In 2000, Geri Salmela, an employee at West Central Telephone, had an aunt endure a nearly devastating accident at home. Her 71 year-old-aunt slipped and fell on the snow and ice outside the back door of her rural Glidden, WI home while just going out to feed the deer. With broken bones, she fell and couldn’t get up. She was fortunate that her 8-year old great-grandson spent the night and did finally wake to her cries for help. Had he not been there, she easily could have been stranded in the cold all day or longer.
After a costly hospital stay, her aunt did recover, but it’s easy to see how this could have turned out far worse. A simple medical alert system around her neck or wrist would have saved her money, and suffering.
So, when the opportunity presented itself for West Central Telephone to start a service like this, Geri knew first-hand they needed to do it. And now you or a loved one can be protected.
