Life Alert Emergency Response, Inc. is a nationwide American company, with headquarters in Encino, California, which provides services that help elderly contact emergency services. The company was founded in 1987 by Isaac Shepher, Zohar Loshitzer, and Arik Amir.

In April 2022, Isaac Shepher — best known for the California-based Life Alert emergency-response company he and his longtime wife Miri founded in the late 1980s, which is famous for that catchy slogan: “Help! I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!” — bought a mansion in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. Records show the Israeli couple paid just under $15.8 million for the property, which is located in the guard-gated enclave of Hidden Hills.
