Accidents can occur, and this is even more so when we reach our advanced years. Something that seems so small like a simple slip or fall can cause long lasting and painful breaks and other types of damage. When this becomes more dangerous is when no one is around when such accidents occur. If a phone is out of reach it could be hours or days before someone even realizes you are injured and in need of assistance. Your elderly loved ones deserve better than that.
