Decades before Life Alert, elderly people used a simple system - they called and said Hello each day. No call from Sam or Sue - something likely wrong.

That's pretty much what I have in place now. My across the hall neighbor checks in with me at least once a day. When I had to update my list of emergency contacts/medical proxies/POA, etc. I called her my "Body Finder."
