I have the same request as Susan - need a panic button that can be worn on the wrist or neck that is also waterproof, which will directly alert someone else in the household. Would be grateful for any leads. Thanks.

I am worried about dying in my sleep and not being found for several days or more. It happened recently that all my family and my daily help were all away for 2 wks and I had no back-up. What I need is a daily check-up.

Thanks for your support & concern, but we need something for Mom to have with her that is super easy to use & will only alert me or my Dad. (anybody got a 'Lassie Dog' out there?)

I need some real help for my Mom to be able to alert me if she falls when my Dad isn't here.... What are my options?

A couple of yrs ago, I ordered a system and service for my mom. It had the necklace,which is waterproof so she could wear it in the shower. At first she didn't always wear it, then one time she fell in the middle of the night, hit her head, finally dragged herself to the phone,called 911 because she couldn't remember my #. After that episode, she never took the necklace off.
My mom has the monitor/necklace, the contract is in my name and after mom legally disowned me recently, I can't get her to return the unit. I'm probably the only person on this site who has gone through this mess but I'd like to alert others to be careful about getting stuff for your parent if the parent does not have mental problems. I think if I tell her until she gets the service in her name, I'm still the emergency contact, it might push her to make a move.
Live and learn, I always say.

When my mother-in-law lived alone, we set her up with a medical alert necklace. It worked great too, when she fell and broke her hip. She actually remembered to push the button, and they called me first as preplanned. She has one of those necklace's not at her asst living place too.
