"As of
2014 I had signed up my parents for
. At the time my father was alive and I saw this on their website. They" presented to me that it was the size of an answering machine but it was larger so I requested a necklace but instead received a wristband. After that my father started getting ill so we opened up package and noticed it was not what we ordered so I called to get this returned. I called twice to finally get a shipping label to return items since was not correct. After my father passed away my mother started getting ill and was falling. I received a sales call from
regarding this and we had several calls because the falling alert was not working for my mother. Every time I called I was talking to numerous people per phone calls as well as being put on hold numerous times. The technical department promised to call and help with this but no one called me back or emailed me back. I called the sales rep and he said he would email the technical help dept. I was becoming frustrated because no one would help me. SO I called and told them I was going to cancel. They would not cancel and are still charging my discover card so had to dispute on my credit card. Through a 3 way call with
and discover,
said they were not charging my credit card but they did.
gave us another number to call about the credit card charges. The company is continuing to try and charge my credit card. My bank has to put a block on them to stop using my credit card without my permission.

Medical alert systems

A medical alert system is an electronic device that provides monitoring services for independently living elderly or disabled people. In an emergency, they can connect to the provider's response center, which can summon help.

A medical alert system is a necessity for anyone living alone who may need help – whether it's for a fall, illness, stroke, fire or any other reason, says Stapp. (Photo courtesy of Medical Care Alert)

My parents are resistant to new things and to strange people in their house. But by telephone, they managed to complete the testing and placing of the device quite smoothly. Great service working with difficult customers!

I signed up for the Medical Alert system by
Chicago Medical Alert Systems Provider Name Locked
. Once I was signed up he said he was going to send a contract and walk me through the system.
Chicago Medical Alert Systems Provider Name Locked
sent me my machine and I could not get ahold of him to learn how to use it. I never received the contract. They would not discuss automatic renewals even though I do not have a contract with them. They have no recourse if you have any problems. The only thing they said they could do was extend the contract.

I have the Gaudian Home Medical Alert System. It works really well and I feel very comfortable wearing it! I've tested it several times and even set it off by accident a couple of time and it worked perfectly.

Had it for almost two years, and never had to use it in an emergency, but tested it and that went fine. When I needed to end the contract because mom moved to assisted living, I was told to send everything back in the original packaging on my own expense and only then would I get a refund of unused months. Well, my mom had lost one of the monitors which is a cheap plastic transmitter, and they charged me enormously for it. Just BE AWARE you need to keep everything and send it back at your own expense and insured for $350.00. If you don't they will charge you $350.00. I spent $700.00 for this, and they were not even nice about it when I questioned it. Won't use them again.

On January 1, 2015, we contacted
Chicago Medical Alert Systems Provider Name Locked
to receive service due to recent falls. We were given a monthly quote, but never notified that the total amount would be taken upfront for the whole year ($431.40). In addition, we were told that we could terminate services at any time. From conversation with sales person, we were given the impression that any money would be refunded upon cancelation. The system did not work from the beginning. We had chosen the system with fall sensor (POM), but it went off with little movement. We called to cancel, but they said they would send us another sensor. When the replacement arrived, we decided to discontinue the sensor and requested to be replaced with regular alert. The fall sensor was discontinued prior to 30 days, but never received reimbursement (for the fall sensor you pay $5.00 more a month). The regular system worked until 2/24/15 when it failed a second time. We decided to discontinue the service all together. The sales person stated that the money would not be refunded because it was more than 30 days since service began. However, the system did not work right from the beginning. It is our belief that this company deceive the elderly for financial gains.
