RescueTouch is a medical alert company based in The Villages, Florida, that provides a unique cellular-only alert system with a range of options we haven’t seen from any other provider. RescueTouch was started by a volunteer EMT, and the company today is staffed by trained first responders. RescueTouch connects users to local 911 centers or to caregivers, with a more traditional call center monitoring option also available.

Medical Alerts From RescueTouch
RescueTouch offers a smart, modern, portable alert unit that fits in the palm of your hand and can easily be worn on a lanyard. Unlike most medical alert systems there is no base unit. All calls are made direct from the hand held unit, using a cellular network. Each unit acts as a two-way speakerphone, and loved ones and care givers can reach out to the unit holder if they are concerned, instead of waiting for the holder to call them.
We really like the look of the RescueTouch alerts. Not only are they small and portable, but their modern shape and vibrant colors set them apart from other medical alert devices. Users can choose from colors such as “Stealth Black”, “Flirty Pink”, and “Goin’ Goofy Green”. RescueTouch alerts look nothing like traditional medical alert devices.
Features of RescueTouch Medical Alerts
RescueTouch offers a range of features so every user can find the unit that best suits their needs. All units are waterproof and have GPS location technology.
The basic unit, 911 Caller, connects the caller direct to local 911 centers.
Users who want to be connected to caregivers or families can choose Care Caller, which calls up to three pre-programmed personal contacts when the button is pressed. Care Caller also comes with text alerts and GPS tracking. Users who want extra peace of mind can opt for Fall Caller, which offers all the great features of Care Caller, plus a fall detection option.
For those who prefer a traditional medical alert call center system, there is Maximum Caller. Trained center operators can dispatch emergency services or contact family or caregivers. GPS tracking and fall detection are included at no extra cost.
Couples or friends who want a way to check in with each other around the house or from house to yard, can choose the Chit Chat pack – a two-way walkie talkie style system. There is also a Chit Chat Pro option which includes fall detection.
Terms and Conditions of RescueTouch Medical Alerts
RescueTouch doesn’t tie its users in to long-term contracts. There is a one time non-refundable $99 fee for equipment purchase, and after that users simply pay for their chosen package. Users can choose to pay for their service monthly, quarterly, or by annual subscription. Prices start at $19 monthly for 911 Caller, up to $69 monthly for Chit Chat Pro, so there is an option for every budget. Pre-paid subscriptions are non refundable, but there are no cancelation charges or early termination fees.
The Bottom Line
RescueTouch offers a refreshingly different approach to medical alert systems. We especially like the small, portable unit with its modern colors, and the wide range of different alert systems available to suit most needs and budgets. The cellular service means no land line or base unit is needed, making RescueTouch a portable, flexible option for everyone.
