I'm 88, a widow and alone in the country. My children wanted me to have something so they'd know where I am and what I'm doing, that's why we purchased GreatCall. The great thing about the device is it works anywhere, unlike my previous alert device which had a base in the house that you couldn't go very far away from it. I'm satisfied with GreatCall but the biggest trouble I have is I wear the device around my neck and then you either have to put it in inside your clothes or you risk hitting something on the outside. I've got it tucked in my bra and sometimes it gets too warm. I don't like it hanging around my neck and would rather wear it on my arm.
