Bay Alarm Medical Alert review

We used Bay Alarm Medical Alert for our 93 year old mother. She had to use them once, and they were excellent in their response to her and in notifying family members. It was so easy to sign up, everything online. She has since moved to assisted living, but cancellation was easy. I mistakenly returned her phone with their equipment. They returned it immediately. Everyone we came into contact with at Bay Alarm was pleasant, helpful and responsive. Highly recommended.

My 91-year-old mom fell at five in the morning and broke her wrist. Fortunately, she was wearing her alarm and pushed the button. Bay Alarm Medical phoned me. I went to her house to check on her, and when I called 911, I was told they were already on the way. They had all the information I had submitted to Bay Alarm Medical, so they knew how to get to her house and which one it was. (Not as easy as it sounds.) While one hopes no one will ever fall, I have to say that everything went exactly as it was supposed to. Bay Alarm Medical was a step ahead of me the whole way. Thank you, Bay Alarm Medical! I did a lot of research before deciding on a medical alert company, and Bay Alarm Medical had raves. I now know why.

It looks like the "Fine Print" section describes things a little differently from what I experienced with ADT. No Activation Fee, Month-to-Month Agreement - with better pricing if you are an existing ADT customer, and if you are in a position to pay quarterly or annually. They do have a "Forever Rate" price lock on their monitoring fee - which is great! No hidden costs. Wonderful people at the call center - very kind, compassionate and caring! I would choose ADT over any other brand, any day of the week!
