    Let’s get started
  • How do medical alert systems work?

    Medical alert systems start with a push of your help button. The button communicates with a medical alert console located somewhere in your home and connected with your telephone line. The medical alert console places a call to a 24/7 monitoring center. The medical alert system user will then communicate with the operator at the monitoring center. The monitoring center operator will talk to the user and will, if needed, contact Emergency Services and a predetermined list of emergency contacts, such as neighbors and loved ones.
