We get asked the question a lot. Does AARP have a medical alert system? Or does AARP recommend your medical alert system? The answer to both of these questions is no.
MobileHelp is an FDA registered manufacturer of medical alert systems for many of the companies you might come across in your research but AARP is not one of them. AARP is a neutral party who does not sell or recommend medical alert systems.
You may also come across websites that claim to provide a list of AARP approved medical alert devices when searching on Google. These articles are also false.
AARP has provided a guide that can be found at https://www.aarp.org/caregiving/home-care/info-2017/medic-alert-systems-options.html which provides helpful information about how to choose a medical alert system for a loved one. AARP recommends the following features when looking for a medical alert system:
- Fall Detection
- Call for Help
- Medical Monitoring
- Cellular/GPS coverage
- Location Detection & Tracking
MobileHelp is an advertiser in the AARP magazine and the AARP bulletin.

While there are standards to follow, these standards do not constitute and endorsement of medical alert systems or recommendations for medical alert systems.
