Hi. I’m Joe Thoron, and I built this site to help YOU make a good decision about what medical alert system to buy.
Finding the right medical alert can seem overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be.
Start with my quick 2-question survey. It’s the fastest way to get you right to the information you need.
Since 2009 I’ve helped hundreds and hundreds of people just like you buy the right medical alert.
Here are two examples:
“I am so grateful for the work you do. I am a full-time caregiver for my mom. The home health nurse said they’d like her to get a medical alert of some sort. I find your website and emails the most INCREDIBLE help to me in deciding! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your opinions, your research and the amazing peace of mind you give to people like me. I just do not have time to do the necessary research. Thank you does not even begin to express my appreciation, Joe.” (Nancy)
“You helped us choose an alert system that works great and saves us lots of money. I am recently retired and was looking for ways to cut our cost of living. We got the alert system for my husband that hooks up to our landline and he wears at all times. No monthly fee! I am home with him most of the time but have that peace of mind when I go out. I am so glad you contacted me so I could thank you.” (Judy)
Take the survey. It’s the quickest way to get you right to the information that will help you the most.
Of course, if you’re the kind of person who loves doing research, I’ve got pages and pages of information for you.
But if you’re on the opposite end of the spectrum and just want the shortest short-cut available, here it is:
For most people, the Medipendant is the best combination of features and price (and it’s even sweeter with the Medipendant coupon code, “elderly medical”). Read more about the Medipendant.
Here are a few other places to start:

- Go through my free “wizard” to help you choose a unit. This is a previous and more complicated version of my two-question survey.

Here’s a video introduction to this website. (Yes, I need to update it!)

Why I built this site
It’s personal, really. One night when my grandmother was 96 years old, she tripped on the stairs inside her house. She fell to the landing and broke her hip. She couldn’t crawl to a telephone. She lay there until after lunch the next day, when a friend came by to visit.
If she had been wearing a medical alert she could have pushed a button and summoned help. An ambulance could have been at her door ten minutes later. She would have been spared those long hours of suffering, and maybe she would have had a better outcome and not spent the remaining 5 years of her life in assisted living.
I built this site because I don’t want you, or someone you love, to have to go through the same situation. I want to help cut through the confusion so you can make a good decision and buy the right system to protect yourself or your loved one. See more on the “about” page.
