us of this final gift to and from his mother.
A son from New York City writes about his live-alone father who was a constant worry to him and his siblings. One day when they were all busy about their own lives, their father fell while reaching for a sweater he had packed away. He was alone, in a closet, and unable to get up. He merely pressed a button and AdvantageAlert went to work. Not only did he get the help he needed, but he also got his sweater.
