As I was lying on that floor and I said ‘How am I going to get up? What am I going to do?’ and here came those heroes to my rescue.
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Rescue Alert of California™, a leading provider of senior resources and medical alert systems for seniors, releases a video testimonial. The video features Dorothy, a real Rescue Alert of California™ customer, who relates to the viewer the story of a dangerous fall she experienced and how Rescue Alert of California’s™ medical alert system and emergency response team saved her life.
For Dorothy, the relationship with Rescue Alert of California™ has been a lifesaver. As a senior living alone with an often debilitating disease, she is frequently troubled by the fear of not being able to reach anyone should an emergency arise. In a new video testimonial Dorothy reveals how for the last six years, she has relied on the lifesaving medical alert system from Rescue Alert of California™ and it has paid off by saving her life.
Rescue Alert of California™ has provided seniors like Dorothy and their families with peace of mind with their medical alert devices and accessories. The system used by Dorothy is a base unit connected to the phone line, which communicates with a button worn around the neck or wrist. This button can be pushed at any time in the event of a fall or other emergency, and immediately calls emergency responders through the base unit.
In video testimonial documents Dorothy’s struggle with Polymyalgia Rheumatica, a condition according to the Mayo Clinic, that is characterized by severe muscle pain and stiffness, especially in the neck, shoulders, upper arms, hips and thighs. This condition has significantly decreased her mobility, and she claims that Rescue Alert of California’s™ medical alert systems, which she purchased 6 years ago, saved her life by providing her with quick medical assistance when it counted most.
Dorothy shared her story, recalling one evening after her routine caregiver had left for the night that she felt hungry. She got up and, using her walker, made her way slowly to the refrigerator. As careful as she was, Dorothy slipped just outside the kitchen and fell to the floor, unable to get up again. It was then that she utilized her medical alert button. From the time she pressed the button, it took only minutes for emergency services to arrive at her home.
“As I was lying on that floor and I said ‘How am I going to get up? What am I going to do?’ and here came those heroes to my rescue” Dorothy explains what went through her mind after the fall in her testimonial. “Anyone interested in Rescue Alert of California™, don’t hesitate to call them. They were very helpful. Rescue Alert of California™ saved my life.”
When Dorothy fell, she was able to press the button and she reached a team of trained emergency responders immediately, and help was dispatched. Since 2001, Rescue Alert of California™ has been helping seniors stay safe with their wide range of elderly alert systems.
Even those, like Dorothy, who receive home care for most of the day, find themselves alone in certain situations or at certain times of day. What happens if it is one of these moments when a fall occurs? Dorothy was grateful that when she fell, alone in her kitchen, Rescue Alert of California™ was there to help. She doesn’t always have her caregiver around, but with her medical alert, she was never really alone at all.
