Having experience as the caregiver of an individual who uses the health alert system which only works within a few feet of the phone, caregivers will response with raves of positive applause. Now if we go to the doctor or grocery without taking the alert off or calling in and telling them we will be out for a small amount of time; we will not return to an Emergency Unit sitting at our door.
This is a blessing even for those who felt they are well and not in need of this type of service; only to be stricken with a heart attack, a fall, instant pulmonary edema or whatever. This button will be an extension of independence for each of us.
