Home Medical Alert systems (way OT)
I know this is way, way off topic, but I'm looking for advice and hoping someone around here might know something.
My mother lives alone and has reached the age where we (and she) feels like she needs some kind of medical alarm type device... a device she can wear around her neck that has an alarm she can press to request help if she falls, passes out, or otherwise cannot reach a phone to request emergency help. There seem to be a number of companies out there, with a range of prices for services. Does anyone have advice regarding companies worth considering or avoiding, or alternatives to this type of device, etc.?
Thanks so much, and again, apologies for the off-topic post.
