Choosing a service provider
Looking for a Medical Alert System Provider
It's important to choose a provider who is prepared to support your needs at every step. At Medical Guardian, we're proud to have offered superior support, products and emergency monitoring since 2006.
Medical Guardian offers more freedom for less money when compared to assisted living costs. "Budget-friendly" systems often contain hidden fees or long-term contracts, resulting in poor service during an emergency — when a person is most at risk.
Buying a medical alert device is only the beginning of the relationship. A provider should remain accessible long after the sale is finalized. Our in-house team of Customer Care Specialists is dedicated to providing friendly, knowledgeable assistance.
Monitoring centers are the heart of medical alert systems. Our US-based monitoring center is certified by the highest industry standards and staffed 24/7 by trained emergency professionals.
At-home alert systems require installation, which not every company supports. Our Customer Care Specialists guide you step-by-step. Our easy-to-follow video tutorials help you install on your own.
A medical alert system should fit seamlessly into your lifestyle. While some companies offer only one or two products, Medical Guardian has six unique devices to assure you'll be completely satisfied.
Consider third-party reviews when researching a medical alert system. We're proud to say that Medical Guardian is the #1 rated medical alert company across leading independent review websites.

Being protected by Medical Guardian is great comfort to my family and myself. I have it set up so they call my daughter first who lives only 2 blocks away.

I like how easy it was to set up. I was walked through the process and never felt rushed while on the phone.
Since I live alone it's comforting to know that should I need assistance, all I have to do is press one button and Medical Guardian will send help.
Reliable, friendly staff and very helpful. Simple equipment to work and operate.
Called ambulance with just a press of the button before family knew there was a problem.
