GreatCall Splash with 5Star – Senior Medical Alert Systems – Device vs. Mobile
GreatCall® brings the convenience of the senior medical alert system,
5Star® Service, to your smartphone, and is also available on the
single-button device, the GreatCall Splash!
For the elderly, a senior medical alert system can equate to self-reliance and confidence.
With the assistance of a senior alert device, medical conditions or increased anxiety
no longer need to bind individuals to their homes or make them dependent on the
help of others. Family members and friends can feel secure in the fact that you
are safe and connected to any help you may need.
GreatCall, the company behind the original Jitterbug senior-friendly, big-button
cell phone, provides the senior alert system, 5Star. Providing immediate access
and two-way communication with NAED Certified Agents, 5Star allows self-confident
independence and freedom for seniors. Powered by the country’s largest and most
reliable wireless service, The GreatCall Splash senior medical alert device has
nationwide coverage. Features like patented GPS technology and online locator services
provide seniors a wider range of protection and autonomy. 5Star Agents are able
to confirm your location, evaluate the situation and connect to police or medical
help, if needed, as well as contact friends or family members. Help is never more
than one button push away.
In an effort to increase accessibility, GreatCall has taken the senior alert system
even farther by introducing the 5Star mobile app for smartphones.
The GreatCall Splash Device
One way to access the award-winning 5Star Service is with the compact Splash device.
Small enough to clip on a belt or attach to a key chain, the Splash is unobtrusive,
light, and extremely easy to use. The senior alert device has a single button, that
when pressed, will instantly connect to a 5Star Agent. The Splash device is equipped
with a powerful two-way speaker and microphone that allows for easy and clear communication.
The patented GPS technology is built in, sending a continuous signal pinning your
location. Children or grandchildren could easily use this user-friendly device.
The 5Star Mobile App
Another access point to the prestigious 5Star Service is through a smartphone, available
for both iPhone and Android operating systems. The predominance of the smartphone
continues to grow, and their possible applications seem to multiply exponentially.
While you can clutter your phone with useless apps, the 5Star app is one that could
save your life.
If you already have a smartphone, and do not require a separate device, purchasing
the 5Star application for your smartphone will still provide the same features and
benefits of 5Star Service. When you need help, instead of pressing the button on
your senior medical alert device, you open the 5Star app on your smartphone. You
are still directly connected to an NAED Certified Agent, and GPS location services
also work through your smartphone. In a world where most people have a cell phone,
using the 5Star app allows you to carry around one less device and still be protected
by the same service.
Whether it is through the Splash device or the 5Star app, the senior alert service,
medical assistance, and protection are unsurpassed. 5Star can help give you back
your freedom and provide peace of mind for you and your family.
