I Believe MePACS Saved My Life
Judith lives on a 5 and a half acre block in the Yarra Valley. She was hanging out the washing one morning when she fell; breaking her arm and dislocating her shoulder.
If it hadn’t have been for her MePACS Mobile Alarm, Judith believes she may not be here today.
“I believe MePACS saved my life – If I didn’t have my MePACS Mobile alarm on me when I fell, it may have been days until someone had realised something was wrong,” said Judith.
MePACS Saved My Life
Ron was at home having a midday rest late last year, when all of a sudden he was so badly overcome by pain that he couldn’t move. “I was in so much pain that I could not even reach the phone at the side of my bed to call 000,” recalled Ron.
“I had suffered a major arterial blood clot cutting off blood to my heart and brain which totally incapacitated me.” Ron lives alone, so nobody knew his life was in grave danger.
“Luckily I had my MePACS personal alarm on me and was able to press the button for help.”
Don’t hesitate to press that MePACS button – At the end of the day you want to go home to your family!
Sarah works alone as a Pathology collector at Clinical Labs.
Sarah recalls when she needed the assistance of the MePACS response service, where a patient became quite agitated and it quickly became an emergency situation.
“Having pressed my MePACS alarm gave me reassurance that i could come back into work the next day. The MePACS alarm has to be the first thing you put on when you walk into work each day”. Said Sarah.
MePACS Alarm is my Life Saver
Doreen from Melbourne became a MePACS member over 6 years ago and says her MePACS personal alarm is her lifesaver. Doreen wears the pendent around her neck day and night and it has given both Doreen and her daughter peace of mind that if she fell, had an accident or became unwell help would be only the press of a button away.
Doreen loves to sing and goes to choir practise each week and meets up with her friends. So likes to keep active and independent.
And although Doreen’s daughter lives with her, she works long hours each day, so worries about her mum when she’s away. Her daughter also wants to visit family in England in July and without the peace of mind that MePACS gives her, she wouldn’t have the confidence to leave mum on her own.”
