95 yr old Ohio man dodges nursing home
Seniors born before 1956 rush to get new miracle device that comes with free monthly service for life and unlimited nationwide help with just the push of a button
His name is Harry, but everybody calls him Pete.
He’s a feisty guy that can jitterbug better than someone more than half his age. He’s the life of the party.
Pete is 95 years old. He served in World War II at Normandy and has a wall full of medals to prove it.
“It started with the slower steps, the reduced hearing and vision. I hated it, but I started thinking maybe it was time to give up the apartment,” said Pete.
When his son and daughterin-law suggested he move in with them he reluctantly agreed.
Everything seemed fine at first. But then Pete’s daughter-inlaw, Maryanne, began to notice the shuffling steps, the difficulty with mundane tasks, but worst of all she found out about the falls, nothing serious yet but disturbing.
Maryanne began to worry that something might happen when they weren’t around. That wasn’t a risk Maryanne was willing to take.
“I started looking into medical alert devices. But they are like $50 to $100 a month.” said Maryanne, “We just didn’t have it plus all the other costs, equipment, installation, deposits, it never ends.”
“Just when it seemed like Pete was headed for a nursing home, I saw an article about FastHelp™ in my newspaper,” continued Maryanne, “I found out it instantly connects you to unlimited help, nationwide, everywhere cell service is available.”
“I also learned there are no contracts, no deposits, and no monthly bills ever,” Maryanne explained, “it was like all my prayers were answered, Pete would be able to stay with us.”
“If Pete would have been sent to a nursing home we could have lost him forever,” said Maryanne, “FastHelp has been a Godsend for us.”
FastHelp works at home or anywhere cell service is available so whether Pete or one of the brand new 50,000 users are out watering the garden, driving in a car, at church or even hundreds of miles away on a tour or at a casino they are never alone.
“Folks absolutely love the sleek new modern design and most of all, it’s free for life,” said Joseph Rodgers, Chief of Staff for U.S. based Universal Physicians.
Millions of seniors fall every year and spend painful hours praying for help. But seniors who fall and get immediate help are much more likely to avoid getting sent to a nursing home and get to STAY living in their own home safely and independently.
Yet countless seniors are still risking their safety because they just can’t afford to pay the monthly bills that come with old style medical alert devices.
That’s why seniors who want to avoid the nursing home and its potential death sentence are rushing to get FastHelp free for life once they cover the first month as long as they call before the 2 day deadline ends. Heavy call volume is expected so if lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered.
“This little FastHelp device is my guardian angel. I’m so glad my daughter-in-law got it for me.”
