About the owners

Jeff and Rick, the owners of MEDICAL ALERT SOLUTIONS INC., were born and raised in Northeastern, Indiana. This is where they have raised their families. Where they’re involved in the local community and where their kids are now raising their families. Jeff and Rick have a commitment to provide peace-of-mind for the independence of elderly and medically at-risk patients that can’t be achieved from some remote office that doesn’t know our community or our midwest values.

MEDICAL ALERT SOLUTIONS, INC. has teamed up with the leading provider of Emergency Response Systems in North America. Lifeline created the emergency medical alert industry back in the 1970’s and has continued to be the leading innovator of the industry ever since.

With state-of-the-art communicator technology and high-tech monitoring centers, we believe Companion Medical Alert provides the best equipment, quicker response times and more reliability with greater security and assurance than any other medical alert company.
