Most of us can remember the ‘good old days’, when it was almost impossible to find a pay-phone when you needed one. Having your car break down on a deserted road was a major concern for most of us. Can you remember doing your recommended exercises, like walking, worrying the whole time about what you would do should there be an emergency, like a heart attack. How would you contact someone for help? Most of us had hoped that someday someone would figure out a way to make us safe and secure with a portable telephone.
Today’s mobile telephones are the answer. This is why many seniors have one. One of the greatest benefits to owning a cell phone is the security of knowing that they can call for assistance anytime or anywhere you need to. In past decades, millions of people were stranded on side of the road in the middle of nowhere because their car broke down. Not being able to get help and having to rely on the kindness of strangers who passed by. It was not only frustrating, it was also very dangerous.
