My mother is in her mid-90s and lives alone with her two Shih Tzu’s

My mother is in her mid-90s and lives alone with her two Shih Tzu’s. She is very independent and manages most things for herself. I go in daily to check she is ok, walk her dogs and get any shopping she may want.

Late one night in January 2021 she got up to let one of the dogs out. It was pouring with rain and after opening the door fell over and broke her hip! She was able to call me from her watch and we called an ambulance to attend. We were able to reassure her whilst driving to her house.

Without the ability to call, she would certainly not have survived lying on the conservatory floor for probably about 8 hours with the door open and rain coming in.

On another occasion she had an intruder break into her house in the early hours. They fled when the security lights came on and the dogs barked, but again she was able to call for help and reassurance.

This year she suffered a mild heart attack and again we were able to call the ambulance without delay.

We upgraded to the Fall Detect watch and although this occasionally gives a false alarm it has been invaluable. We have installed cameras in her bungalow and are able to check she is ok before making a call.

I cannot praise CPR Guardian enough and would recommend the watch to anyone with an elderly or vulnerable relation. It offers complete piece of mind to the wearer and the family.
