Our Satisfied Customers
I have been very pleased with the quick response to the times I have needed help. I appreciate the fact that my children are notified when I have had your service. It relieves my children knowing I wear and use my wrist band. I certainly recommend this service for anyone and their peace of mind."
I was very impressed with my first experience at using the Medical Alert system. They dispatched EMS immediately and they helped me to get off the floor when they got here. Thankful I had my Medical Alert wristband on when I fell."
I was away on vacation and became very ill. I pushed the button and Medical Alert took care of getting first responders, an ambulance and notifying my family. I was very happy with the help I received!"
Service is excellent. I had the misfortune to have to call for help. You got to the EMT's immediately who then followed up and took me to the ER. Your agents are kind especially when I have false alarms."

Will the Home System work in my area?

Is the help button waterproof?
Yes! Unfortunately, many falls happen in or around the shower or tub; with this top of mind, we made sure that our help buttons can be worn in the tub or shower. For an added layer of protection, we offer a fall detection help button which is also waterproof.
