What would happen if you didn’t have BellMe?
They would’ve died definitely because when they fall sometimes, for instance, we have some blind people around here whom they are far away from the nurse’s station so if we didn’t have a bell we wouldn’t get to them in time. So obviously we would find there is a major problem there.
How many lives has it saved?
It has saved a lot of lives. For every nursing home they should have this. It’s definitely a life saver. They rely on this bell so much that they don’t want to part with it. If they don’t have the bell: “I’m going to die”. Honestly that’s how they feel. If they don’t have this bell on their neck to them they are dead. If anything happens to them they won’t be able to ring the bell and they can’t scream nobody is going to hear them so obviously they are going to die.
