Types of Medical Alert Systems

You’ve probably seen dozens of commercials for medical alert systems. But did you know that there are different kinds?

There are two main types of alert systems: monitored and un-monitored. Both systems involve a ‘panic’ button that the wearer presses in an emergency, that button sends a signal to a box in the house which is connected to a phone line. With monitored systems, the button triggers a call to a live operator, who will speak directly with the wearer. The operator can also call friends, family members or even 911.

An unmonitored system does not call an operator, instead it is programmed to call a series of phone numbers selected by the user. It will automatically call each number until someone answers, and then it will play a recorded message. You can program the last number on the list to be 911.

There are also medical alert systems that are mobile, and can work outside the home. These devices are usually pendant sized, can fit in the palm of your hand and work like little cell phones. They are equipped with that same button, which will call a live operator. A bonus to this kind of system is that is it also a GPS, so the operator would be able to find the wearer’s location. This can be very helpful for emergencies outside the home.

Before buying a medical alter system, make sure to do your research and keep your loved one’s lifestyle in mind.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
