Bottom Line

Aloe Care provides medical alert systems for at-home and mobile use with features like fall detection, motion sensors and a voice-activated smart hub for calling for help. It offers four packages at different price points.

What is Aloe Care Health?

Aloe Care sells monitored medical alert systems with voice-activated hubs and temperature and air quality alerts. The company offers four different medical alert packages: Essentials, Essentials Plus, Total Care and Mobile Companion, which comes as a stand-alone product. The Essentials package works with a 4G hub, the Total Care system requires Wi-Fi and the Mobile Companion runs on 4G LTE.

Each Aloe Care system comes with an app that lets caregivers make calls directly to the hub, and the hub’s backup battery ensures the system continues working even during a power failure. The Total Care app also comes with motion sensors and an automatic fall detection sensor for the bathroom.

How does Aloe Care Health work?

In the event of an emergency, Aloe Care lets you or your loved one connect directly to a TMA Five Diamond-certified response center. Its team provides necessary assistance, whether that’s dispatching medical personnel or contacting a family member. You can contact the call center using the voice-activated hub or the system’s care button.

Aloe Care offers four medical alert system options.

The Essentials package includes:

  • Smart hub: The smart hub is a voice-activated smart speaker used for contacting family members or the emergency response center. Because the speaker is voice-activated, you don’t have to wear any devices to call for help. Family members can also call through the smart hub.
  • Care button: This can be worn as a necklace or a watch. You can use it to connect to emergency care by pressing the button if you’re having trouble speaking or are too far from the smart hub for voice activation. (This comes with any package.)
  • Aloe app: The Aloe app helps you work with caregivers to ensure safety at all times. It lets you contact friends and family through the smart hub, provides real-time emergency updates and shows environmental conditions, including air quality and weather. Caregivers can also maintain a group chat within the app and see helpful information, like the user’s allergies and home access.

The Essentials Plus package includes everything in the Essentials plan, plus the Mobile Companion, which provides medical alert protection on the go.

The Mobile Companion includes:

  • Two-way calling: In an emergency, users can call for help or get a call from Aloe Care Health’s monitoring team. This system runs on AT&T’s LTE network.
  • Fall detection: This wearable device includes fall detection service at no extra cost.
  • Location detection: Caregivers and emergency responders can find you in an emergency thanks to nationwide location detection.
  • 24/7 emergency response: Like your at-home Aloe devices, the Mobile Companion promises emergency support any day or night.
  • Aloe’s caregiver app: The Mobile Companion also includes access to a caregiver app, with no limit on users.

The Total Care package includes everything from the Essentials Plus package, as well as:

  • Automatic fall detection sensor: The fall detection sensor is designed for the bathroom. It’s voice-activated and uses Wi-Fi to send an alert to the hub to contact caregivers or the emergency response center in case of a fall.
  • Motion sensors: These communicate with the hub and app to alert friends, family members and the emergency response center of any unusual activity.

I was a little disappointed that it didn't work when I was outside my home. I thought that it would work within 100 feet of the base but it didn't. Thankfully, I had my cellphone with me so I was able to call for help. I also set it off inadvertently a few times when I was wearing it on my wrist. So I put it around my neck and I haven't set it off accidentally since.

Aloe Care Health response

Hi Judy - We're very sorry that happened to you & VERY glad you were able to call for help! It may be useful to consider adding the Mobile Companion Go to your service which works nationwide and has built-in fall detection. It's our latest offering and it's a small, powerful device - easy to wear around your neck. I'd be happy to help arrange that for you at a very (very!) low price. We'll contact you directly with more information. Please be safe and well, Judy!

    I called a couple of different places and the people from Aloe Care have the best product for the best price. Their customer care was phenomenal, too. While I was looking into purchasing their device for my mother, periodically, their reps Tony and Larry, would check in. They would ask about my mom and if I was ready to buy. But there was no pressure. Then when I bought it two years later, they gave me the same sale price that was being offered back in 2020 for Mother's Day. They walked us through setting it up, too.

    My mom's had a couple emergency situations and Aloe Care's reps have been really on the ball. They were super caring and non-judgmental. My mom is now alone at her house and every once in a while, there'll be a glitch or something will happen and my mom calls them, and they respond to her right away. It's nice knowing that there's someone there full time with our mom that we can check in with, even though it’s a machine. We love that device. My mom has lost her independence and this has made such a big difference because she feels safer in her own home. I tell everybody about it.

    Thank you, Ursula! We're so glad we are helping both your mom & the family caregivers! Keeping people safer and bringing peace of mind to everyone in the care circle is so important - it's why we do what we do. We'll share your appreciation with Toni and Barry, too!

    I got Aloe for my dad. If he fell or hit the button, it would trigger something. It was just there for peace of mind. It was an emergency alert to let the users know that something happened. If they needed an ambulance, they could also use that. The device has a nice design. It looked like a watch and it didn't feel intrusive. It had a great speaker. If you couldn't get to the button, you could shout a certain word and the device would hear it. It would say, “Hey, you need this person?” My mom used the device too and it had a button for my mom to just call me if she couldn’t get to her cell phone. That was cool. There was also a button directly to the care team and there was more than just one person. It got to my sister, my husband, and my daughter. You could put other people on the list and that would go to everybody.

    Original review: March 19, 2022

    I was scanning through the computer trying to find an appropriate device. Some of the companies were very specific that they were Apple oriented. Aloe Care is Apple oriented but it wasn't put out there specifically so that was a little bit of a disappointment. I have not been able to get the app on my computer or on my phone. But my brothers and sisters have not had that issue, so they were able to make that happen.

    The device set itself off last night. When I first got it and we first turned it on, we had to make sure it was working. We did a test on the 24th or the 25th. That went through to the person and they responded to us. That was great. Since I couldn’t get the app on my phone, I called Aloe back. The person said, “I’ll need email addresses so we can invite people.” I called them back once and gave them all the phone numbers and email addresses.

    Come to find out the first email address I gave was that of my older brother, who is busy doing taxes right now for people. He got the first email invite. In the invite, it said, “You need to invite everybody else.” I didn’t understand why they asked for everybody else's email if we weren't inviting them. My son was good enough to let me use his phone to get into the app and go look through and invite my other siblings through the system. When my son's around, I can do what I need to do. That's the only drawback. Also, the device is a little bulkier than I would like. But it's not bad and it's not heavy. It has to be a receiver and it has to just be able to communicate with us. The device also charges every night.

    I set up an Aloe Care system for my 89 year old Mom two years ago. I open my Aloe Care Family Caregiver app every morning to make sure Mom is up to begin her day. Through small sensors strategically placed in her home, the app records her activity as she makes her way from her bedroom, down the hallway, through her living room, and into the kitchen to make her coffee. The family app gives my siblings and me a quick way to check Mom's activity at any time of day without interrupting her routine. And if Mom ever needs help, she can call out "emergency!" or press her CareButton, and the Aloe Care smart hub will be alerted. This is what happened two weeks ago:

    Mom got up at 3am to go to the bathroom. As she was making her way back to bed, she lost her balance and crashed to the tile floor, breaking her pelvis. She did have the presence of mind to remember her CareButton around her neck and pressed it. Within seconds, an Aloe Care professional responder was speaking with her to assess the event and dispatch an ambulance. I received a push notification on my phone as soon as Mom pressed her CareButton, and I was called as soon as the ambulance was in route. Thanks to Aloe Care, Mom did not spend the night in pain on her bathroom floor. She has some tough rehab ahead of her but is very determined to regain her strength and return to the home she loves to celebrate her 90th birthday!

    Aloe was the most attractive because it didn't have a contract and it was well priced. Everything about the experience was spot on.

    Their team is excellent. Now that my mom has the device, I would feel better if she would wear the watch or the neckless. The problem is that she refuses to wear them. So, we just practice her saying emergency three times.

    I fell and decided to get Aloe Care Health. Customer service was wonderful. Sometimes, I don't even know I have the device on. But I don’t like that I have to charge it every day. That is a real disadvantage. Some other ones you can charge them every five to seven days. Aloe is deducting the money from my account every month like they're supposed to and the price is always the same. The only thing is I dropped the device on the floor one day and it didn't go off.

    The Aloe Care Health team is very knowledgeable. They did everything they said and followed up with calls before I even got the product. My mother seems to be more confident in doing things because she has the necklace on. She wears it all the way until she gets in the shower. When I tested the button, their people came on and asked me if I was okay and if I needed help. My only concern is we dropped it and it didn't go off. We didn't know how that works. I read the paperwork and it says, “Does not 100% protect falls.”
