Andale, Kansas
My Mother purchased LifeStation while she was a caregiver for my Father. The home health nurse talked her into it because if Mom fell, no one would be there to take care of either of them. She had it for a year after Dad passed away and almost canceled it but decided not to. A month later she fell and broke her hip and couldn't move. She pushed her button and they responded quickly. She had the lock box so they didn't have to break her door to get to her. She had the wristband so she never removed it and thank goodness for that. She could have died before someone found her laying on the floor. We are glad every day that she keeps this system.

If I could give them zero stars I would. My mother lived in an assisted living facility and only used the system once. The ambulance they called cost over twice what I normally paid for that service. My mother recently passed away and I called to cancel the account. I was told I had to mail back the box and button in order for them to cancel the account ($25 to mail it back to them). This in the middle of trying to make funeral arrangements. I asked them for a prorated rebate since I pay yearly (in order to get their "great rates") and I had just renewed two months prior. They said no, you got the better rate so we don't refund. Over $300 gone. And the button must have been... Read More

I have had a contract with LifeStation for the past few years. The service worked OK, but my problem is with the scam they run when you try to cancel the service. In spite of calling to tell them on Dec. 4 2014 to discontinue the service and that the equipment was in the mail, they still charged me for three months of service, beginning on Dec. 5. They claim that they won't actually cut service until they receive the equipment (it arrived at their corporation Dec. 16) and that it is their policy to charge for the entire next billing cycle. I feel totally ripped off for $75, hence am motivated to share my story with you. Next time I'll go with Bay Alarm.
