***Staff Favorite***  Premium Guardian
: $49.95 per month: The Premium Guardian is the most advanced solution Medical Guardian offers.  It combines GPS and cellular capabilities to work both in and outside the home.  In addition, automatic fall detection can be added for an additional $10 per month.  It has a speaker in the pendant that is nice and clear when communicating to the nice folks at the call center.  The small, lightweight pendant can be worn as a pendant around the neck or clipped to a belt loop.  It has a longer battery life than the Mobile Guardian and will last for 36 hours.

What We Like about Medical Guardian:

No long term contracts (90 day minimum), flexible pricing plans (Annual, Quarterly, Monthly), free standard shipping, no set-up fees, no equipment costs, and easy to install.   Great service, each time we pushed the button for testing, the customer service reps on the other end of the line were very professional and courteous.  Excellent range on the Classic Guardian system (1300 feet).  Water resistant.  Backup battery included for every system. We also like the sleek, updated hardware that may be easier to convince a loved one to wear.  No adverse interactions for pace-makers.

The price for the Premium Guardian with fall detection added is a tad high, it's $10 per month more than it's closest mobile-fall-detection competitor.  However, I'm willing to pay that extra cost for excellent service and accurate, advanced technology.  The cost for the Classic Guardian is right on track with similar systems.

  1. My house/pet sitting business puts in different homes and different towns a good portion of my time. I also do teaching assignments. In other words I am an over 80 year old who wants a system that would be really mobile. Also AT&T does not provide me with reliable mobile coverage/service in a lot of my areas so I am seriously considering changing to Verizon. What emergency device do you have to meet my needs.
