  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Guardian Alert 911

Question

Last week I received a Guardian Alert from the Birmingham, AL VA and I'm wondering if anyone else has received one. I have not received a letter or any information from my doctor regarding the Guardian Alert.

Is this one of those "buttons" around your neck you push if you fall?

It must be broncovet,

I never knew they had these?  good for veterans prone for falls.  I helped a veteran last week at the VAMC  He suddenly took a fall right in front of me   he was ok   although I was in a wheel chair because of  Plantar Fasciitis On my left Heel,  I stood up and helped him up  I just can't walk on my left heel.....yet

I don't have the guardian alert but I do have an Apple Watch and I am happy to report the fall detection works, I took a pretty hard fall the other day and the Apple Watch immediately knew from there you can tell it your ok or you can have it call you contact or 911 and if you don't respond in a certain amount of time it will send an ambulance to you. That was the coolest thing about my fall. I got my Apple Watch as a gift and it's been great.

Ms. Tbird, I wouldn't be punishing your body in order to find out if your new widget works or not. Not cool!
