How the company describes the product: 

"CareRinger cares for you and your friends and family. It helps you get connected to your loved ones when the CareRinger call is not answered. How it works: It’s like having a call buddy. CareRinger makes all the buddy calls. It will notify the designated care buddy, friend or family member if the call is not answered. Senior-friendly Features: • CareRinger calls you at the time of your choosing; Check-in early, so CareRinger knows not to call you again;  CareRinger will alert the designated contact according to your instruction, by phone, by text or email."

Discussion and Reviews

Life Safety devices require reliable communication response that is monitored 24/7. Global link Response Centre has the people and technologies to provide services to thousands of homes and businesses. We helped CareRinger develop its system to integrate with our monitoring automation system. Alerts are sent to us whenever check-in calls are not answered and we respond accordingly. The link between our systems has proven to be very reliable. Anyone wishing to provide check-in call services with the option of using the Global Link Response Center should follow up with CareRinger.

I use Careringer as a reminder service to take my pills.

Works great doesn't break.

My mother has used the CareRinger service for several years. It gives our family peace of mind to know that we will get a notification if she doesn't respond to her daily check-in call.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.


* Full Disclosure: In some cases, the links that take you away from our website to the website of the "company" may be "affiliate links". If you use these links when you buy products we write about, we may earn commisions from qualifying purchases as an Amazon Associate or other affiliate program participant.
