Currently, Great Call has four key devices that are offered. The first one is Jitterbug Smart 2, which is a smartphone with simple functions and buttons. The second one is the Jitterbug flip, which was one of the company’s first devices. It is an easy-to-use cell phone with an Urgent Care button built in to call for help when needed. Third, there is the Lively Mobile device which is worn. It is a mobile medical alert device with fall detection (to call for help). Lastly is the Lively Wearable, which can be used in conjunction with the Jitterbug Smart2. It is a medical alert device, but it is a bit more high-tech than the Lively Mobile device. All devices can be either ordered online or purchased from retailers like Walmart, Sears, RiteAid, Best Buy, or Amazon. The Jitterbug Smart2 is $149.99. The Jitterbug flip is $99.99.

Some of the key features of the devices are 5Star Urgent Response, which is a service that is accessible via the device. If you need help, there are representatives on call that will send help to your location. The Urgent Care feature is another great feature and is available 24/7 and there are registered nurses and doctors who are available to talk with you directly and provide any assistance you may need. The Great Call Link app is an app for your family members to keep up with your well-being, ensuring that you are okay. Lastly, there are the fun Brain Games, providing fun interactive games to keep your mind sharp.
