[ARCHIVED] Affordable Medical Alert Services for Senior Citizens

Medical Alert

Smithtown Senior Citizens Department Provides Low Cost Medical Alert Monitoring Services

The Smithtown Senior Citizens Department offers in-home medical alert monitoring services to its senior residents aged 62 and older. Medical alert clients simply wear an easy-touch activator that can be worn as a pendant or on the wrist. When activated, professionally trained emergency response operators are available 24/7 to help. This medical alert system allows seniors to live independently, with the comfort and peace of mind knowing that help is just a touch away.

“Our objective with this personal emergency response system is to ensure the wellbeing of our seniors and enable them to remain safely in their homes. Perhaps just as important, it provides seniors with the peace of mind knowing that if they ever need help, they will get it.”- Laura Greif, Smithtown Senior Citizens Department Program Director. 

The Connect America Medical Alert Program currently services 230 residents within the Town of Smithtown. 

This service is available for a monthly monitoring fee of $18, which is paid directly to the monitoring company. There are no initiation fees, contracts or cancellation penalties. All equipment is paid for by the Town of Smithtown through funding for this program, provided by a federal grant from Housing and Urban Development (HUD), awarded to the Town of Smithtown Community Development Department.

Eligibility Requirements:

To be eligible for Medical Alert Services, applicants must:

  • Be a resident of the Town of Smithtown

  • Be aged 62 or older

  • Have a landline phone

For further information regarding this and other senior programs, call the Senior Center at 631-360-7616. Eligible residents can schedule a brief in-home assessment through the Smithtown Senior Citizens Department.
