LifeFone Medical Alert review
This is amazing. They call right away when I've fallen. They are always polite and kind. They thoroughly explained that they already contacted the ambulance and they called my family too. Super product with superior staff.

Medical Guardian Medical Alerts review
I prefer to wear the alarm using the belt clip, rather than around my neck. It will not stay clipped. Very poorly made. Called company to tell this. Customer service rep said , "I've never had anyone else who wore it on belt." Really ? C'mon ! Company answers alarm calls quickly.

Medical Guardian Medical Alerts review
I bought our Medical Guardian service plan a number of months ago. This system is approved as being adequate supervision of the person you are charged with caring for. The necklace is easy to put on and remove with magnetic closure in back. An extra bonus is that I myself was included on the plan. Very satisfied with our plan.

We are very pleased with the Lifefone system and service. I would highly recommend this system to anyone who needs a medical alert monitoring system.

LifeFone Medical Alert review
We've had Lifefone for my mother for the past few years. The response time was very quick, and though I'm not someone who reviews products often, I can say we are very pleased with this product which works as advertised, and also with the kind customer service there. I trust we are in good hands with this. This is the type of product you hope you won't need, but when you do its important to know how well it works.

Medical Guardian Medical Alerts review
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.
