Our Story
The story begins in the mid 1970s when Stan and Judy Davis packed up their U-Haul truck and moved their four children from Texas back to California to be close to family.
Stan’s father and grandfather were both medical doctors who emphasized the value in serving others. This principle represents the foundation upon which Life-Assist is built. Since 1977, when Stan and his wife, Judy, founded Life-Assist, the business has been run with one very basic tenet –the customer always comes first. After 45 years following this philosophy, in July 2022, Life-Assist went one step further, giving its employees a vested interest in serving others by becoming an ESOP company (Employee Ownership Stock Plan).
