The Lifeminder is a medical GPS personal safety alarm that lives up to its name and fulfils all the promises noted on the brochure accompanying this product.
I have accommodated my disabilities since birth. However, I have faced my biggest challenges since the loss of my sight and hearing, and relocating recently to live on my own, with my Seeing Eye Dog, Yoshi.
My children and other family live interstate and in regional NSW centres. They are concerned for my welfare, as I spend many hours on my own, and also have other disabilities that threaten my safety.
However, the Lifeminder personal safety alarm, which also has a fall detection function, has given me back a sense of security and measure of independence, and thus self esteem (complimented by Yoshi).
I still need to be in charge of and care for Yoshi, so the Lifeminder performs a dual role, which is reassuring.
By pressing the central SMS button on the pendant, the *SIM card in the Lifeminder allows it to act as a secondary mobile device, enabling direct 2-way communication with family and emergency responders.
My family cannot physically reach me in an emergency, so my Lifeminder pendant is also monitored by APERS (Australian Personal Emergency Response Systems). APERS has been efficient in setting up the monitoring, and thoroughly reliable in following up any monitoring issues with the Lifeminder, they have called and checked to ensure the monitoring function is still without problems, and that I am safe, on a regular basis.
My NDIS Plan has funded my Lifeminder and the APERS modest monitoring fees.
Mr John Burgess, from Lifeminder, is invested in this product, and has also been thoroughly reliable and efficient in organising the programming and delivery of my Lifeminder. He has also been conscientious in following up on any after-sales service enquiries, and has support staff on stand-by to help.
While the Lifeminder has been largely used to-date by those with epilepsy, the frail aged and isolated workers, I can thoroughly recommend it to the community with vision, hearing, and dual sensory impairments/deaf blindness as they are also among the most vulnerable amidst us.
They will find it easy to use, and will be able to quickly *send their GPS and Google Map location to their family or APERS in an emergency by pressing the central SOS button, without the need to speak or direct others to their location.
*access to the satellite and mobile network needed

Since my husband passed away and now living on my own my family have been concerned with my wellbeing as I had a fall and of course they are frightened that I will be in danger without them knowing.
My daughter found the Life Minder which has given us all the comfort of knowing that if anything does happen my pendant will contact my family immediately.
I love it, I can now go out in my car on my own and do my shopping and meet up with my friends without the worry.
Living on the land is my life, however working long hours every day on my own has its disadvantages and can be dangerous. I am constantly around my horses and cattle, plus repairing fences using power tools and that is what my family is concerned about.
Getting around on my 4 x wheel quad bike is the only method of transport I use and I have had a couple of spills, fortunately I have not been seriously injured. I am also riding my horse in remote areas and if an accident or fall occurs I can be in trouble.
My family was concerned with my wellbeing which we spoke about quite often. My wife found the Life Minder and now insists that I wear it every day.
I must admit I do feel safer within myself knowing that if an accident such as a fall does occur that one of the family will be contacted immediately and is able to get my location via Google Map.
I strongly recommended that any person living on the land have a look into buying a Life Minder.
We hear about the many severe accidents occurring which have resulted in deaths. This little beauty will give your family and yourself piece of mind that Help is on its way.

I spend hours alone in various bush locations as an amateur photographer. and have often been concern since I had a fall. I was made aware of the Life Minder and felt that it would be perfect to alert my friends if I was in a dangerous situation When it comes to life saving devices the Life Minder is one of the best you can get. I am now able to feel safe knowing that this device will contact a friend’s mobile number and help will be on the way.
Your Life Minder has given me back my freedom. I was diagnosed with a form of Epilepsy called multi-focal dysplasia when I was 11 years old, as you can imagine it was devastating to be told this as a teenager. This condition causes me to have absence and at times Tonic Clonic seizures. I have medication morning and night but my seizures are not usually controlled.
If I was to go to a party at any age someone had to know what might happen therefore most likely ruining their time and mine. Putting me in a position that makes me seem constantly in need. Having the Life Minder allows me to go places by myself without worrying that I might get stuck in a situation that I cannot get out of by contacting a family member or a friend by the simple
press of a button.
I recommend the use of the Life Minder to anybody that suffers from Epilepsy and wants to be independent.
The Life Minder has provided our clients with peace of mind. The device is simple to use has the great benefit of not being tied to a copper telephone line.
The Life Minder has enabled our clients to go back out into the community with confidence.
The Life Minder has been in use since the end of August 2017. Peace of mind is invaluable and this pendant has assisted in providing another strategy to assist in the user maintaining an independent lifestyle. After the initial hiccup where we took the showerproof message literally and it was left on while showering (on reflection not a good idea ), showerproof of course means a small amount of water! The backup service is both friendly, professional and response time to any query is excellent.
