My daughter messaged me on my mobile phone the other morning, asking me of I was o.k. Which is unusual, not that she doesn't care, but the fact that the message was sitting waiting for me so early was.
Evidently, during the night the security system which is operated by a pendant I wear round my neck had been trying to contact her because my pendant had been pushed three times, and they were trying to contact someone to help me. My daughter does not have her mobile on overnight, so did not receive the messages when they were sent. She lives an hours drive away. She was told that the security system (or whatever) had tried to phone me (after failing to contact her) - a waste of time I cannot hear the phone and was unaware of any activity during the night - and had evidently phoned for an ambulance, which presumably did not arrive. Now I do walk about at night, normally fully awake, and cannot think that I would have pushed a button three separate times, without knowing, but perhaps I did, but I am rather wondering why I am paying a monthly cost for something which is not really efficient, it is no good me ringing them I will not be able to hear. I have my mobile by the side of the bed, and can ring my daughter on a special line if I am desperate.! Thinking of getting some other device, since I am sure there will come a time when I need help, I do not feel very comfortable with the people I have at the moment.
