I know I don't post often, but I lurk daily. So I thought I would ask here if any of you have any thoughts. My mom has been battling Cancer on a off for the past 3 years. With all of the treatments, and long term side effects of the treatments, she has become more weak and frail. It sucks watching your parents age so quickly before your eyes. In the last year, she has fallen at night twice and spent a few hours on the floor before either my dad came to help her or she was able to get herself up. Also, my dad travels a lot so she is home alone often as well. So I am looking into some type of a medical alert system that she can wear that can first alert us with a phone call and if necessary call paramedics etc. I am curious if anyone has had to set one of these up for their parents or knows anything about them? There are TONS of them out there. I think Lifeline is the one everyone knows about, but from what I have read, it is also the most expensive and the most up front fees etc. But I don't want to end up with something that won't do the job either. Anyone have any experiences, advice or suggestions on where to start with this? A google search yesterday left me completely overwhelmed!
