Alexa skills to help with therapy needs
Ask My Buddy is a free Alexa skill that lets you immediately alert someone in your Personal Alert Network that you need them to check on you. All you need to do is say, ‘Alexa, Ask My Buddy to alert Your Contact’ or ‘Alexa, Ask My Buddy to alert everyone’, and Ask My Buddy will immediately send an alert, notifying them to check on you right away. Alerts will be sent by text message / SMS, an email, and even a voice telephone call. Ask My Buddy is not a substitute for 911, but rather an additional tool offering the security of knowing help is just a shout away. This is perfect for older folks who live alone or young teens that are just starting to stay at home on their own.
