I guess you can say, yeah, I am sort of stupid about these pendants! Nevertheless, my mom has a Philips Life Alert, and it will automatically detect if she falls. But does it also detect if she is motionless for a long time, as in when she dies? I have a fear of going over to her house and finding her "dead in her bed" or in her TV chair.....not after a fall, but just sleeping and slipping away. If the pendant can detect death then I can know to bring someone else with me. I apologize for this wierd question but I am a little freaked out by the prospect of finding her dead, and being the only person to deal with it, all alone. What have other people experienced, with the pendants,.and if you found your mom deceased, how did you manage to keep yourself together? Maybe if I rehearse it in my head, I can be better prepared. Thanks for any Help!
