The best solution I had do at the time was what I had already been using for years. Every night before bed, I texted my mom to tell her when I expected to be up or get going for the day, such as when my first meeting was. Every morning, my mom (who was in a time zone two hours ahead of me), would text me around the time I was planning to get up. The plan was that if I didn’t respond after a while, she would call me. There were numerous reasons I might not have responded right away, such as if I had gone in to work early or got wrapped up in a spontaneous meeting. Or, in the worst case, that I hadn’t woken up to my phone alarm because my blood sugar was too low. Ideally, I would answer the phone or text her back and let her know I was awake, ok, and fine. But the plan was that if she couldn’t reach me by phone, she would then call the apartment manager of my building and have them come check on me. If they couldn’t get me to come to the door, they’d call 911.
