On Monday, October 27th, 80-year-old Patricia H. of Kennesaw, Georgia, took a spill at home and could not get herself up. Luckily, on September 5th, she had purchased the Home Guardian system online through our website. She was able to connect to the MG Monitoring Center, who called the local EMTs for a lift assist. Once on the line with Emergency Services, the MG Operator was able to provide them with her lockbox information and the location of her medical information should they need it once inside the house.
After hanging up with Emergency Services, the MG Operator made 4 attempts to contact Patricia's daughter without success. The next call they made was to her backup contact and friend, who agreed to go check on her within the next 15 minutes.
Patricia's story is a reminder that you can't necessarily depend on friends or loved ones to be there for you in an emergency. The monitoring services that Medical Guardian provides to all of its customers are 24/7, working night and day to keep them safe and protected.
