For those who have followed my blog for a few years, you may remember the harrowing live video of my dad being airlifted to a metro hospital after suffering a severe stroke a few years ago. Mom is his sole caregiver now, with us helping as much as we can.
Actually, it’s been almost four years. Hard to believe it’s been that long; and, so thankful that he’s still here with us. I know firsthand now what it means to be a caregiver. It’s HARD work! With COVID, I’m not able to go to their house and help every day like I did for the first three years. I do much their shopping, and drop in to help when needed. Dad is hanging in there, struggling like everyone else during the pandemic with not being able to socialize in person. He tries to get out to his shop, but it’s really scary because he gets stuck on things, in things and – well you get the idea. He’s in a power wheelchair now, having lost the use of his left side. It’s hard for him to use his phone, which is now his life-link when he leaves the house.
Maybe even more importantly, yet not often thought about, is my mom! She seems fine, but taking care of him is wearing on her. She’s his sole caregiver now, and in her mid 70s. It’s hard work and exhausting! We’ve had a few close calls with her too. I won’t get into details, but no one is infallible.

LifeStation has two options: On the Go or At Home. For those on the go, anywhere you go, help is just a button press away for seniors with the mobile medical alert button with GPS.

But, here’s what’s new! LifeStation Luxury is a gorgeous necklace that also functions as a medical alert device. Best part? Nobody has to even know that it’s not just a super stylish piece of jewelry!
When people get older, it seems that companies think they no longer care about fashion. Styles are blah, more likely to be focused on comfort and function than looking great. The Luxury line is a breath of fresh air for senior style!
Wear your medical alert with confidence wherever you go. This elegant pendant is carefully crafted with high quality materials made to last and offers discreet safety with a built in medical alert button.
This high quality pendant is made up of a brass case with rhodium colored plating, accented with center faceted lapis blue resin stone, and a 30” brass chain. And it weighs just 2.1 total ounces. That’s less than a first-class letter! So, you won’t feel weighed down.
Most Importantly, It’s Reliable
They use the ultra reliable AT&T 4G LTE network — the most powerful nationwide service available, allowing them to monitor anywhere in the U.S.
Not only that, you can actually ask Alexa, “where’s mom?” How cool is that!? You can set it up with Amazon Echo (or use the Alexa app on your phone, it’s free).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We highly recommend LifeStyle Luxury medical alert necklace for loved ones who want to remain independent, and for your peace of mind.
