Then another one is traveling or a couple of times a year, so called as an occasional traveler.

There are personal alarm systems that contact emergency services when a button is pressed. This can be a pendant or a wrist type device. Some of these systems can be expensive and have a monthly subscription fee as well.

Mom can talk directly to the person on the other side through the device she is wearing. It’s pretty cool.
