Amazon com : ‘Without Alexa, things would have been so much worse'

11/17/2021 | 01:07pm EDT
Why this Alexa Smart Properties resident at a senior living community in Chicago credits Alexa with connecting her with help when she needed it.

Read more from Janet, in her own words:

I've always appreciated how handy Alexa is. I was part of the team who helped introduce Alexa into my retirement community years ago, becoming one of the first communities in the country to do so. Before my accident, I used Alexa on a regular basis for setting timers as well as remindersto take medication, and turning on the lights. However, this year I experienced an incident that made me value Alexa even more.

I'm in my early 80s and live independently in my apartment at The Admiral at the Lake, which offers many amenities to help me live the life I want as I age, while also easily getting the support I need when I need it. One afternoon, I was sitting at my desk, and I pushed away in my rolling chair to grab something at my printer. Unfortunately, I started slipping out of my chair. I tried to save myself, but I landed hard on my left knee. I heard a cracking sound, and I knew it was bad.

When I was lying there on the floor, I wasn't wearing my safety pendant, my phone wasn't in reach, and even though I screamed for my neighbors, nobody could hear me. I was panicking, trying to figure out how I'd get the help I needed. Then I remembered that my room has an Echo installed, so I called out and asked Alexa to call the front desk. I was immediately connected with the wonderful team at the front desk, and they called 911 for me.

Thankfully, the paramedics arrived soon after. I completely shattered my femur.I've had a broken hip before, so I know how serious these breaks can be, and I know that without Alexa, things would have been so much worse. This accident happened mid-afternoon, and although our support staff checks on residents daily, if we don't set off a motion sensor in our apartments, they may not have been alerted that I was in trouble until the next morning. Alexa saved me from experiencing an even worse injury, and now I really know just how valuable Alexa can be.
