We have had LifeFone for our Mom for a few years now. She's only had to use it once, and it worked very well - just as advertised. I would highly recommend this service.

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.

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

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.

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.
