Seniors Helping Seniors® Announces Partnership with Electronic Caregiver™
The companion care company that sets itself apart by creating meaningful relationships between senior clients and caregivers is continuing to provide safety and reassurance to the senior community.
Reading, Pa. — Seniors Helping Seniors®, a senior care brand that employs a mature caregiver workforce, allowing clients to continue to live independent lives while cultivating meaningful relationships, has announced a partnership with virtual healthcare solutions provider, Electronic Caregiver™. The partnership will allow seniors and their families to monitor their loved ones safely, at a distance.
“Partnering with Electronic Caregiver™ will allow us to continue to offer our services, allowing seniors to age safely and peacefully,” said Daniel Jan, VP of Operations for Seniors Helping Seniors®. “The remote patient monitoring will give families peace of mind that their loved ones are safe, when they can’t physically be there.”
Founded in 1998 by husband-and-wife team Kiran and Philip Yocom, Seniors Helping Seniors® believes in providing loving and empathetic care — and maintains that seniors who give, and those who receive, both benefit from The Power of Love®. The announcement comes at a crucial time, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to prove the biggest threat to the senior community. With an increased demand for Seniors Helping Seniors®, due to more people moving their loved ones to in-home care, Electronic Caregiver™ will benefit seniors both on the giving and receiving side of care.
“We’re creating a one-stop shop for our franchise owners and are providing them with the tools to keep the senior community as safe as possible,” said Seniors Helping Seniors® Executive Vice President Namrata Yocom-Jan. Our mission has always been to Bring Love into the lives of Seniors with Dignity and Respect®, and, through turbulent times, we’ll continue to adapt in order to carry out this mission.”
Electronic Caregiver™ is one of the fastest growing health technology providers in the U.S., offering automated solutions and safety devices nationwide. The company was founded in 2009 with the intention of improving health and safety monitoring and bettering people’s lives. Today, the brand is only a handful of nationwide service providers and has created Addison, the Virtual Caregiver™. She is a voice and visual sensing, 3D, AI-based, connected caregiver designed to transform a residence into a digital Smart Health Home.
"Our technology, paired with a true partner like Seniors Helping Seniors® allows the home care community to better address the needs of the ever-growing senior population,” said Electronic Caregiver™ Director of Business Development Vincent Melendez. “Now more than ever, early interventions, real-time relevant data, and care coordination are key to aging in place and improved outcomes."
