I feel more secure now than I did before I got my Philips Lifeline device. It's a lifesaver to protect myself. The reps at Philips tell me to call every so often to check the device. They're always courteous and nice. When I call to check, sometimes it takes them a while before they answer the phone. But when they do, it's always nice. They’re good. I did use the device in an emergency but the help got here before the emergency people did.

I'm very satisfied with my Philips Lifeline. When I run it, they always are right there. The people were always polite. More than five years ago, my husband was having a heart attack and I pressed it. They came and they helped me out because I couldn't do anything for him. I use a wheelchair. That was closer to me than where the phone was too. So, that really helped me out a lot to save his life. They stayed on the line until somebody came too. Because they knew I was upset, they stayed with me the whole time.
I have told many people about the device. It's a great device. It's good for anybody to have, especially if they're alone. It's great because it even works outside. I take my dogs out and if I press it, it goes off and it works even if I'm outside. If you're alone and need help, you can always get it. You can press that button. If you just need for them to call someone so you can get help for whatever is wrong, they're right there for you.
Dolores, We appreciate you taking the time and sharing your valuable feedback with us. This must have been a frightening experience and we are happy to know we provided your husband the help he needed. Please be well, safe and take care.
My Philips device seems to be working fine. Once in a while, somebody will call and want me to check it. They want me to push the button and see how long before they called to check on me. It usually takes them about 30 seconds. As far as the device, I don't know if anything can be improved about it unless it would be a farther distance. I got a chicken house that's 125 feet from the house. I have to go out there daily to feed and water my chickens. The machine won't work that far away from the house. Other than that, it fits wonderful. I wear it on my neck.

We've been using Philips Lifeline for a long time and I'd recommend them. As far as customer service, you can’t beat it.

Having my device makes me feel better knowing I can get help if needed. I don’t know it's there. I've also got along wonderfully with the agents. One time I tripped over a chair and fell out on a concrete porch. I cut my head and I was taking medicine and bleeding like the dickens. I went to my neighbors and they helped me. I punched my button and she called everybody.

Philips Lifeline is good. We got it because of my mother's health.
Justine, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, we will always be here for your Mother. Please be well, safe, and take care.
The representatives from Philips are very pleasant. I really don't like the necklace thing around my neck, but it's all right. It doesn't hurt. I wear it anyway. My son thinks it's very nice that I wear it. I had to use it one time. I couldn't reach my son. I wanted to get in touch with him, and that was the only way I could think of to do it. I mashed the thing in, and they came on and somebody in the company called him. I never needed my device very much, but it was very reassuring when I did have it.

I’ve been very happy with Philips Lifeline. I had one problem when I had to call and the service was great.
Both my husband and I got Philips Lifeline devices. I haven’t fallen in here recently, but over the years, I have fallen about three times because I have fractured both ankles, and so I try to keep my device kinda close in case that something goes wrong like that. My husband doesn't wear his necklace though. I told him to put it on but it's hard to get him to. But it's not heavy. It’s very light. At times, the device comes on and it says to put it at another place in the house. After so long a time, it’s the same thing. It says something about the power. It’s not enough power or something and I didn't know what to do because I've tried it all over the house like this. Other than that, I feel like it's a good help.
Josephine, We appreciate you taking the time and sharing your valuable feedback with us. If you ever have any questions about the equipment please call us at 1-800-635-6156 and we are always happy to assist. Please be well, safe and take care.
The reps call once a month and check the medical alert device. All I have to do is push the button and then, the phone rings and the rep would say that it is to check my alarm system. I would go into my bedroom where the device is and push the button. The rep would say that everything is fine and it’s working normal. It's a fine machine. It's nice to know that it is working in case I ever do need it.
Eugene, This is very nice to hear this type of review and we are happy that we can be there for you. Please be well, safe, and take care.
