Medical Guardian has kept people safe since they opened their doors in 2005. They offer medical alert services for those who may need emergency services while at home or on the go. They have CSAA certified monitoring centers that are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and work to keep your loved ones safe.

The Good

  • Price
  • Contract
  • Warranty
  • Monitoring
  • Customer service
  • Special offers
  • Risk assessment
  • CSAA Five Diamond certified

Medical Guardian members get equipment free of charge, with no setup fees or long-term contracts. The systems are backed by a Lifetime Warranty and include access to their 24/7 monitoring centers in the event of an emergency. The Medical Guardian monitoring centers provide bilingual support available for those who cannot speak English. Medical Guardian also includes medical alert services to Canada.

  • Price: Depending on the package, Medical Guardian charges anywhere from $29.95-$49.95 for round the clock monitoring and emergency dispatch services. In addition to low monthly monitoring fees, there is no activation fee associated with setting up the account.
  • Contract: If at any point you would like to cancel your Medical Guardian services, members can do so at any point without charge.
  • Warranty: Medical Guardian offers a lifetime warranty. If for some reason the equipment is damaged, Medical Guardian will replace it.
  • Monitoring: Medical Guardian monitors 24/7 and even has equipment that detects an emergency and requires no action from the individual in order to receive help.
  • Customer Service: Medical Guardian has customer service representatives waiting to assist you whether you have questions about ordering equipment or if you are experiencing difficulty operating the system. Members have the ability to order online or by calling in, and there is an online support team prepared to answer any and all questions.
  • Special Offers: If you sign up now, Medical Guardian is offering free activation, free equipment and free shipping at checkout.
  • Risk Assessment: Interactive feature that helps customers better identify their risk of experiencing a fall or medical emergency
  • CSAA Five Diamond Certified: This means that Medical Guardian has 100% of their central station operators certified and are committed to CSAA’s five points of excellence.

The Bad

  • Initial service agreement
  • No combo package

While Medical Guardian does offer some of the best equipment and services in the industry, there are still some aspects of their service that require additional attention prior to purchasing.

  • Initial Service Agreement: While there is no contract with Medical Guardian, there is a minimum three-month (90-day) service agreement. Medical Guardian asks that consumers try their service for at least three months before canceling. If a consumer decides they do not want to wait three months to cancel, consumers may do so. However, Medical Guardian will keep the 90-day minimum charge and consumers will then receive money back for any remaining portion of the service charges they did not use. This is not ideal for those who want to test Medical Guardian for one month, but cancellation is still possible.
  • No Combo Package: Medical Guardian does not offer a combo package at this time. This means that consumers will not be able to group multiple items together to receive a discounted rate.

The Bottom Line

Medical Guardian has proved to be an industry leader with their emergency support, quality products, and affordable service. Their In-Home, GPS and Automatic Fall-Detection features can be added on an individual basis to help keep your loved ones safe. They offer some of the best technology on the market at an affordable rate. Their recent CSAA Five Diamond certification also shows their standing and commitment to excellent customer service.

We would highly recommend them as the best company in the industry for a medical alert system.

    This company is awesome! Go it for my mom and if she even trips it alerts and asks her if she’s ok. That’s how sensitive it is. As soon as she fell a voices says France’s are you all right? My mom got into a car accident Upstae NY when she was visiting my sister. Today, I got a call from them stating she was not responding and called 911. Turns out my sister and mom were in a car accident and they called me before my sister even had a chance. They are amazing!

    My experience with the representatives was pretty good. My wife gets seizures, and the first time she used it, the paramedics were there. They were pretty quick the second time as well. It’s a good and quick service.

    I spoke to probably 3 different people, and all 3 of them were very informative, very courteous and answered all my questions without pressure. It was very easy to set up. I recently asked somebody to come and help me do it, but when I saw the instructions, I was able to figure it out myself. The lady I spoke with had me do a test, and about 5 seconds later, somebody came online. Overall, everything with Medical Guardian is excellent.

    They were very nice and told me everything about Medical Guardian. I was excited about everything that was in the package. Now, I’m just glad that when I go out by myself, I can carry the little monitor and I know I’m safe.

    Most of the time I’m alone, and at my age, I was concerned about my safety, so I decided to get this service. It’s been great so far. I’m very satisfied with the equipment itself as well. However, what I do want to point out is the sales person and his co-workers. They do an excellent job when your calling, and they answer all your questions professionally. Not only that, they also do a follow up! My experience with them as been fantastic!

    I can’t visit my mother all the time, so I purchased Medical Guardian in case something happened to her. The service itself was very good! We actually used it twice and it works out great. It was also very easy to set up. It’s just been fantastic.

    My satisfaction with Medical Guardian is 50/50. We tried to use it 6 weeks after mailing in all the paperwork they required, and they had never entered the phone numbers of our contacts. They ended up calling an ambulance instead. They system itself was okay.
