You can also choose to keep your profile updated with important medical information and emergency contacts so Medical Guardian's trained support personnel can access to medical information and the right contacts to get in touch with if needed.
Stand-out features of the home systems include temperature display and a 30+ hour backup battery life, and GPS technology on mobile solutions for unlimited location detection range.

All solutions come with a lifetime warranty and are completely waterproof.
Medical Guardian Installation Process
Installation is as simple as plugging in your phone or any electrical item. The landline Classic Guardian will need to be plugged into a phone socket as well as a wall outlet, while the Home Guardian only needs an electrical outlet. Once you’ve done this, simply press the help button to test the device. The Mobile Guardian will come set up, and with wristbands or necklaces already synced. You can also wear the help button on a belt if you prefer. When you press the button, you will be immediately connected to a trained operative through a two-way radio.
The pendant or wristband is entirely waterproof and portable, so you can access help whenever you need. You can also request extra pendants for more family members at $2.99 per month per pendant.
How much does Medical Guardian cost?
*Last updated March 2022
Medical Guardian has a few options for medical alert systems and markets them all based on what you’re looking for. The low-cost option is the Classic Guardian, which is a land-line-based system. It costs $29.95 per month and comes with a 32-hour backup battery and an incredible 1,300-foot range, making it suitable for large properties and gardens.
Home 2.0 is the most popular solution at $34.95 per month, and it does not rely on a landline connection. It has a slightly longer range and is big enough for most houses and gardens at 1,400 feet.
Both Mobile 2.0 and Mini Guardian are wearable devices that run on Verizon 4G helping you stay connected in case of emergencies. It's important to keep in mind that unless you purchase a protection plan for $6.99 per month, you will be charged fees for lost or damaged equipment.

Self-setup is hassle-free with Medical Guardian. Your equipment can be shipped either standard in 10 working days, or quicker on request (for an additional fee) and comes with simple instructions for set up.

Industry-leading support along with great risk assessment make Medical Guardian the likely solution for your needs.
