Let's talk about independence for a minute. Being disabled in any manner is difficult for a person. We as people want to be independent and not to have to rely on someone else for everything we need. As part of a healthy, independent, disabled lifestyle whether you have an elderly parent or a disabled child, you want peace of mind to know they are ok.
This service, IAMFINE, helps your loved ones maintain the independence they crave but it also helps with peace of mind for you!
You can try this risk-free for 14 days. No credit card is needed to try it.
The way it works is they have an automated dialer call your loved one daily and if they answer then everything is fine. It can even notify you that your loved one is ok. If they don't answer then it calls back. If your loved one still doesn't answer after a certain time period and tries it will alert everyone you have listed in your family circle. So then you can check on your loved one!
Let me tell you why something like this is important.
As I am writing this, it is almost the 10th anniversary of my mom's passing. So 10 years ago almost to this moment...I found my mom..on her bedroom floor...barely breathing...unconscious.
Let me take you back further to the day before I found my mom. When something could have been done to help her. But we didn't know anything was wrong. This is when something like IAMFINE could have helped us.
I decided to give my mom a break from a daily visit from my husband since she had been living alone for the last 2 weeks. See, my dad had passed away suddenly 3 years earlier and my little sister, we just moved her into her college dorm 2 weeks prior to this.
What I didn't know was my grandpa had been trying to call my mom all day. She didn't answer him. He didn't really worry about it and figured he would call her later. If I had known, I could have gone and checked on her, figured out something was wrong, and gotten her help. But again, I didn't know.
The next day I tried calling my mom. She didn't answer but again we weren't worried because if she was sleeping she would call me back. But I got busy with my life that day and I forgot, I hadn't heard from her. That night my grandpa called me. He said, "I tried to call your mom all day today and yesterday, and she never called me back".
I got that feeling in the pit of my stomach. You know that one that is a lead ball. That one that you know it before you can see it.
I called 911 and got her to the hospital. But it was too late. Her body was shutting down and she passed away 2 days later. I kept thinking if only I had known and gotten to her sooner.
This service is so important! It can help you know that they are ok daily without them feeling like you are bugging them! They can even call in and report they are ok themselves! Don't lose your loved one to an accident when you can have them call and checked on everyday with IAMFINE.
