Life Alert® Alternatives – Alert1 Delivers Affordability & Reliability
Older adults may face a host of challenges unique to senior
citizens: disability, chronic illness or weakened physical strength can make it
tough for seniors to live on their own. But for people who prefer to continue
living independently, installing medical alert systems can provide the extra assistance they need to live safely in the homes they love.
This type of system puts the ability to get the right
emergency assistance any time of the day or night literally into the hands of
seniors. Discreet wearable help buttons
connect wirelessly to medical alarm base systems that can send alarms to a
monitoring center which will quickly pick up the call, evaluate the situation,
and dispatch the right type of responders.
Commitment to Value
While other Life Alert® alternatives
require installation and activation fees, activation for Alert1 is free, and the
system can be installed in three easy steps. And with monthly, quarterly
and annual service plans, Alert1 provides older adults and their families with the
flexibility to choose emergency monitoring services that meet their unique
circumstances. Because Alert1 is committed to giving their customers the
coverage they and their families need, emergency monitoring and a help button
for a spouse is also free of charge.
Commitment to Security
When you need to call emergency services, time is of the
essence. That’s why Alert1 has two fully staffed and duplicated emergency
response centers that are ready to take your calls 24 hours a day, seven days a
week; no matter when you contact our response centers, you’ll get prompt
service and emergency personnel will be called to your home promptly. Other alternatives to Life Alert® have only a
single call center, or have not fully duplicated their call centers, leaving
single points of failure that might cause their emergency monitoring service to go off line.
Accessories for Extra Security
Alert1’s products can also give you more freedom within your
home. In addition to medical alarm systems and help buttons to wear around the neck or wrist, there are optional accessories you should
consider to make the system work best for you or your family member
Although Alert1 recommends that you always wear your help
button, we also offer a wall mounted call buttons in case the subscriber has an emergency when not wearng the button. The wall mounted button can be placed in a bedroom or kitchen—places where falls and other
accidents tend to be more common. Additionally, a voice extender can enable you to
communicate more easily with the operator via your system throughout
very large or multi-story homes. A lock box can store your house key
safely outside of your home to allow emergency personnel to enter your home
without breaking windows or doors when help is needed. Finally, our Medready
medical dispenser helps reduce missed or too many pills—an essential for older
adults who must follow complicated instructions to take their medications
The ability to live independently and safely is important
for older adults, and with Alert1, maintaining independence is possible. Alert1
is committed to our customers, and dedicated to helping make their lives easier
through medical alert system alternatives that deliver value and safety.
