Tips for Choosing Senior Alert Systems

The Personal Medical Alert System I Recommended for My Mom

A  per­son­al med­ical alert is the home safe­ty sys­tem you rely on to sum­mon help if you fall and are unable to reach your tele­phone.

The sys­tem con­sists of three com­po­nents:

  1. A but­ton you wear around your neck or on a wrist­band,
  2. The base com­mu­ni­ca­tor that plugs into your tele­phone, and
  3. A cen­tral mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion on stand­by 24 hours a day

There are three pri­or­i­ties in choos­ing your per­son­al med­ical alert sys­tem:

Reliability……Reliability…….and Reli­a­bil­i­ty.

For­tu­nate­ly, the con­cept of a med­ical alert but­ton has been around for more than twen­ty years and, no mat­ter what brand you choose, the tech­nol­o­gy involved has become very reli­able.

That leaves one major con­sid­er­a­tion in choos­ing a device – PRICE.

My mom didn’t get this far in life with­out learn­ing some­thing about being a savvy con­sumer.

Aler­tUSA — the brand she trusts — offers the low­est-price sys­tem on the mar­ket.  Peri­od.

A senior med­ical alarm sys­tem from Aler­tUSA is as low as $15 per month – and there’s no long term con­tract or com­mit­ment.  You can can­cel at any time.  And there’s no ini­tial set up fee.

Per­haps the dif­fer­ence between $15 per month and, say, $25 per month (many sys­tems are a lot more) doesn’t seem like much.  But con­sid­er that you may be rely­ing on your sys­tem for years and years.  Over the course of eight years, for exam­ple, you can save $960 or more.

You’re get­ting the same (or bet­ter) qual­i­ty device and the same (or bet­ter) qual­i­ty cen­tral sta­tion mon­i­tor­ing your but­ton and stand­ing by to sum­mon help.  Why pay more?

With Aler­tUSA, I nev­er have to wor­ry if Mom’s all right.  Their cen­tral mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion lists my phone num­ber as the first one to call if there’s a prob­lem.  If my phone isn’t ring­ing, I know she’s okay.

Choose the same sys­tem I rec­om­mend­ed for her – Aler­tUSA.
