Medical Care Alert’s GPS systems are a great choice, especially if you’re looking for an all-in-one system that offers fall detection. They also offer multiple ways for you to save that include no equipment fees, no activation fees, with no long-term contracts to sign.
Falling is a major concern for many seniors. Unfortunately, pushing the button on your medical alert device is difficult, if not nearly impossible, if you’ve taken a fall, which is why so many seniors turn to fall protection.
If you choose the Home & Away Elite service from Medical Care Alert, you can enjoy GPS tracking, fall detection, and dependable two-way communication in one small, water resistant pendant.
- Buying experience
If you’re ready to make a purchase, buying a system online is fairly easy, and the purchasing process makes it easy to choose between the traditional Home & Away Elite system or the Home & Away Elite system with Fall Detection, just as long as you actually begin the purchasing process. If you want to talk to a customer service representative, you can call in; they are extremely helpful and there are no high-pressure sales. They also make it easy to request a free brochure by including a custom form on each system’s page.
Equipment is pretty basic with their Home & Away Elite system. Equipment includes the GPS emergency button device, as well as the charging cradle. There is no need for additional wrist or neck pendants because the device weighs under two ounces and a leather carrying case is provided with your purchase.
Medical Care Alert’s GPS systems utilize AT&T’s wireless network, so the only cord you have to worry about is the cord that plugs into the outlet in your wall. The AT&T Wireless communication is built into the pendant, so no cell phone is required to use the system.
Because there is very little equipment, setup is extremely easy. All you have to do is plug the charging cradle into the wall and charge the GPS device in the cradle.

Medical Care Alert also has the closest responders listed with your file so you can rest assured that help will arrive quickly. Neighbors, family members, loved ones, and caregivers on your account will also be notified of the situation.
