@A myRAteam Member, no, it's just a bracelet so paramedics and ER professionals know about me. :)

Isn't there an IPhone app for that? I think there is something called "track me"??? My 87 year old Auntie used to want to do everything by herself and ahe would fall so We got her the "I've fallen and i Can't get Up" button. They will call to you from a little box/speaker & if you don't answer they send over the police." there are watch type buttons and necklaces which you can even wear in the shower.

My mother has one. She lives alone and she is 78. My brother and his wife live with her when they are home, but she is there alone much more than I care to admit. I call her several times a day just to check on her. I go see her when I am not working. I drive her to appointments. The button hangs around her neck. She can push it if she needs help. It is attached to her burglar alarm. It only works when she is home. I understand some can be attached to your phone but they only work in certain metro areas here.

I have seen them advertised on yv. You might contact one of your local stations and let them know what info you want and they could maybe refer you to who ER advertises on their network.
