services require multi-year commitments that prevent you from determining the
course of care that you need. That can be especially difficult if you determine

alert companies don’t take into account the limitations and exceptions that
come with life-altering circumstances. You or loved ones will end up with a
hefty bill to pay if you’re not in need of their service any longer.

they choose our mobile alert
button they’ll need to sign and buy an additional cellular contract. That's
not true! Alert1

hidden fees or entered into long-term commitments. We manage all of that so you
