Whether your parents are seniors or you’re one yourself, you need to maintain your peace of mind. LifeStation Mobile GPS Medical Alert is an alarm system for seniors or the impaired who live alone. The device is on sale for $30, or $10 off its list price on Amazon.
Normally retailing for $40, the LifeStation Mobile GPS Medical Alert is a small and lightweight communication device that weighs only two ounces and can be worn around your neck or kept in your pocket. Here’s how it works: Just press the large button with the “phone” icon in the center of the device if you’re in need of emergency medical assistance.
Once pressed, a TMA-certified (The Monitoring Association) care specialist from LifeStation will return your call and ask you about your medical state. The specialist can also send an ambulance to your home, if necessary. The device can also contact any friends or family in the event of an emergency via text message or phone call.
LifeStation uses GPS tracking and your home WiFi signals to find your location for an ambulance and other emergency services, while the device itself has an impressive five-day battery life on just one charge. It’s even waterproof and comes with a charging cradle for a quick charge, while it also works with Alexa — if you live in a smart home.
The LifeStation Mobile GPS Medical Alert also comes with one month of service as part of a free trial, while service plans for 24/7 and year-round monitoring start at just $25 per month — which can be canceled at any time with no contracts or hidden fees. You and your family’s peace of mind is worth that and more!

But don’t just take our word for it.
“I'm now eighty and living alone,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “Two of my children live an hour's drive away and they're always ready to help, but in an emergency I rely on LifeStation. Shortly after purchasing LifeStation I woke in the middle of the night, feeling strange. And then I found I couldn't stand up. Oh no, the feared stroke! But LifeStation summoned EMTs, who determined it was simply very low blood sugar and took me to the hospital for treatment. Since then there've been other times LifeStation has helped me out, always with great consideration and reassurance on the part of the ladies on the phone. This is an expense I pay willingly, for my and my children's peace of mind.”
“The device doesn't require anything other than a phone call from the user to the service provider for setup and testing,” another fan of the small device wrote. “My 85-year-old parent made the call and within a few minutes was set and ready to go. The service providers are very helpful and answered all her questions fully. She now feels much more comfortable going anywhere she wants. the device comes with a charging cradle that the device rests in to charge so even if the user has impaired sight, they just need to set it in the cradle to charge it. It weighs a few ounces and she now wears it all the time without fail. A great device that any senior that might be prone to fall or have a medical condition should have.”
Another shopper added, “This unit is perfect. Bought it for my father cause he stays alone some during the day. He isn't as afraid when he has this unit on. Works better than expected. It calls 911 and also text my sister and I when he activates the button.”
