I arranged for the Medical Guardian Alert system for my 80 year old mother. Your pricing is great and the service has been excellent. The set up was so easy. Thank you for giving me the piece of mind that my mother can receive help with the push of one button. She is also very happy with the system. Thank you, Tammy L. McClellan

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.

I would've awarded 5 stars if the charging base were a bit less particular about how the mobile device is placed in it. Charging hasn't always succeeded.

Ordered this for my mom who is 72 and couldn't be more happy with the service. She's accidentally hit the alert buttons and within seconds she's received phone calls from Bay Alarm, the fire department and/or police. We know that it works!! Thanks Bay Alarm, highly recommend!

I called for some information for my mom. I was not intending to sign up. Robin was so good at informing me about all the services. I ended up paying for a full year and insurance by the time we hung up. He took his time and never rushed me. He answered all my questions no matter how many times I asked the same question. He is excellent at his job. I never looked anywhere else.
