I built this site to help you buy a medical alert system.
When someone I knew bought a medical alert without doing her research, and ended up with a bad purchase from a bad company, I knew there must be a whole lot of people just like her.
She didn’t buy the wrong system because she’s dumb. She bought it because she’s busy and didn’t have time to research everything.
So I set out to do my own research and share it with people like you.
I’ve tried to make the site objective and helpful. There are an awful lot of sites out there that cover medical alerts, but a lot of them seem pretty scammy. They’re pretty much designed to make you want to leave the site. Of course, when you do you usually click an ad, and they make money.
Now it’s true that this site also runs ads, and I do like it when people click on those ads, but my goal is to help you, not just send you along to a manufacturer’s site with no more knowledge than you had when you started.
The ads help to pay for my time working on this site. I also have a day job, kids, and elderly parents, so the little bit of money that comes in is helpful. I also link to products on this site, and a lot of those links are “affiliate links,” which means that I might/probably get a small commission if you buy the product. It doesn’t change the price you pay. So if you use an affiliate link it’s like giving me a gift that doesn’t cost you anything. If that’s not your cup of tea, just Google the name of the product and I won’t get anything.
If you have comments or feedback, please let me know!
