I tripped off of the stair chair and had trouble getting up from the wood floor. I pushed my Life Alert button and you had the fire department come. They came in, and they helped me up. I did not get hurt.
Life Alert staff stayed on with me and my sister until the ambulance arrived and told them what I was allergic to, they were very informative. Thank you very much, you have saved, if not my life, my piece of mind.
I am so happy and relieved that a few years ago I joined Life Alert. I have used it three or four times and have been so happy I had it. My mother and I live alone and it has meant so much to us to get such quick help. Thanks again.
My wife was home alone for a brief period when she fell and was unable to get up without help. After pushing the Life Alert button, the sheriff was there within minutes with the EMT’s, and her family there shortly. She was well taken care of. We greatly appreciated Life Alert.
Had a duodenal ulcer attack. Thought it was heart attack when I called Life Alert. Response was wonderful. Got immediate help and made to feel comfortable and calm.
I fell out of bed and could not get up. I pressed the button for help. Life Alert took over at this time. EMT’s came to my apartment and helped me off the floor, asked me if I needed to go to the hospital. I said no. They made sure I was alright.
Life Alert was very prompt when I fell. Ambulance arrived quietly, as requested. I am very pleased with Life Alert. Thank you.
On August 23, I was attempting to put my trailer on my truck. I lost control of the trailer and it knocked me down. I landed in a sitting position on a hard surface. The impact caused me to be partially paralyzed. I used Life Alert to summon help. The response was excellent.

I fell during an electrical outage but was able to use my Life Alert. EMS came right away and assisted. We love Life Alert!! Also they were invaluable during my husband’s lengthy illness.
When one is alone and feeling sick and faint having the voice from Life Alert assure you someone is on the way it is comforting. Life Alert notified family and the ambulance, and I was taken to the hospital immediately.
I was at my friend’s house when I had my emergency. Life Alert GPS responder got me help from your staff. They were very helpful and stayed with me till help arrived. I can’t say enough about your services. Thank you.
Slid out of bed while trying to get up. Water proof pad made me slide. Fell on knees. Could not get up without help. Had to call Life Alert for fire department to help me get up. Lady stayed on line and was very courteous.
My heart stopped beating, I passed out and fell on my tile floor. Broke nose and 2 bones in my neck. After pushing the Life Alert button emergency people came right away and took me to the hospital.
I fell in my bedroom and pressed my Life Alert necklace button. The person was very helpful and fast in dispatching EMT’s to my house. They helped me up and checked me out and determined I was fine. Thank you!
I was walking our little dog, have been living here 6 months and never knew there was a drop off, and went down the bank about 6 feet, my legs are very weak once down, could not get up. So when I went down, I could not stand up. My wife called Life Alert, and 2 men came and helped me to my feet.
Life Alert stayed on the line until EMTs came to take me to the ER. I’m home now and relieved to have Life Alert. It brings me peace of mind!
I’m very impressed. The service I received was exactly what I saw advertised on television. Thank you.
I awoke quite ill – had been for days but thought I’d get better. This morning I faced the fact that I’d better call for an ambulance. I called my Life Alert and the girl called an ambulance, which took me to the hospital. She was polite and speedy, which I appreciated!!
My mom’s blood pressure was very high and she was having vision issues. Life Alert felt very strongly that EMT’s needed to be sent. My mom spent two days in the hospital before things were (and still are) fairly normal for a 92 year old. Thank you.
My mom fell in the bathroom and Life Alert called the fire department and paramedics. They got her up and moving. Thank you so much!
I slipped getting out of the tub. The dispatcher was calming, called 911 immediately, and stayed with me until help came.
I was outside on a freezing, snowy night to de-leach a dog – door locked behind me – no coat or boots, I pressed my Life Alert. They got a hold of the fire department who responded, opened the key lock box, and let me in. I could not see the numbers on lock box because it was too dark.
I was losing a lot of blood and Life Alert saved my life getting me to the hospital very fast. Thank you for being there.
My mother had gotten dehydrated and was so dizzy she could not sit up. I called Life Alert and help was on the way.
I had been having severe pain in my back and also my chest. I couldn’t lay in bed or sit back in my lazy boy. When I rang Life Alert, they answered immediately and stayed on the line until the ambulance came.
I felt dizzy and pressed the button. Life Alert responded immediately and called my daughter. Rescue was notified and responded quickly, and took me to the hospital.
I fell and couldn’t get up. I received help from local emergency personnel. I was surprised when my son came in and I found out my other son and daughter were called to let them know of my welfare. Thank you, Life Alert, so much for the help I received.
My father signed up for the life alert system earlier in the year. The sales people were very pushy and used high pressure sales tactics. They told us that the system had a three year money back guarantee if the person using the system died or went into a nursing home within 3 years. 3 months later my father could no longer live by himself and had to go to a nursing home. They asked for proof which we provided and then they said the guarantee only applied if the customer died. This is a company that only cares about getting your money and wont honor anything it promises. There are other companies out there that will do more for you and cost much less without a 3 year commitment or dishonest salespeople!
We understand the challenges that families face when having to uproot their elderly loved and move them into a nursing home. It can be a confusing time.
Life Alert is the only medical alert company that has a money back guarantee that if a person dies at home alone – Life Alert will refund all the monies back. This is noted in the Monitoring Fee Refund paragraph of our Service Agreement. We do not refund money if the person goes into a nursing home, however, we will cancel the agreement with no penalty fees when the paperwork is provided.
Please know that it would not have been financially or professionally adventitious for the representative to have misled the customer. There simply would not have been any benefit to the rep, but instead serious financial retributions.
Unlike other companies, Life Alert puts its promises in writing so our customers know that their price is guaranteed, there are no hidden fees, and they are protected by the industry leader in personal protection.
We are sorry for the confusion you may have felt and hope this response has been helpful.Very Sincerely,
Life Alert gives me a feeling of security. I have fallen about 4 or 5 times and your employee calms me down by saying, “Help is on the way.” Really appreciate you.
I fell in the shower and was unable to get up. Thank goodness I have a Life Alert button right in my shower. Help arrived quickly. Thank you.
Tripped in the living room turning on the carpet. My vitals were checked. I was helped to my feet with no consequences.
We were sitting and talking when the Life Alert alarm from you folks told us to get out of the house. Our house was loaded with gas, help arrived, and we opened doors for the gas to leave the house. We and family thank you folks for advising us of this problem. It could have been a major tragedy. Thanks again. I don’t think that this system can be beat.
My mom fell and the ambulance had to be called. She just pushed her Life Alert button and they called me and the EMT’s. Service was prompt and we appreciate it very much.
