8/17/15 1:27pm | Considering many modern
seniors keep active throughout their golden years, Alert1 gets this
question a lot. (Although it’s not always the grocery store. Sometimes it’s
“taking a walk”, “visiting my friend” or “driving somewhere”.) Did you know about today’s senior friendly
alternatives where you can opt to have groceries delivered to
your doorstep? That being said, in this article we want to highlight the
added protection Alert1 members receive while on the go. While the senior medical
alert systems of many other companies do not offer protection outside the
home, Alert1 does! Our mobile medical alert system can give you the protection you want
both inside and outside your home 24 hours a day.
What is the Kelsi Mobile Medical Alert System?
Mobile Medical Alert consists of a small black pendant that weighs about an
ounce. It is very similar to Alert1’s other senior medical
alert systems and gets you help with just one push of a button and connects
to 24 our emergency monitoring station via cellular networks. This is why the
medical alert system works everywhere you want to go. That means you get
protection at home, on the way to the grocery store, and at the grocery store
(or anywhere else for that matter). Whenever you need help, press the button at
the center of the black pendant. Once you do so, you will open 2-way
communication with the Alert1 Command Center.
For those wondering about the
coverage of the Kelsi mobile
medical alert, don’t worry! It’s nationwide! That is because our carrier is
T-Mobile, one of the biggest and most widespread national carriers in the
As the Kelsi mobile medical alert
system consists of the Kelsi pendant, you don’t have to setup anything! You
also don’t have to worry about purchasing any extra cellular contracts for the
Kelsi mobile medical alert. We take care of all that for you and it’s included
in your plan. We even give you unlimited button pushes and talk time with our
How Does the Kelsi Mobile Medical Alert Work During Emergencies?
mobile medical alert works very similarly to our other medical alert systems
during an emergency. When you need help, press the emergency call button to call for help. Once you do, the
Kelsi contacts the Alert1 Command Center and we get you help by calling people
in your Circle of Care. What is the Circle of
Care? The Circle of Care consists of the people you want to assist you during
an emergency. It also includes the ones you want to notify when you have an
As it is easier to understand
things through examples, let’s look at Anne from the swampy span of Southern
Florida. Anne has always been the foodie in her house. Thus, Anne insists that
she gets the local fresh produce from the small supermarket which doesn’t
deliver. As Anne never learned to drive, she always walks to the grocery store.
Now Anne had a bad fall a few months ago, so she got a senior medical
alert system from Alert1. And as Anne is extremely active and goes to the
supermarket at least twice a week, Anne decided to get the Kelsi mobile medical
alert so she could take it with her everywhere. While getting her system, she
had her Circle
of Care setup to contact:
- Call Anise, her niece (to respond)
- Call Belinda, her daughter (to be notified)
- Call Brett, her son-in-law (to be notified)
While at her local grocery store, Anne tripped over some
oranges grown in California while choosing between some local, colorful Florida
chard. Anne quickly pressed her emergency call button on her Kelsi. The Alert1
command center representative asked Anne where she was and called her niece
Anise to assist her.
What Happens When I Fall On My Way to the Grocery Store and Don’t Know Where I Am?
Luckily, Alert1 has you covered
there! The Kelsi uses the 911
emergency GPS technology to find where you are within two meters during an emergency.
When this happens, we can have 911 as your emergency responder to make sure
that you quickly get the help you need. However, we will also contact your
Circle of Care to let them know.
Where ever you go, in the local
supermarket or in a different state, you will be in good hands with the Kelsi mobile
medical alert. It’s light and durable pendant along with its nationwide
coverage allows you to live life with freedom and protection. And when you have
an emergency, we will get you help no matter where you are.
