  1. Hi. There. I am posting this from me windows computer. That’s what my grandson says. At least. This product, has been the joy of my existence, since my first. Heartattack. Since my kids all moved away and I’m lonely, sometimes I press the button just to hear someone talk to me. Thanks Life alert. For keeping m company.
  2. I have been using life alert system since some time and I’m quite satisfied by the features my device has got!!
  3. I’m uncertain about WHERE to leave comments on your senior list review of the Medical Alert monitoring system. I’m using iPhone 5. Hope this is the right place? I am. a very satisfied user. They monitor the battery on my pendant and notify me when battery is running low. They encourage me to test system periodically and are very pleasant if I accidentally trigger it. Peace of mind is grand and I KNOW FOR A FACT that equipment works and help is only a few minutes away.
  4. I sold my soul to the devil with this company!!! Life alert is no longer needed, but they refuse to allow us out of the contract even though we have followed the guidelines of it to a “T.” It was acquired for our mother whom has been moved into a 24/7 fully staffed care home which has it’s own medical alert system & constant staff surveillance. Moving mother was difficult enough…life alert directly added to the turmoil of the whole situation. Life Alert does not actually care about your loved one, they just want their money. Don’t make the same mistake we have….choose a different company!
    1. This is happening to me right now. I moved in with my mom and they still won’t cancel unless I have a doctors letter or a caregivers letter. I cancelled my debit card so they can’t get my money
  5. My very active independent 88 yr old mother has life alert. Mother owns her own home. She still drives safely. Does projects for the church ministry and is active with friends. Six months post hip replacement surgery she dislocated her hip bending over in her kitchen. On the floor in pain alone she pushed her life alert button. A moment later, from two rooms away, she could hear the sound of the Life Alert device dialing, then the ringing sound and the operator answering. Mother called out I’m on the floor. The operator assured her she was heard and informed Informed her paramedics were responding. Within 10 minutest they were there. Her daughter also. Best if all she was home the same day. Also when my mother was in rehab post surgery life alert suspended payments until she was home again.
  6. Good information. One system I found after researching all the companies is Freedom Alert. I chose to go with that one as it doesn’t require a monthly fee which I found prohibitive. True – it doesn’t have a monitoring set up but you program the 911 or any other numbers you would like it to call when you pres the button on the pendant. Also it doesn’t require you be near the phone – it has a built in microphone on the pendant itself. I’ve been very happy with it.
  7. Are there any other medical alert system reviews? Good content here but can more added? Senior emergency alert systems are very useful and they save lives everyday. Knowing which ones are the best and most reliable is great for caregivers, families, and seniors themselves.
  8. Hi there, It’s really interesting to visit your blog, it has all the appropriate information about medical syatem.I am very thankful to you for giving such kind of information.
  9. I can appreciate your concerns when it comes to signing a contract, but I would like to add one thing that wasn’t mentioned in your review. Many of these medic alert companies outsource their call centers…and ultimately this is what you are paying for when you make the decision to own a medic alert system. Therefore, to me it is far more important to seek out a quality company that trains their call center in the way that Lifealert does as opposed to worrying about the length of the contract. That is the second thing to look at when evaluating medic alert companies…not the first.
  10. You can get the same service from many other companies for much less money. Sometimes as little as $20 a month, but $28 is more common.
  11. Great post, It is a type of warning device which helps to protect you or a loved one in an emergency… You gave nice information for this Medical Alert System. Thanks.
