If you’re concerned about a family member who lives alone, or elderly parents that need additional care and assistance, you should be interested in the Ask My Buddy skill for Alexa.
Once enabled and linked and configured through the accompanying service, the Ask My Buddy skill can be setup to alert a single person or everyone in a maintained contact list when help is required. The list is maintained through the Ask My Buddy Personal Alert Network and stores names and contact information including First name, Last name, Cell number, Home (Voice) number, and/or Email address.
One extra interesting aspect of this skill – it works with all Amazon Alexa devices including the Amazon Dash Wand. So, your loved one can simply carry Alexa around with them for whenever emergency help is needed. They just say…
‘Alexa, Ask My Buddy to Send Help’
Where to get it: You can locate the Ask My Buddy Skill in the Amazon Alexa app, enable it using your voice, or use the following web link: Ask My Buddy
