Care Systems

Do you need a monitored system?

A monitored system means the call button connects with someone at a 24/7 dispatch centre. Other systems can call a person of your choosing like a family member or friend.

At the end of the day, it still relies on the loved one wearing the Medical Alert Device and being able to make contact with the provider.

Do you need fall detection?

Some companies offer fall detection for an additional fee using the medical alert. Separate devices, an app for your mobile phone, a watch to wear that will notify the monitors of the device that you have fallen.

This is a feature that many systems provide however it is not without issues. The device must be worn and calibrated, battery-operated you’ll need to make sure that the device comes with 2 batteries.

With drop indicating devices if you lay on the floor then an emergency call may be activated.

Beware of complicated pricing plans and hidden fees.

Companies will sometimes add these to ‘trick’ consumers. Look for ones without extra fees related to equipment, installation, or activation.
