Our Company

Mercury Alert AI brings peace of mind to caregivers by keeping older adults safe, independent, and connected in their own homes.


Founded in 2018, Mercury Alert combines start-of-the-art AI with passion, driven by a personal mission. Our founders both had grandmothers with severe dementia, and witnessed their parents’ struggles to care for them. To develop something to help their parents and other caretakers, they created a remote and personalizable health monitoring system.

Some of our notable partnerships include Pacifica Senior Care and Coast Care Partners, but we hope to pilot and install throughout San Diego to make caregiving more accessible to families across the US.
