ResponseNow Is Worth A Look.
There are dozens of medical alert systems on the market today, and for good reason, as the demand for such devices is high. Why? According to Gareth Mahon, CEO of The Care Side, a home care and nursing service for the elderly and disabled in Australia, “They offer peace of mind when the caregiver can’t be monitoring their loved one personally 24/7.”
But how do you know which type of device or brand is the best fit for your loved one’s needs?
Our expert Aging in Place team conducted an in-depth medical alert system review on a newer brand—ResponseNow. Here’s what we found.
ResponseNow Medical Alert System Overview
ResponseNow, founded in 2002, offers a lot of what the more recognizable brands of personal emergency response system companies offer, such as 24/7 monitoring and both in-home and mobile devices. Monthly monitoring fees are also more affordable compared with a lot of other products in the market. Plus, those fees are backed by a lifetime price guarantee, which means you can rest assured that your monthly cost will not go up as long as you use the device. That’s especially an ideal situation for people on fixed incomes. Even better news is that the company has a 30-day money back guarantee and doesn’t require you to sign any long-term contracts.
ResponseNow has a single in-the-home unit that requires a landline. It also offers a mobile device and a recently upgraded version of the mobile device that includes fall detection and GPS tracking. Overall, ResponseNow has fewer bells and whistles compared to its competitors. For example, there’s no caregiver online portal or mobile app, and add-ons are limited. However, if you are looking for a good, basic medical alert system, you can’t go wrong with ResponseNow.
