Providing care for an aging family member can sometimes be overwhelming. GreatCall Link is a free app that keeps you informed about the health and safety of senior family members that have a GreatCall device, right on your own smartphone. You can keep up-to-date when you want without disturbing them – helping them stay healthy, safe and independent.
When paired with a GreatCall Jitterbug Phone, GreatCall Splash or Lively Alert:
Alerts when an emergency call is made to 5Star
List of “zone” locations recently visited
Current map location through patented GPS technology
Weekly summaries based off device’s activity
Battery status of a connected Greatcall device
When paired with Lively Wearable
Power status of a connected Lively Wearable device
Alerts when an emergency call is made to 5Star
The same app works on all devices. The GreatCall Link app and a GreatCall Link-enabled device work together to keep the whole family connected, informed and independent.
Open the GreatCall Link app on a smartphone and know immediately if the user’s device (Jitterbug Phone, GreatCall Splash or Lively Wearable) is on. No more wondering if it’s forgotten at home or if it needs to be charged. You’ll even get an alert when the battery reaches critical level, so you can remind them to recharge and remain connected to help.
Be in the know. Link will send push notifications for selected actions, including when a call is made to 5Star Emergency Services. When you have current information, you’re able to make decisions quickly, allowing you to follow up without delay.
When the locator feature is enabled, 5Star agents and invited contacts can confirm a Subscriber’s location on a map. In an emergency, this information can be relayed to first responders and save crucial minutes and seconds. Use the locator along with your smartphone’s navigation system to get directions directly to the Subscriber's location, without having to call. To maximize the battery performance of the 5Star user's device, location information is only updated once every 20 minutes by design. However, the latest location of the device can be retrieved at any time by clicking the "Update Location" button while viewing the map.
View a list of daily activities to confirm routines are normal. When paired with a GreatCall phone or GreatCall Splash, the app lists recent zone locations, based on information in the Personal Profile, making it easy to see if appointments are being kept or if there is a change in routine.
“I just don’t know what I’d do without the comfort that GreatCall gives me, and now with this app, it’s always giving me updates and giving me peace of mind. Thank you!”
“I'm really appreciating the service provided, and especially the app and website, as these have helped me to keep my Mom honest about wearing the 5Star device. I know if she has forgotten it, as the battery status shows 'charging', which means it is still plugged in on her nightstand. Also love that it works when she is away from home, and shows where she is. Great job!”

Invaluable to me and Mom
I love it because the app wants me to call my mom and tell her to put it on the charger on the battery is low. She loves it because she has a great sense of security. My mother is very independent and still drives us to the grocery store close to the gym and works out. She has two groups that she meets for lunch to her three times a month. I can always track her through the app and she feels comfortable that if she falls or gets into an accident I'll she has to do is punch the button and help is on the way. The safety and sense of security versus the price was fantastic!
Helps the long distance relationship
After a series of falls and a couple of 911s my mom finally gave in and let us get her a cell phone. I jumped on the opportunity to get the Jitterbug, and she and my siblings are all content with the new closeness it has given us.
Knowing where she is, and that she isn't tied to a land line, is great comfort.
Peace of Mind
Exactly what my family needed to keep tabs on our mother who lives alone. The GPS lets me know if she is home or out and whether battery needs to be charged. The app is a great check-in throughout the day while I am at work! No contracts was nice also - just pay month to month 😀
