My mother-in-law, who lives with me, gets sick every now and then. She has diabetes and arthritis, and problems with her legs. All these may have made her decide to get a medical alert service. Somebody recommended LifeStation to her and she has been with them for a couple of months. She hangs the medical alert device on her neck like a necklace and puts it right next to her bed at night. She is more confident now that she has that support.
I'm 74, I live alone and I have a lot of health problems. It's good for me to have a medical alert device. Tana was the one who told me about LifeStation. She was concerned that I had to have them. She's a very nice person. If something happens at night, all I would do is push the button on that wrist thing that I wear.
I've had a couple of falls and the kids said I needed a LifeStation. I had a little trouble getting used to it because it comes exactly on my body where both of my tables are. I hit it on both of my tables and I had to apologize for that. I really felt bad about it. However, the last time I talked to somebody, I was left hanging and I didn’t know if I was through or not. I don’t know how to tell if the LifeStation is working. Still, I wear it all the time and right now, there’s a blue light flashing. This is a little phone so evidently, the blue means a phone receiver.
Also, I don’t like that the LifeStation is heavy. If I had my druthers, I would turn it back in and try another medical alert device but I don’t know if I can find another one that’s lightweight and has the part where I can go to the mailbox and the device still works. I hope that’s what I have because I am in the process of letting my cell phone go. I’m not really 100% satisfied with the LifeStation, but I can’t just do without it.
There are two of us using alert devices, so I had to get another one. I got an alert device from LifeStation, but I'm having trouble in trying to get it charged.
I feel safer having my LifeStation device. If I have an emergency in the middle of the night, if I can't breathe or something's happening or if somebody's trying to break in, I sleep better and I have that peace of mind and security. Also, it is great as I get older and have more problems with not being able to take care of myself as well as health issues. LifeStation has been good and the device is easy to push. Also, the LifeStation team responds right away whenever I test my device. They were very friendly and courteous. There were a couple of times when I accidentally hit the button and also, a little two-year-old came over and hit the button as well.

My mother-in-law was using a cane and we were afraid that she was gonna fall so we got her a medical alert device. The LifeStation reps were very professional. They checked the system out when they installed it and they went through how it works. They're supposed to check it out once a month to make sure it's working. My mother-in-law keeps the device in her pocket and being that we're out of the house part of the day, she's much more secure now that she has a way to communicate in case she gets injured.
I had an accident and I take medication for my leg. I also have osteoporosis. I got the little thing around my neck from LifeStation and I can call on an emergency. I will recommend it also to a friend if she needs it.
I was falling a lot but now with the LifeStation device I feel more secure. Their reps are also very good. The only thing I don’t like is I can't go outside and use it.
I'm home alone but having the LifeStation device makes me feel better knowing I have some contact to the outside world. I have it as a wrist watch. I speak with LifeStation reps about once a month and they have been okay.
We got a medical alert device for my husband. During the last year of his life, he fell a lot here in the house. Then after he passed I really needed something, so the kids did not hesitate and they got this LifeStation device. It goes off randomly and I haven't fallen so I have to explain I didn't fall and I don't know what causes it to do that but we haven't really found it to be a big issue. I've had just good experiences with LifeStation. It's comforting to have that security that if I do fall, I have something to rely on to help me. Also, one of my kids gets a notification every time the device has accidentally gone off. I am satisfied with it.
I'm a nurse taking care of Arnita, who's 92 years old, diabetic and has a heart condition. She has nurses only for four hours in the morning and four hours in the evening so she spends a lot of time alone at night, so we thought it was a great idea for her to have LifeStation. We test the system once a month and they respond on time. She used the device one time for an emergency, and they responded on time and got in. We only couldn’t figure out how the emergency department got into her apartment because they didn’t break the door down. We asked the landlord and they didn’t know either. Other than that, they have a great team. I'm more comfortable with the alert device being there. When I set it up for her, I placed my phone number so whenever she pushes the button it would alert me as well.
The doctor said that I needed a LifeStation device in case I fall down 'cause I have artificial knees and screws in my back. I broke my back in three different places. So, my current condition can lead me to fall. I have the monitor on the wall as well as the watch-like band. It's comfortable and I even sleep with it. I press it when I have to call and check in once a month. Their response is fine. I feel very secure since having the LifeStation device. I like it.
I fell once but I got up by myself. However, I sometimes think about what if I don’t get up and I can't. Sometimes I'm alone and that scared me. So I got the LifeStation medical alert device and it is good for me. Now, I'm a little less worried and more confident.
I have terminal cancer and have had LifeStation for two months now. It's really neat knowing that it's available and it's around my neck. My husband is a little hard of hearing but I know that if I hit my button, LifeStation is on the other end of the phone and help would come if needed or somebody would get in touch with him on his phone. I was out shopping one time and banged it on the Walmart cart, and somebody asked if I was okay. I forgot that I had it on and it was nice knowing that somebody was aware of where I was. They also called yesterday as I was at the doctor's and my necklace hit the steering wheel. I had somebody asking if I was okay and if I needed any help. I said I was okay and that it was just the steering wheel, then they asked if it was okay if they reset me. I said that was fine and I thanked them for being there.
I had numerous medical conditions and I fall so I decided to get a LifeStation. I've had a medical alert before but LifeStation is better in terms of price. I wear it around my neck and I have an automatic fall detection. I've used it before but they were a little slow when they came on the speaker but not bad. I didn’t have to have anybody come over. They just asked me if I was okay. I would recommend LifeStation.
I was diagnosed with Parkinson's and unfortunately some falls had resulted from that, so my family figured that getting a medical alert device was the best option to go with. LifeStation was the medical alert device provider that my insurance company decided to give me. I'm really glad that they chose this particular brand because it has been fantastic.
Also, my experience with the reps has been very good. When the button pushed itself, the response time of the LifeStation team was excellent, but my apology time to the people showing up was even better. So, besides a couple of glitches here and there, it's a phenomenal device and I'm really happy to have it. The device is a regular tan-whitish in color, but I'd love it if it's black as it would then be sleeker and cooler-looking. Other than that, I'm really a fan of this device. It's wonderful and the speaker is extremely loud. It's life-changing and it has made a difference since I can go around my house now without any fear.
I have been falling and I'm on oxygen so I got a LifeStation which I wear on my neck. Since then, I feel safer. In fact, I've had an emergency once and the rep came on the intercom in two minutes and stayed with me until the emergency team was here, who responded within 15-20 minutes which was good. My experience with LifeStation has been excellent. The people are so nice and caring as if I'd known them for years.
I insisted on staying here in Florida and not moving back to New York so my niece and nephew set my LifeStation up for me. I'm very secure with it. I always wear it around my neck, especially when I'm alone. I've been able to move around and do everything on my own, but I know that they're there in case I need help. Once, I leaned up against something and it went on. I was shocked when I heard a male voice asking if I was all right. I didn't realize it was the speaker on me. I explained to him that I was fine and that I pushed the button accidentally.
I had about four emergencies. I'm weak and I fall down all the time but I feel more secure since I've had LifeStation. It's good to have it at home. They respond right away. Their customer service reps were very nice.
I fell in the elevator one day but the LifeStation device didn't help me because it wouldn't work. The LifeStation rep told me the device only works in my apartment. A rep called me once because I accidentally hit the device and the customer service was fine.
My mother lives by herself in an apartment so she's alone most of the time. Her health is also not that good, so we thought that LifeStation would be a great device for her. Her care coordinator also recommended it. The device works well and I feel comfortable as her daughter that I know something like that is there. If anything happens, she can just press the button and the police would be there to help her out before we get there. When I was setting it up, I pressed the button just to experience if anybody would answer, and there was a person answering it right away and they were very nice and understanding.
I checked to make sure my LifeStation device was working. They were very polite and nice. I would recommend them.
I'm 88, a little unsteady on my feet and alone since my husband died so I need to be able to get a hold of somebody if something happens to me. I tried a couple of medical alert device before I got LifeStation but they didn't work. They had me send it back and they sent me another one. I tried it and I kept having the same problem. I haven't had that problem with LifeStation. They had something that the others didn't have. They've been very accommodating and very nice. Whenever I test my LifeStation device, they were right there. I also asked them how come it takes so long from the time I pressed the button. I have to go through a couple of connections, but it hasn't been unreasonable.
When I first got it, I mentioned to the rep some of the things that I had problems with the others and we straightened it out before I ever had any problem with this. For instance, the other place told me to clean the back side of my device before I put it on the charger so I mentioned that to her and she said that was a good idea. When I tested the device my son said that he got a text notice at the same time that I made the test. LifeStation also bills automatically and they have always answered me right away.
I was alone two hours a day and since having my LifeStation device, it has made me aware I was alone. I would recommend it for anyone. When my granddaughter accidentally set the alarm off, they answered very quickly and they were able to help me.
I'm 78 years old and I have diabetes, which has affected parts of my body. I also have a problem falling down and driving. I had a stroke a few months ago and my daughter bought LifeStation for me. I wear the device around my neck and it's fine for me to wear it. I even wear it in the shower. I hit it accidentally one time and started the emergency, and it announced that there was an emergency call in progress which took about a minute. Then when the recording stopped, it took a few seconds for them to answer.
The first time I did that, my brother-in-law and my sister were visiting from Texas and I hit it about 7 o'clock in the morning. They had just driven in from a 24-hour drive and they got in about midnight and went to bed. At 7 o'clock in the morning, this thing starts yelling, "Emergency call in progress." They woke up and got out of bed like crazy. Now, LifeStation announces that there's a call in progress. Their reps are very nice. They call me by my first name even though they have no idea who I am. They're always very kind and they tell me they'll reset it.
My knees are shot so it's extremely difficult for me to get up. I have fallen a couple of times right after I got a LifeStation device and their service was very good. Help got here quickly so I'm pleased with the product. I wear the device around my neck. I don't wear it when I'm sleeping but it's right next to where I sleep. LifeStation gives me peace of mind and I know I'm not gonna be lying on the ground for hours because somebody can help me up. I'm able to go about my day-to-day life without worrying about falling down.
LifeStation has made a great change in my sense of security. I got it as I might fall down the stairs and having it is safer. There have been a couple of times where I accidentally used the button, but their team was fine. I had a good experience overall.
I had a stroke about five years ago and I got the LifeStation device for peace of mind. I'm very active and I have a large acreage. I did not want to be in my property and not be able to get to my cell phone where I could easily get through a button. I got rid of it before and went to another kind that was much more high-tech. I could program it from my phone and set it on different levels of fall detection. I could also program a friend's phone number then call a friend and talk to him through the device. It was incredible. But I tested it where a person most commonly would fall, which is in the shower, and their device failed to do a good signal even though it utilized AT&T. LifeStation's device connected every time so I give this company kudos on that and I went back to this kind.
The model we have right now is very good for seniors. But I'm not a senior yet and for me, the button is too large. I wear it around my neck and I end up hitting it accidentally. So the simple solution for me was to turn it around backwards. The response is instantaneous though. I was actually very impressed. It caught me by surprise once because I didn't know I had set if off. I heard a voice and I didn't know where it was coming from. Then I realized I had it on. The representatives were also very friendly and overly helpful. They identified themselves and asked if there was anything wrong and if they could help me. They were very good actually.
The reception is great, and I'm sure the antenna and the battery are awesome. But the device is very low tech. This compared to the other devices is like comparing a walkie-talkie to a cell phone. It would be a great thing for me to be in more control of my device as far as more capabilities and functionalities. I'm not even 60 and I've worked with computers for 40 years. In a few years more people who are reaching 65 are gonna be able to use the internet like crazy. The device could really use some improvement.
I had a different company before and their services were good, but their price was terrible. They told me $39, but they charged $49. My granddaughter changed me to LifeStation and though I haven't had to use it, I'm glad it's here.
If I have a heart attack, I'm supposed to push my LifeStation device button and it calls the ambulance right away. I'm satisfied with it. I like what this thing does.
