About a year ago my mother in law was out for a walk with her dogs when she fell and hurt herself really bad. She's 66 years old and sort of resistant to technology, but after she fell she had a change of heart. She had to go the hospital and had to get several MRI's and while we are thankful her injuries were not life threatening, we really wished she had a cell phone so she didn't have to walk back to her house to call 911. If she had broken her leg instead of just scraping it up, who knows how she would have gotten back home or who would have found her. I know that a lot of older people are resistant to cell phones and technology but we talked to her about a prepaid cell phone for emergencies and she agreed it was a great idea. In addition when she takes my son to the park, I have a way to reach her if I need to now.
