What is Freedom Alert?
If you’re worried about your parent living on their own, especially if they have medical conditions, LogicMark’s Freedom Alert Emergency Alert System is a great way to ease your worries and make sure that your parents are never truly alone. Conversely, if you’re a senior, Freedom Alert is a good, easy-to-use companion that keeps you safe, while you enjoy the perks of living independently.
Because it’s made for senior users, Freedom Alert is very straight forward. It comes with a button that seniors can press when they’re in distress. The signal can either go straight to 911 or contact a couple family members before that. You can program numbers of your children, spouse and even your neighbor who can come straight to you in cases of emergency.
You are only able to program up to four numbers, so make sure that you out numbers of people that you know live close by or can call someone to check on you. However, unlike other emergency systems, you can actually talk into the pendant. You can describe what happened or what your state is, so the person on the other end can respond accordingly.
Benefits of Freedom Alert
Easy to use
This is an assistive technology that functions a lot like a phone but has features that specifically cater to an older person’s needs. For example, most seniors find the many functions of mobile phones confusing. In an emergency situation, it might be hard to use it. Freedom Alert streamlines those features into one button. Press that, and it will directly reach out to the people you’ve programmed it to call.

That means that you can wear it around the house, while you’re doing chores in the kitchen or going down the stairs. You can even add a wall mount in close to the shower, so you can reach it in case something happens. It’s also water resistant, so you don’t have to worry about moisture exposure when you take it with you to the bathroom.
Not like other emergency systems on the market, this functions more like a mini mobile phone, minus all the confusing button and breakable screens. Instead of just being able to press the distress button, you can talk into the pendant and tell the person on the other side what happened, how you are and all the help you need. This saves them valuable time, and they can figure out what they can do on the way to you. This can be a life-saving addition in case you’re bleeding or suffered a fracture.
