Fall Alert Your Guide to Medical Alerts

Comparing Fall Alert Devices

There is so much information on the internet about these fall alert devices! There is no shortage of resources available to you to use during your search. There may even be too much info out there! A great way to start looking into a company is by looking up complaints and reviews for them. This is a great way to see what previous customers are saying. And then you can compare what you’ve learned with the other fall alert companies you are thinking about. Generally I take everything I read with a grain of salt. But if you are hearing the same negative thing over and over again – that’s a good reason to be concerned.

The best way to compare fall alert devices: talk to each company you are interested in!

Once you have a short list of medical alert services that you like. Call them! Good companies make it easy on you to get all the information that you need. Actually speaking to a representative also allows you to get a good sense of the company and their fall alert devices. Chances are the person you are speaking to is in the customer service office and is the same person that will be helping you with billing or service issues once you are a customer.

Here are some important things to consider while speaking to different fall alert devices companies:

  • Customer Service! – Simply the most important part of any service.
  • Time Commitments – can and should be avoided!
  • Quality of the monitoring center – focus on quality rather than which company owns their own.
  • Price – will your price change in the future? Is the price listed just a special?
  • Installation or Set-Up Fees? – These are easy to plug in – you can easily do it yourself.
  • Buying the equipment? – Buying equipment won’t save you money. You will have reoccurring monitoring fees regardless.
  • Secondary Devices – Thinking about order fall detection or a mobile device? Get all the facts first!

I always recommend avoiding companies that use high pressured sales tactics. Fast talking salespeople are an unpleasant part of any industry. If someone is asking for your credit card repeatedly, it’s a good sign that it’s time to find a different company. The right company is out there!
