Pinpoint the Medical Alert for Your Needs

Use the Senior Home Central exclusive search tool to find the right medical alert for your specific situation. Start selecting features or scoll below for instructions.

Each checkbox narrows down the choices. If you choose Mobile, you will get back only alerts that work on cellular networks. If you then choose Landline, the list will narrow to only those medical alerts that work on Mobile OR on a Landline.

Call Box: A box connected to your home landline that can hear your activation from hundreds of feet away.

Landline: An alert that communicates with operators over your home landline.

Home Cellular: An alert that communicates with operators over the alert company’s cellular connection.

Home Signal Pendant: An alert that allows you to wear your button on a pendant around your neck. Pendants are the best devices for fall detection. They are more accurate than wrist-based buttons for accurately detecting falling motion.

Home Fall Detection: An alert device that contains a gyroscope and computer to detect falls. When such a device is triggered, it calls the operations center on your behalf. For false alerts and if you’re OK, you can cancel the call for help. If you can’t access your device, the software assumes you are hurt and calls for help.

Mobile: An alert that works away from home. All mobile alerts work at home, too, so long as you have cellular service. These devices use the alert company’s cellular phone connection.

Mobile Signal Pendant: An alert that allows you to contact the operations center from a pendant you wear around your neck, and that communicates over a cellular network.

Mobile Wrist Communication: An alert that allows you to contact the operations center from a wrist-based button, and that communicates over a cellular network.

Mobile Communication Pendant: A pendant that allows you to voice chat with the operations center over a cellular connection.

Mobile Fall Detection: A pendant with a gyroscope and computer that detects falling motion and calls for help if it detects a fall.

Mobile Location Detection: An alert with GPS, WiFi and/or Bluetooth tracking technology that allows your care circle to find you on an alert company map.

MobileHelp: A major brand in medical alerts.

Alert1: A major brand in medical alerts.
