When you press the button on The Care Alarm Company’s device, you’re immediately connected to a live agent trained in emergency medical response. They’ll quickly inform emergency services of your location, preferred hospital, and any health conditions or past surgeries that could affect emergency care.
Not only does The Care Alarm Company stay on the line with you until help arrives, but we also notify your loved ones about the situation. Our emergency response center is equipped to handle non-medical emergencies too, such as fires or break-ins, with the utmost professionalism and respect.
Without our device, you’d need to find a phone, dial 911, and explain your situation from scratch. 911 operators won’t have your medical history readily available, nor will they contact your family for you.
Absolutely. Our traditional in-home unit covers your home and extends up to 800 feet from the base unit.
We recommend our lockbox add-on. It’s a sturdy steel box holding your key, accessible via a four-digit code you choose. If paramedics need to enter, our Monitoring Center Operator gives them the code, allowing quick, safe access without damaging your property. The lockbox is available for purchase or as a monthly rental.

Our service is tailored to each individual’s needs. For those mostly homebound, we recommend our in-home unit, compatible with VOIP, DSL, and various cable modems. We also offer a cellular in-home unit for those without a landline.
For active individuals, our Mobile Help Devices provide protection across the United States, both inside and outside the home.
Our in-home units (landline and cellular) come with a lightweight, waterproof button worn around the neck or wrist. It covers your entire home, yard, and hallways and is safe for use in baths, showers, and pools. Pressing the button connects you to our base unit for two-way communication. If you can’t respond, we follow your pre-set emergency plan and stay on the line until help arrives.
Our Mobile Help Devices offer similar protection and are water-resistant. They include two-way communication and location tracking. If you can’t respond, we follow your emergency plan.
