Mrs. Paula W. is a 4″ 9′ army veteran who served during the Vietnam war. She is part of our BlueStar Veteran Foundation program and lives at the border with Canada.
Paula has trouble with cell coverage in her home, and after suffering in the past from strokes, she was feeling very uneasy from this. She got lucky the first couple of times, but she does not want her luck to run out and needed some more reliable protection.
Now, she is very happy that she can feel protected in her home thanks to her medical alert unit. Paula said she could not afford a medical alert on her own, and she is very thankful that we are providing a free one for her. She now has the peace of mind that if something does go wrong, we have her covered.
