GetSafe stands out from other medical alert providers because their easy-to-use home equipment eliminates the need for seniors to wear or carry devices while they’re at home, but they still offer wearable and trackable devices for those on the go. Their devices are equipped with 24/7 assistance with the press of a button, voice commands or simply pulling a lanyard.

Place these voice-activated buttons anywhere around the home where there are higher risks of falls or accidents. The buttons are wireless, small and water resistant to be placed in the kitchen, bathroom or other areas. If there’s an emergency, simply pull the cord or say “call 9-1-1.” You can also pull the built-in cord to call for help, but it can be removed if your loved ones won’t need it.
This cellular connected button uses AT&T’s 4G LTE network to call for medical help whether you’re at home or on the go. The help button is water resistant and includes adjustable two-way audio and a fall detection option. This help button also gives caregivers the power to check on their loved ones via their smartphone and the GetSafe mobile app. It’s battery-powered with 120 hours of battery life and automatic low-battery alerts.
If you’re not a fan of a wearable medical alert, simply install GetSafe wall buttons throughout the home to call for medical assistance at any time.
