Are you confused about medical alerts?

You're not alone.

Most people who start looking for a medical alert find themselves overwhelmed, suspicious, and confused.

Is this you?

You've looked at medical alert websites, but they just want you to call and talk to a pushy salesperson.

You've heard horror stories of people buying the wrong medical alert and getting trapped in an expensive long-term contract.

You've asked at your local senior center, but they don't know the pros and cons of different systems.

You worry that the systems won't work as advertised.

Good thing you're here, because...

This website offers honest, no-nonsense advice about how to buy a medical alert system.

And it might even convince you that a medical alert system is not right for you or your loved one. That's okay, too.

Here are the top 5 things you need to know about buying a medical alert system in 2017:

  1. Don't buy a system that locks you into a long term contract. Just don't.
  2. Prices don't vary much between companies, but add-ons can bleed you dry. (Don't pay $3/mo for two years for a lockbox you could buy at the hardware store for $17.)
  3. There's a tradeoff between ease of use and coverage. The easiest "set and forget" systems only cover you at home, and sometimes only in parts of your home. The units with the greatest coverage range (cellular units that work at home, outside the house, and around town) require the most thinking and planning to make sure the unit is always charged and close enough to press in an emergency.
  4. Most "medical alert review sites" give their best ratings to the companies that pay them the biggest kickbacks.
  5. There's no perfect system, so make a decision and move forward.

But that just scratches the surface.

I've set up a super-quick 4-lesson series to help you make a better decision when you buy.

You'll learn how to find the right life alert system so you can keep safe.

You'll learn how to avoid overpaying hundreds of dollars a year.

You'll learn the four word question you must ask before buying a system, and why it matters.

You'll learn which features really make a difference, and which just distract you.

You'll learn how to evaluate return policies to protect your purchase.

And you'll learn how some companies will trick you into paying over $100 for something you can buy for less than $20 at your local hardware store.
