I am now assuming more responsibility for the care of my mother, who lives independently in her own home.
I want her to install a medical alert service, so that she can easily and automatically inform emergency services, our family's members and her friends if an accident occurs.
Several services are available, including ADT's Companion Services, Philips's Lifeline, and Lifefone. I believe they have comparable features, but different pricing structures.
Do you or a member of your family use such a service? If so, what has been your experience? Which would you recommend and why?
