South Dakota Medical Alert Systems

South Dakota

In South Dakota you will find that every city has the feel of a friendly small town. The rolling plains give way to the stunning Black Hills National Forest. Black Hills is home to two historical monuments carved right into immense granite peaks. There is Mt. Rushmore, the iconic portrayal of four U.S. presidents, and Crazy Horse Memorial, a long-in-progress tribute to the Native American tribal leader of Oglala Lakota. Take a trip south to see the awe-inspiring spires and deep gorges of the badlands.

At Alert1, we want you to be able to live your golden years how you want. With our Fall Detection system by your side, you will be protected. To learn more about how medical alert systems can keep you safe, call us at 866-581-4540. For any other aging in place questions contact your local Area Agency on Aging listed below. 

What Is A Medical Alert System?

At Alert1, our medical alert systems can give you protection to continue doing the activities you love. A medical alert system is a button you wear around your neck or around your wrist. If you need help, simply press the button to get help.

When you press your help button, you will be connected directly to the Alert1 Command Center. A trained operator will come on the line to speak with you. If you need help, they can send you personalized responders. When you sign up, you will create your Circle of Care - your list of responders. You can call whomever you need in an emergency, including 911, your neighbor, or your family. We will stay on the line with you until they arrive so that you always have a calming and caring person with you.
