- Affordable Monitoring Plans: Although the startup cost is a bit steeper than others, the savings with RescueTouch can be seen in the cost of monitoring options that start at $24 per month, while other companies charge $30 to $50 a month. RescueTouch also offers discounts to Veterans, AARP members, and health professionals, great news for your wallet.
- Variety of Plans: In total, RescueTouch offers six different options for the monitoring of their systems. These plans include family monitoring, professional monitoring, and even options geared towards seniors who live with a partner. I appreciated how so many different options ensure that there’s a system suited to almost everyone’s needs.
- Unique Features: RescueTouch features just about everything I’ve come to expect from a medical alert system like GPS and fall detection; however, they even throw in a few special features like geo-fencing and Chit Chat, the latter of which allows for communication between two RescueTouch devices. But more on that later.
- Easy Operation: RescueTouch’s wireless system requires no installation or complicated setup. I simply plugged my device into the charging cradle, made a test call to the monitoring center, and began using my device. I’m a total sucker for simplicity, and I know the seniors who I work with feel the same way.
