If you’re an older person living alone, you probably have a pretty steady routine without a ton of risky activity.
But that might not stop your kids and loved ones from worrying about you. That’s where Alexa Together could be a good middle ground to meet.
One of the benefits for you is Urgent Response through Alexa.
Just say the magic words, “Alexa, call for help,” and the service will connect you with either one of your emergency contacts or Amazon’s help service who can call for police, fire, or medical services.
And if you opt for one of the compatible fall-detection devices, your Echo can automatically detect if you fall and can’t get up.
Beyond emergency help, you can set your own daily routines with Alexa—including reminders, appointments, and shopping lists. Your family can also send things like music to you through your Echo, and if you opt-in to the new "remote assist" feature, they can set up Alexa routines for you too.
