Medical Alert Pendants - Page 2

It’s no secret: Medical alert pendant usage is on the rise. Between the heightened demand for alert systems and an increasingly mobile elderly population, transportable and convenient medical alert devices are becoming necessary.

But with increased need comes an ever-growing list of options – and rising costs. Dozens of providers now offer medical alert pendants, but not all created equal. We believe our pendants are the best in the industry, but it’s still helpful to compare fees, devices, and add-on services. We created a comparison articles to show you how Alert1 stands up to the competition. We hope this offers enough clarity to make a confident, informed decision.

Below, you’ll find a comparison grid of other companies that offer medical alert pendants. These providers have a variety of products and service options, but you’ll see that Alert1’s offerings are among the most affordable, flexible, and customer-oriented. Whether you’re looking for an emergency call pendant for elderly relatives or exploring options for yourself, Alert1 has the best medical alert pendants available.

Comparing Medical Alert Devices

Alert1 devices are among the best in the industry, but we recognize that choosing a device is a big decision, especially when purchasing an alert pendant for seniors. Customers want to gather all available information to make smart, informed decisions. For medical alarm pendants, we know buyers are looking to compare costs, contract terms, customer service, and device accessibility.

Alert1 pendants are neither the cheapest nor most expensive option. We offer high-quality products and incomparable service, and we know that many alert pendant users have an eye toward budget considerations. This is why we don’t charge a premium. With us, you’ll always receive the best-possible technology at fair prices.

Why Choose Alert1 Medical Alert Pendants

Aside from price, potential customers may not know what to look for in an alert pendant. We’ve laid out some of the most important factors to consider, as well as how Alert1 has adapted to meet those needs.

Consideration #1: Lifestyle. We know that no senior lifestyle is exactly the same. Some medical alert system users are very active, enjoying frequent excursions outside of the house. Others may have lifestyles that don’t allow for such trips. Regardless of where you fall on this spectrum, know that Alert1 has an alert pendant for you. Some options, like the device provided in our In-the-Home set up, have no additional fees and are perfect for at-home use. Others, like the Kelsi unit or fall alert pendant, have an additional cost but work well on the go. Nobody should have to compromise on their emergency response pendant. No matter your needs or budget, we’re sure to have an option to fit into your lifestyle.

Consideration #2: Hidden costs. Many companies who provide emergency pendants for seniors do so without providing all available information. The most important information gap? Total cost. Most systems come with hidden fees, like a materials cost or an added premium for per-month subscriptions. While many Alert1 pendants have an added fee, we take care to put this information in a very visible spot on each product page. We never want an alert pendant user to receive a surprise bill, and with Alert1, you never will.

Consideration #3: Customer service. Alarm pendants are available in a range of prices, technologies, and abilities. But across all sections of the industry, customer service is an ever-present concern. Most medical alert system users are older and tend to be less tech savvy, so a lack of customer service will impact the device’s effectiveness. Know that our customer service department understands our user demographic and will always treat callers with patience and respect. Plus, Alert1 has been ThayerCertified, which means we provide safe and fair working conditions for all employees. Our monitoring center is also TMA5 Diamond Certified, which means our operators undergo a rigorous training program to ensure the highest quality service. 

How to Choose Your Medical Alert Pendant

Choosing an alert pendant is never an easy task. As we’ve demonstrated above, buyers have nearly endless options, each claiming to be more affordable and effective than the last. To help you out, we’ve created a list of questions you should answer before choosing a device.

  • For whom is the pendant intended? Medical alert pendants for seniors may require a different service than, say, a seizure alert pendant.
  • Where do you plan to use the pendant? Many medical alert pendants for the elderly are only useful inside the house.
  • What is your budget? Think about how much you are willing to spend per month, as well as whether an alert pendant would put you over your comfortable spending threshold.
  • What additional features are important to you? Alert1 pendants, for example, are compatible with pacemakers, and some are showerproof, have a 30-day battery life, and include fall detection.

The pendants from Alert1 are a great option for many medical alert users. Consider adding any of our products to your health maintenance plan. With us, you’ll be safer, more secure, and comfortable knowing exactly what your money pays for.
