Anotonia Makris Fort Wayne, IN

I needed something really quickly so after I saw an ad for them I called them and got it for my mom. It has worked out really well. She has had it for a couple of years now but hasn't had to use it. Whenever we test it they come on the phone right away though. She also set it off once by accident and it worked the way it was supposed to. They tried to call me and when they couldn't reach me they called the second person on the emergency list who ended up calling me. It's a great service. If something were to happen, if she slipped, or fell, or something, she would be able to press the button and things would work. It gives us great peace of mind.

At the time I was working full time while my husband was at home with medical issues. We needed to utilize something like this in case he needed help at home. One of the big selling features for us was that Medical Guardian had the lock box that we could put on the front door. We called a couple of times to do a monthly check on the equipment and we also had some accidental alarms. Regardless, they did exactly what they were supposed to do. They called us back, were always very helpful and worked through any issues with us. When we no longer needed to use the equipment, we just sent it back. We were issued a payment for the time we did not utilize it and everything went well. They were very helpful.

My mother is the one that uses it. She wears the necklace 24/7 and it's not very obtrusive. It fits very nicely under her clothing. I think it's very comfortable, I mean, otherwise she wouldn't wear it. I like the fact that she can talk to someone at the push of a button if there is any issues. If the situation is not too bad, she can ask them to call a family member rather than an ambulance. One time she fell in the bath tub and just needed someone to help her back up. She pushed the button and asked the person that responded to call her sister who lives next door. She was able to come over and help her and things turned out just fine. They've always answered whenever we need them. Everybody has been very courteous and helpful, from the initial representative who set our account up to the people that answer during our testing. If I ever have any questions, they're very open to answering them. It's worth the sense of security that we get knowing that somebody will be there the minute my mother needs help.

I signed up a while ago. I did some research on the different services available and Medical Guardian just seemed to be the best one. Generally they respond immediately. You don't get put on hold or anything, the calls just go straight through to them. Within a couple of rings there's always somebody that's concerned and ready to help you as soon as possible. A couple of nights ago they probably saved my life. It was 2am in the morning when I fell. I had very severe low blood sugar, but I was able to reach my neck and push the call button. They sent out the ambulances, they got to me, and then took me to the hospital. It does what it's supposed to do.

I got it as a gift from my husband. He bought it for me after I had a heart attack. I think it's a little expensive myself. I use it mostly at night. The wristband makes you sweat really badly. It's made out of a rubbery material so you sweat a lot under it. I haven't had to use it for an emergency and hopefully I never will. The only thing I've ever done with it was test it. Every time I do that, they answer. They don't answer real quick though. It always says 'processing call, processing call' before they respond. If I had a heart attack or fell on the floor, that wait time might be a problem. It still seems to be a good unit, we're happy with it.

I looked at several options that came up on television, but I wasn't sure about any of them. I decided to check first and was very satisfied with all the answers that I got from Medical Guardian, so I signed up. The only times I've had to use it in the 5 months since I got it have been to test it. I check it on the first of every month to make sure that it's working. I've been satisfied with their response every time. Whenever I've talked with them I've been satisfied with the answers that they give me. They've solved any problems that come up and assure me that everything will be taken care of.

We got it for my mother and have been pretty happy with the whole plan. This is the easiest system to use out there. She hasn't had to use it that often. There was one time when she fell and they tried to contact me but I never received a call. It wasn't Medical Guardian's fault, that had more to do with my phone carrier. Eventually they were able to get a hold of my husband and it turned out to be a minor incident. They have been very helpful and accommodating so far, not to mention that it has been fun to work with them. The service gives me peace of mind. I know that my mom has a way to contact emergency personnel if she ever needs them.

I saw it on TV and decided to give them a call. The person that I spoke to went over everything about the device. It all just sounded like a beneficial thing for my mom, so I signed up. The person that walked me through that was very helpful and gave me all the information that I needed, including billing information. I don't quite remember the range of the thing, but I think she might need something that works while she's away from the base unit in the living room. That way she would be safe in case she falls out in the park or something. The device is very easy to use. She keeps it on her and I'm glad about that. When she has accidentally pushed it things have worked well. It's a useful thing.

Kathaleen A Whitaker New Castle, DE

I needed a service like this because I had a bad fall last year. I lived alone and I had to scream loud enough for my neighbor to hear me and come and help me. Both him and my son came running in and called 911. I had to be sent to the hospital because I had damage in my back. It was so bad that my children told me I needed to have something like this. When I saw them in a magazine, I decided to call them. The person that I talked to was able to answer all of my questions and made me feel comfortable. The price was more than fair, especially considering that it was all insured in case I broke or lost the thing. In the end, I signed up. I'm very pleased with it. I have it in my pocket whenever there's no one else in my house and also take it with me when I'm out and about. It's convenient. Whenever I call, they get back to me within seconds, even if I set it off by accident. One day when I was at my doctor's office I forgot that I had it in my pocket. When I went back home and started cooking dinner I set it off by accident and they called me. They knew exactly where I was and made sure that I was alright. They always answer my questions and make me feel comfortable. When I lost the item I called them and in a couple of days they sent out a new one for me. The price is worth it.

I purchased this for my mother after researching online. It just felt like they were well suited for our needs. The particular reason why I wanted her to have their device was that it had GPS. She drives and leaves her home often, so this worked for her because it didn't limit her to the house. Everyday, she puts in on when she gets up in the morning and wears it all day long. It's with her when she goes out, even when she goes to the gym. Actually, she accidentally bumped it when she was there once and someone called her immediately to know if she was alright. She was startled because she hadn't realized it had happened but we were very happy with the quick response that she got. This is our third year renewing the service and we're very happy with it, it's working.

I got it for my mom because the service was affordable and convenient. We also liked that they provided us with a lock that we can put outside our front door. If emergency services need to come in, they can use the key to get into the house without breaking in. So far we've had a good experience with them. We test it every month and it works well. So far they have been very dependable and have been there for us when we needed them. The device had to be used when my mom accidentally slipped and fell in the kitchen. She cracked her skull open but she was able to use the Medical Guardian device to get help. She would've died without it. They're very trustworthy.

It's for my dad, we just research them and we felt that it was the best one because it can go straight to a hospital. Usually they will call me first and then I can decide whether to call the hospital or 911 and I like that. One time my dad fell when I had gone to the grocery store. He knew to press the button and they called me when I was just leaving the store. I went, got him, and then took him to the doctor to be checked out. Every time I've dealt with them they are all very professional and very helpful. The device is fine, it just got some age on it and the necklace part of it doesn't work. I mean the device, is just worn down.

I used to be a nurse before I retired. I took care of a lot of people that needed help because they were falling a lot but that never used the equipment they were supposed to be using. Now I'm 90 years old and can't walk too well. I've tried to make things easier but I finally decided to follow my own advice and get something like this. I live alone in a high rise building, but I know they'll be able to come and get me since emergency people come around this place a lot. I've had to use it already, but it happened while I was out. I went to the bank one day and left my walker out in the car. On my way in I tripped and hit my head. The people there tried to help me but I had the little box in my hand so I just pushed the button and Medical Guardian send help right away to pick me up and take me to the emergency room. Every once in a while I'll hit the button by accident. Sometimes it kind of scares me because a voice will come in and talk to me all of a sudden. I've been trying to pull it up higher so that it doesn't hit anything, but it's something that will happen if I'm not careful. I'm wondering if they have any bracelets I could use to avoid all of that. Other than that, every once in a while I'll forget to put it on.

The man that I talked to when I signed up was very true and honest when explaining all the options they had. I found him to be very professional. He took a lot of time to explain things well to me and even gave me examples of how I could use the button, so in the end I signed up. I used to have a different company before, but I like Medical Guardian's pendant better. It's a little bit longer and more comfortable. I like the portability of it and the fact that I can take it with me when I leave because it has the GPS feature. The only problem I have with it is that I don't like wearing something that big around my neck all the time. Thankfully I've never had to use it but one time I heard a beeping noise and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. It turned out that it was the Medical Guardian people calling me. Apparently the button was pushed by accident when I was picking up a book from the floor. I'm quite happy with it, I feel like I made a good choice.

We researched and they were the first name that popped up, so we went with it. If my husband is not home during the day, I carry the little button with me. It requires very little pressure to go off, so we have accidentally set it off a couple of times. I've used it twice to call for help on purpose. They responded quickly both times and things were fine. I also do a test once a month, usually in the middle of the night, and it's a bit creepy. The voice just comes on and sometimes I don't even know what they're saying because the main part is in another room. They need to recalculate when they do that sort of thing because it's just frightening. Otherwise it's fine.

We researched and signed up with them because they were one of the cheaper services with the most useful things. I'm in my 80s so I use it all the time. My wife wears one too when we're around the house. That way, if either one of us is alone, we don't have to worry about getting help when we fall. For elderly people this is more of a necessity to be honest. If we didn't have it, we could end up on the floor for hours. That has happened to my mother who lives in a senior citizen complex. She fell in the middle of the night and had to wait until the next morning when someone came to check in on her. It really gives us a sense of security to have it. The device is very easy to use, useful, and dependable. They're very courteous whenever we call, even if it's by accident. Actually, most of the times we call it is by accident. They actually encourage us to call them once a month or so. We're just glad to have it.

We live out in the country on 6 acres of land, so it's not like there's another house next door with people that can help us, so we went looking for something. When we initially got things set up with them, everything was very easy to do. Since my husband will not wear anything around his neck, we got him the wrist band. He wears it when he goes down to feed our horse. He has to walk a good distance from the house to get to it, but he's covered by the service even out there. He has never had to use it, but it makes us feel very secure. Especially when I have to leave for a couple of days at a time and he's alone at home. Every time that I call in to check it, it works just fine. We always get an answer on the phone within 30 seconds, they ask me if it's an emergency, get our names, and that's that. They're very thorough. I also get a confirming email that lets me know things worked the way they were supposed to. I only wish that the wristbands came in different sizes. The one my husband has is very tight on his wrist, so it'd be helpful if there were more sizes or if there was a way to extend the wristband.

Honestly, there were some other services out there that were better. With those you could speak directly into the device instead of having to use a separate thing. I didn't want to spend a lot of money for that though and that was one of the biggest reasons why I got Medical Guardian. I've never had to use it but I've had some accidents where I bumped it. One time I was making candy and was holding up the pot to put little drops of chocolate on a sheet. Apparently the thing that I wear around my neck got pushed against the pan and set the alarm off. I had my bedroom door closed, that's where the base thing is, so I couldn't hear it when they called. Very soon after the phone rang and they asked me if I was ok.

I got it for my mother. She used to live alone out in the country of East Tennessee, so I looked for a company that had good coverage over there and Medical Guardian came up. She wore the wristband since she preferred it over the necklace. As far as I know, it worked well. Every time she used it, even if it was by accident, they responded. Everything worked fine and they did what they were supposed to do. When my mother passed away, we gave the system to my aunt and she took over the payments and everything. She wears the necklace instead, but she likes how everything works. It gives me and my little sister peace of mind since we live far away on other states.

I'm 85 and live about 2 and a half hours away from my son's house. Although I'm in pretty good shape, you never know what could happen. I live in the woods so there's not that many people around that could help me if I need it, especially during the winter time. Because of that my son and I checked out a lot of different services and we both decided that they were the best ones out there. The device itself is good, though I don't like the string that it hangs from. It's kind of corny looking. I had a bit of a funny situation with the button once. I was over at my son's house taking care of their dogs while they were out on a trip. I had left my button at home on my dining table, but I was wearing the wristband. All of a sudden the phone rang in his house, so I answered. It was the Medical Guardian guys saying that they had gotten an alarm. They thought I was in trouble and dispatched people to my house. I told them to call it off because I was alright and they took care of that right away and did the right thing for me. Apparently what happened was that the carpenter that was doing some work around my house accidentally pushed the button. It was a funny situation, but it made me feel confident about the service. I feel secure knowing that if I have a problem they'll do what they need to do and I'll be alright.

It has been a few years since I got it and I'm quite satisfied with it. The device is easy to carry on my belt and have it on me all the time. I haven't used it for an emergency situation yet, but I've tested it and it has gone off accidentally when I was carrying it in my pocket. Every time it has worked the way it's supposed to. It gives me a lot of security. I've seen they have a couple of new things that I want to order. One of them is the button that can detect the fall on its own and sent out an alert, even if you can't push the button yourself. They also have the thing that you can put on your door with an extra key. With that emergency services can come in to help me without breaking in.

I'm 84 years old and live alone. Last summer I was in the hospital when a nurse recommended some kind of medical alert service for me because I have osteoporosis and have broken a lot of bones. Since my grandson works for Medical Guardian, we decided to go with it. So far my experiences with them have been good. I have the device on me all the time, day and night. Earlier this year, towards the end of January, I apparently hit the button inadvertently. They called me back very promptly and followed through with me. I assured them that no one had fallen and that was it. They were very prompt and reassuring. Having it feels like there's someone else with me all the time, I feel much safer that way.

I saw the commercial on TV and thought it was something I could use since I am disabled and have a lot of medical problems. I get light headed and feel like I'm going to pass out fairly often. The service has been great. They sent out everything very promptly and nothing in the package was damaged or anything. I have the button on my neck 24/7, though right now I'm wearing the wrist one. The base unit is in my bedroom since I spend a lot of time in there. My grandson has accidentally hit the button and set the alarm off. He just saw it and decided to push it. I heard a voice come on in my bedroom and they started talking with me. Because of that I know it works. The representatives that I've talked to have been very nice and concerned about me. That has been really important to me. If I get chest pains, get dizzy, or black out, I know I can always push the button to get help.

There were a couple of reasons why we went with them. One was the good reviews that they had and another was the range of the system. We could go as far as 1300 ft. from the base station and it would still pick up on us, which meant we would be safe even while out in the yard. The main reason though, was that it was affordable. Our house is out in the country and we needed to have 2 base stations so that everything would be covered properly. Medical Guardian let us have those 2 stations hooked up to the landline so that the price would be affordable for us. So far I just check the buttons once in a while to make sure they work. Everyone that responds has been very pleasant and nice. I haven't had a single problem.

My son helped me pick it. It's a wonderful thing to have in my home. The button is comfortable to wear. When I'm home I have it on all day and, at night, I keep it by my bed. One night I was dehydrated, fell on the floor, and couldn't get up. I was able to crawl over to the nightstand where I kept the button and pressed it. They came on and I asked them to call my son so he could help me. They called him, he came out and took me to the hospital. It was a real life saver. I think it's very important for people like me to have it, especially as we grow older and have a harder time getting around. It's comforting to have it in my home.

I'm 80 years old and live alone, so I needed some protection in case I ever had an accident. That's why I got Medical Guardian. I have the mobile device that I carry with me if I go out to the store, to get the mail, or to Walmart. That way, if I were to fall, it's handy for me. I have not had a medical alert where I needed to use it. One time though my sister-in-law, who lives next door, accidentally pressed the button. Next thing we know, the fire department, an ambulance, and the police were here to check in on us. They checked both in my house and her house since they were afraid something serious had happened. They were very prompt at getting emergency services out here. The only thing is that the service is kind of expensive, especially for someone that's on a fixed income like me.

One of the things I really liked was that you could be a fair distance away from the base and it would still work. That meant that my dad, the person that uses it, could go outside with it and would still be covered. A lot of other systems that we looked at didn't have that feature and, since my dad is in the yard a lot, we thought they would be the best option. My parents have used the button quite a bit. My dad has had several gall bladder attacks and my mom used it when she thought she was having a heart attack. They've always been good and respond to them. I had one problem though, and that was that I was supposed to be contacted when my parents set off the alarm, but they didn't do that. I called them about it and they fixed the problem immediately. I feel a lot better knowing that they have it.

I live 6 and a half miles away from town and really needed something like this. There was no particular reason why I picked them, they just called me first and I decided to give it a try. I wear it all the time, it's great. I had to use it the week before Christmas when I was going out to town for physical therapy. When I went out the door to start the vehicle I apparently blacked out and, next thing I know, I'm on the ground. I pushed the button to get help and somebody was out there in 15 minutes to help me back up. From that I learned that I have to change some of the people I put on the emergency contact list. Some of them own businesses and are not immediately available if I need them.

Picking it was a judgment call. I just got a good feeling about it and felt comfortable when I was talking to the salesperson, so I went for it. I wear it 24 hours a day and I'm very satisfied with it. I had to use it once when I was out in public and they responded and had an ambulance out there in less than 10 minutes. It was really fast. They are very proficient, accurate, and professional. I haven't had any issues at all. Their price is very competitive too. Other companies out there are charging pretty much the same, if not the same, for this kind of service. I'm happy with what I'm paying, I mean, you can't really put a price on a human life. If something were to happen to my ability to pay for it though, I would hope they would to charge me a little less'

I've only really used the button once and it was by accident. I just woke up one night and went down to get a book since I couldn't sleep. I was just doing that when I heard a strange noise. It was 2 o'clock in the morning and I thought that was odd, so I put all my books away and decided to get back up when I saw a strange man standing at the top of the stairs. I didn't have a hearing aid or anything so I couldn't hear him. He just motioned to his neck and I realized he was asking about the necklace bit that I wear. I had the wristband on but I realized that I had pushed the button into my book case and set off the alarm without noticing. They were certainly pretty prompt to get out there and I thought that was really good. It's a very convenient thing. With it I don't worry as much if something happens, I know I can just hit the button and things will be alright.

I got it because it covered all of my mother's needs and the price was right for us. We've had it for 2 years now and it has been wonderful. They gave us 2 necklaces that my mom can wear plus the monitoring system that you plug in and use to talk. I like the product. It's nice that I can set up and decide who gets alerted first whenever the button goes off. Usually I get a text message and a phone call on my cell first. If I don't respond, they'll try my home phone next and if that doesn't work either they'll call my sister. If no one responds at all, they will call the EMS and send them out right away. Most of the time the calls are because my mom falls and needs help getting up. We've only only had to call the EMS once since usually I can respond right away and get to my mom within a minute. They respond rapidly and live up to their promises.

I live by myself and, one time, I fell 10 steps and couldn't get back up or move. I laid on the floor until a friend came over some 2 hours later and called the paramedics for me. It turned out I had broken my back and, after that, I was really concerned about my safety. We hadn't planned for my friend to come over but, if he hadn't showed up, I would still be there on the floor. Because I didn't want to be in that position ever again, I got the medical alert system set up even before I got out of the hospital. What convinced me about them was mostly the price but I was really impressed with my first interaction with them too. The whole purchasing experience was great and they did a good job of setting things up too. It's a relatively new thing for me and fortunately I've never had to use it. Still I wear the button 24/7, it's very lightweight and I don't even notice I'm wearing it. Last week my house was broken into in the middle of the night and my car was stolen. I didn't even realize that had happened until the next morning. While trying to process it, it occurred to me that I could've used the device in that situation too if my life had been in danger.

We looked things up online because my husband needed something. I looked at the reviews they had and thought they would be a good company to go with. He has the little pendant he can push whenever he falls. We've called them 2 or 3 times since we got it. Last time we used it was about a year ago. He had fallen and I couldn't help him get up, so I pushed the device and called them. They responded right away and sent out an ambulance and the paramedics out to help us. We also had one time when our dog got a hold of the pendant and pushed it. They called right away and asked us if we were ok. We just told them there was nothing wrong and that was that. I'm really satisfied. They always answer and come out as soon as they can and get us the help that we need when we need it.

The reason I got it for my mother and my mother-in-law was that they had the highest ratings. It has been 3 years since then. They haven't had a situation where they needed it for an emergency, but there have been some false alarms. Medical Guardian has always responded quickly to any kind of alert. Usually it takes them less than 30 seconds and they always check with them to see if they need any help. Luckily, we've been able to cancel the alerts before they send anybody out, but we know it works. The buttons are easy to use. They're not cumbersome and they can carry them easily. At one point one of the watches we have stopped functioning. We called them and they just shipped another one right away to replace it.

We used to have a device that came from an association in Florida that had offices in Orlando. At some point they stopped providing the service so I looked around trying to find the most convenient device. I found Medical Guardian and since I could have the wrist strap, the necklace, and the base unit, I got it. I haven't had to use it for an emergency, but on a typical day I get up in the morning and make sure that the thing is working alright. I then put on the wrist device and wear it around the house all day long. When I go out to the store or somewhere away from my house, I put the device on my belt and take it with me. When I press the button to test it they respond in half a minute or so and ask me if there's anything they can help me with. They're there for me. I'm very pleased with the product, it works exactly as they said it would.

I read about the different services online and decided that Medical Guardian was the one for me. It's very handy to have. When I go out by myself I can take the little monitor with me and strap it to my purse in case I need it. I check it often to see if it's still working. Every time I have a problem, I can just call them and they will correct things right away. I used it once for a medical emergency and they were here in no time to take me to the hospital. There was another incident that my friend found very funny. At about eleven o'clock one evening, the fire alarms in my house went off. I didn't want to call my son or anyone since it was so late, so I thought I'd just wait until the next morning to take care of that. I just shut the door and let that go all night long but apparently that set off the medical alarm. Next thing I know, early in the morning, 3 paramedics went into my bedroom thinking that there was something wrong. I called the company later and they said that something had malfunctioned and that the buzzing could have been the reason why that went off. At least I know that it works because of that. I feel safe with it.

I had five other devices and wasn't really satisfied with them so, when I heard their advertisement, I decided to give it a try. I called them, they explained how everything worked and what the service consisted of, and I just went ahead and joined them. I live alone so this comes in handy. It's like having another person in the house with me. So far they've given me good service and I've had no problems with it. I only had to use the button once when I fell. I was in a tight spot and couldn't get back up on my own, so I pushed the button and they came out to get me off the floor. Since I was ok I didn't have to be taken to the hospital or anything. I also accidentally pushed the button while doing something and they were very quick to react. They called and made sure that nothing was wrong. They are just quick to respond, nice, friendly, and also very serious about their job. The money is reasonable for the kind of service that they offer.

I just went on Google search and since they had decent reviews I chose it for my mother who is 90 years old. The button is easy to wear, it hangs around her neck and she can access it anytime she needs it. We also have the little boxes downstairs so the signal from it can be picked up very easily. On one occasion I was out of state in Washington and my husband was out working when my mother had an incident. It was 9 am in the morning, a time when there was no one else around to help her, so she used the necklace to call for the paramedics. They were there in 5 minutes to help her. They also contacted my husband and let him know what had happened. I'm really glad she remembered to use it then. Initially I thought that the service was rather expensive, but considering that they were able to contact the paramedics and get a hold of my husband, I think it's all worth it.

I needed to go with a good company and since they were rated highly, I picked them. I had to use it back in December when I fell backwards and hit my head. It wasn't that harsh, but the lady that came on was very comforting and responsive. They notified the people we have listed as emergency contact and they were here quickly. We were all very content about the fact that everything happened quickly. They're also very quick when we test the device every month. We just think that, overall, they're all wonderful. The one thing is that I wish the medallion that I wear was a little smaller. I'm not a very big person so it's rather large for me. I have been keeping it in my pocket rather than hanging it around my neck because of that. It just gets in the way. We had the bracelet for a while, but it wasn't any easier to use or wear.

I'm pretty impressed with the company. Researched it on the internet, and they were very courteous in customer service, and they answered my questions right away. It gives you versatility, being able to use it anywhere, and not just in your home. So far I've just had to use it for testing. One time one of our grandchildren pushed the button on the WiFi device, and I didn't know whether it armed anything or not. I pushed the small button that comes on the thing you hang around your neck and got right through to somebody to talk to right away. So I was glad to hear that, glad to know that it worked.

I bought it because of the price and how helpful the person was when I called for information. I think it's fine quality; it's what I would expect. As far as cost, the peace of mind is invaluable. I use it in a little different way than most people, probably. My dad lives in an assisted living community, and he has a nurse's station like fifty feet from his room. They only have emergency call buttons next to the toilet and next to the bed, though. I was finding that when he would get in trouble or fall or something, it was never in those places. I needed a way to help him, so basically now when he pushes his button, they call me, and then I call somebody at his residence to go help him. It's not necessarily an ambulance situation; it was more of a way just to get him help at the place that he's in, as twisted as that seems. I feel like everybody's always been very friendly and helpful, and able to go above and beyond to get issues sorted out. The customer service has been really good, even though it did take us a while to get that worked out to where we like. At first they would call my dad, and as soon as he would say "I need help," then they would dispatch emergency even though it's not because he's injured or having a life-threatening situation; it's just that he needed help getting up out of his wheel chair or getting to the bathroom or something. So it took us a while to get that sorted out so that they weren't sending out the emergency vehicle every time, which is probably what most people want the system for.

I went online and researched several, and I really liked what I was reading about Medical Guardian, so I called, and I was really impressed with the people I talked to. When I called for support I got a very positive response. I've already recommended it to a neighbor and she bought it, too. On a typical day, if I'm going out I put on the bracelet and make sure I've got the little black bag with my purse. If I'm home all day, I use one around my neck. Both of them are comfortable and very accessible. I feel very secure in either situation, especially given the fact that there's a lock box on the outside of my house where EMTs could get in. I think that's an nice feature. I feel like if I did fall, I could very quickly get help.

We live in a retirement community, and they stopped using a different medical alert system that they had, choosing to use Medical Guardian instead. They offered it to us, and we didn't have another option, but it was cheaper than what we were paying at the retirement village, and I was able to pay for it by the year with the assurance that if after 3 months I no longer needed it, I would get a refund, so I would say that it worked out very well. We have it because my husband has balance problems and he falls, and I can't help him up. There's not really a typical day with it. We're 88 and 92 years old, and we just do what we can get away with! The time we had to use it the service was excellent. We got very, very good attention. I made sure that they had a local response company, so we didn't have to wait very long for assistance. The system is very efficient, and they're definitely trustworthy. I would recommend it.

When I signed up, I was suffering from dizziness, and so as I am 76 and live alone, I need to have something to provide safety such that if I did fall and couldn't get up, I would have a way of getting hold of someone. I am due to check it to see if everything is working well. I usually try and remember to do that once a month, but I haven't lately'I am a little forgetful, so that's another reason that I have it'but every time I have needed to use it, somebody calls me within seconds. Typically I wear it around my neck. At night when I'm asleep I place it under my pillow, so it's easily accessible. It is a small unit, such that people would not know what it is. Very small and non-obtrusive, and it's easy to wear or use the necklace option, so I'm happy with the service. I think it's a very reasonable value, and it's very easy for me to pay, because they have automatic transfer set up to have the money taken from my account.

My friend got it for her mother, so when she was really pleased with it, we got it for my dad, too, since they live in the same area. My dad likes it because nobody can see it. It's not like a big heavy device that he has to wear. Every time we call it they're just Johnny-on-the-spot. We had to use it in one time right after he first got it. He was having chest pains or something, but the EMT came and it was nothing. We didn't have to call the ambulance or anything. Every time we call for testing, they're all really nice, and they don't give us any grief. We're really pleased with it. My brother says it's like a life saver, because we both live far away from him. I live in another state, so we don't worry about him as much.

We just went online, and through searching we found out that Medical Guardian was pretty much the best one out there for my mother. I have recommended it before. She wears the one that's like a necklace, and she seems very happy with it. She uses it when nobody is home or and she's in the house pretty much by herself. So far, every time she's had to test and reset the button every month or so, she's always had somebody come right on the line. We've never had any trouble with customer support at all. We've been very pleased with it, and she can take it out with her when she goes outside or anything.

I was having a very serious medical condition, caused by my doctor, and I was ending up on the floor quite a bit. I'm not one to stay on the floor'I got myself up'but if I could not get myself up, or if I had injured myself, I would be using the little button around my neck. It's something that you can wear around your neck and it's not a huge thing. I get up in the morning and I put the little neck thing on and go about doing my chores, taking a shower and so on and so forth. It gives me a sense of security that I'm not really alone. A couple of times my cat had stepped on the big box, and they're right there on the spot, and that is great. You feel that you actually have somebody in the house with you going through the experience when you have to use it and getting their medical advice'should I go to the hospital? Should I go to my regular doctor?'and so on. I think it's great for me.

I would definitely recommend it. We saw good user reviews when we did research on medical alert companies, and they are very responsive, caring, and prompt. We had a device that stopped working and the next day they had sent a new replacement device. We appreciate all the help that we have received so far, and we've felt very confident using it, and being able to go places, and have my husband still be as independent as possible, but be safer. He once had a fall and he wasn't able to get up because he was very weak from an infection and pneumonia. We had fall detection on our Medical Guardian, so the paramedics came right away and took him to the veterans administration hospital where he was treated. Now he's doing much better, so we consider it a really good investment in safety. I feel like it's really saved my husband's life already just in the short time we had it.

I had done research on several, and I liked what Medical Guardian did. It does give me a sense of security. I live alone, and enjoy being able to know that if I fall and can't get up, there's someone there that will get help. It's simple, just a matter of remembering to take it with you every day, and to charge it frequently. I haven't had to use it for emergencies, but I do test it once a month to make sure it's working. I have set it off twice accidentally, and they were very prompt in answering the call. I was just leaning up against something, and with the buttons facing outward it will cause it to go off. I don't know if there's a way to correct that so it won't accidentally go off.

My mother wears it daily. She's 86 years old and did not want to give up living on her own, but had that fear that if she had a fall no one would be there to help her. So she does wear it everyday, and it's given her that security. She was being over seen by visiting nurses and it was the nurse associated with that program that made the recommendation. She's very pleased with it. She really does like that the necklace portion goes over her head and she doesn't struggle to get it on, and she feels very comfortable. I think that it's good. My mother has had some accidents where she's set it off. They do contact her to make sure that she is okay, but there is a little bit of a time lapse. It's not immediate but they get right back to her.
