Hi, I have an elderly mom (94!) who is relatively healthy, has no dementia, but does have macular degeneration. She lives alone and I implored her to get Life Alert, but she refuses. She had friends who called LifeAlert by mistake and hates the idea of having "an army of firemen" come to her door by mistake. I would like to have a "Skill" developed where mom says, "Alexa, please call Harry" (or any other pre-programmed names linked to their respective numbers) . I could receive the call and help her. Having said that, another nice capability would be to have Alexa understand other languages, even if it's simple commands. Building up a vocabulary would be nice if it had a wiki-type platform where native speakers could "teach" Alexa words in Spanish, French, etc.
