Gilbert, Arizona (PRWEB) December 09, 2013 - CarePatrol is a free national senior referral and placement agency that specializes in placing individuals in independent living, assisted living, nursing homes, and Dementia and Alzheimer’s memory care facilities. They individually assess each senior’s medical, social, geographical and financial needs to find them the right facility. CarePatrol is transforming the senior care world by creating no cost supplemental programs that help ensure the safety of their clients, including The CarePatrol Telephone Reassurance Program and The CarePatrol Medication Reminder Program.
The Telephone Reassurance Program schedules calls to a loved one at their home to confirm their well-being. After a voice prompt, the individual is instructed to press one if they are ok; if they press one, the system will reset to contact them at the next scheduled time. If there is no response, or the person does not press one, after three calls, up to three pre-set people will be alerted by either telephone or email that a wellness check is necessary.
The Medication Reminder Program also works through pre-scheduled automated phone calls that alert seniors to take their medication. They are prompted to press one if they have or are presently going to take their medicine. If there is no response or the person does not press one, up to three people can be alerted that the senior has not taken their medication as scheduled.
"CarePatrol is offering this as a free service to seniors across the country because it is our mission to help seniors be safe in their environment, whether it is in assisted living or in their own home," said CarePatrol CEO Chuck Bongiovanni. "We are proud to be able to offer this program and foresee assisting many elderly individuals for a long time."
These programs provide the opportunity for seniors to truly receive premium care and attention, and augment the already existing systems at CarePatrol that offer seniors the top options for senior living placement.
Established in Arizona in 1994, CarePatrol is a free senior housing referral service that assists older adults and their families in selecting and transitioning into assisted living homes, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care facilities and coordinating in-home care needs.
