Because the number of medical alert companies can be overwhelming, I’ve selected a few that I like to include on this page. I hope this will make your decision easier.
1. My Favorite Medical Alert
My favorite medical alert is the Medipendant by Medical Alarm Concepts. I think it’s got the best mix of great coverage throughout the house and yard, combined with ease of use and a company that really stands behind their product. It’s a monitored medical alert that has a pendant you can talk through (instead of a speakerphone base station). Read my Medipendant review.
2. My Favorite Standard Monitored Medical Alerts
For standard speakerphone models, pretty much all the companies provide very similar equipment and very similar monitoring. Two companies I like are Bay Alarm Medical and LifeStation. They both have pretty much the same equipment, but their prices and policies are a little different. Bay Alarm is cheaper.
3. My Favorite Cell Phone and Mobile Alert
For cell phone and mobile alerts, I like the products from GreatCall, including the Splash that connects to the 5Star Personal Security system.
4. My Favorite No-fee Alerts
No fee alerts call your friends and family instead of a monitoring station. Some people like them because you don’t have to pay the monthly fee to the monitoring company. The unit I like best is the Logicmark Freedom Alert, approx. $280. (That link takes you to my complete review of the system.) They also have a less expensive version that only dials 911. It’s the Logicmark Guardian Alert 911 (approx. $150).
