Helen and Oscar's story

Helen has a collie called Oscar. He’s a very nosey and curious dog but she loves him all the same. A few months ago Helen fell while out on a walk with Oscar. She spent almost an hour on the ground before another dog walker discovered her.

Helen’s daughter worried about her mother lying out in the cold without anyone knowing where she was. Helen wanted the best of both worlds... to give her daughter peace of mind… without giving up walking Oscar every day.

Now, Helen has got a YourStride alarm watch to be able to keep walking Oscar. It allows her to call for help anywhere she goes, giving her a safety net while out on walks. This keeps her more active, she says it’s given her 20 years of confidence back.
