2. Aloe Care Health - Best Caregiver Features
What We Like Most:
- Sophisticated voice commands
- Wall-mounted fall detection
- Motion sensors with activity monitoring
- Helpful caregiver app
A newcomer to the world of medical alerts, Aloe Care Health has quickly become one of my favorites through its combination of reliable monitoring and sophisticated in-home systems. Unlike other medical alerts that require additional pendants for fall detection, Aloe Care Health’s in-home medical alerts use wall-mounted fall detection that creates a digital map of the room.
What I appreciate most about Aloe Care Health, however, is its voice-command feature. With any of its in-home units, users can place emergency calls simply by speaking, which is great for people who are prone to misplacing or not wearing their buttons. Users can also place calls to caregivers, and caregivers can place direct calls to a user’s system for quick check-ins.
At the center of Aloe Care Health systems is its handy smartphone app, on which a loved one can keep track of a user’s system and receive notifications for temperature abnormalities, lack of motion, and any emergency calls placed.
Aloe Care Health prices are a bit steep at first because of the company’s initial $149 equipment-fee charge for its basic system. The upside, however, is that you own your system and subsequent monitoring costs only $29.99 per month afterward.
