There are so many companies and so many options.  Land line or GPS?  Fall detection? Necklace or wrist band?  Who is called: a trained operator? your neighbor? an ambulance?  What can an Apple watch do?  Or is my cell phone enough? What do these things cost?  And how fast can they get help to me in a real emergency?

We have found someone who knows these systems but doesn’t work for any of them. Dr. Richard Caro of Tech-enhanced Life will zoom in from CA, give us an overview, and answer our questions. A link will be sent to you the morning of the program.

If you would like to familiarize yourself with some of the options before the program  check out their site here.
