Senior Alert Medical is a part of Medical Care Alert/American Response Technology. Founded in 2009, they've been providing PERS (personal alert systems) for seniors in all fifty states. Their support center is open 24/7, 365 days a year. When a senior presses the emergency alert button on their wrist band, the call center alerts either an EMS service, family member, or neighbor, all depending on the senior's situation. There are no hidden set up fees or equipment fees, just a monthly rate.
Senior Alert Medical has very good prices for the services that they provide. There is no set-up fee and the equipment used comes at no cost to the customer. The monthly rate is as low as $27.45.
Senior Alert Medical can be taken with you when you move. The system only requires a landline to operate. All you have to do is alert the operators of your new location when you move.
The system is paid for month-to-month. There is no need to fear being locked into a contract that you might not want to stick with for an extended amount of time.
When a senior pushes the PERS button, the operator who answers has their personal medical information on hand. This is incredibly useful in event of medical emergency when an EMS team needs to be dispatched. The operator also has access to family information so that they can reach them if the situation requires.
The Senior Medical Alert system requires a landline to operate. With technology moving further and further towards the wireless, it is increasingly inconvenient and sometimes unnecessary to have a landline. However, if you want to use Senior Medical Alert, you are going to have to be able to provide a landline.
The installation for this system is fairly simple, you just have to plug it into an electrical outlet and a phone jack. However, this installation process may not be simple for the senior who is going to be using the system. Some seniors who need this system will require assistance with the installation but will not be able to receive that assistance from Senior Medical Alert.
