Ohio (PRWEB) October 17, 2006
Whether selling to or providing services for senior citizens in Ohio, business owners now have a powerful method to reach potential clients.
Barbara Mascio, founder of Senior Approved Services (http://www.seniorapprovedcertification.com) states, “No one in the health or elder care industry requires the survey or the high standards that we are looking for."
She further states, "We applaud our current Approved Services for being the leaders in their industry. We offer the only logical method available that truly addresses the issue of safety when contracting with an outside service to provide care for an aging loved one.”
Senior Approved Services proves to be a viable solution for the elderly and the family caregiver.
Senior Approved Services (SAS) has served more than 8,000 seniors since 2003 at no cost to the senior and without asking or expecting supportive dollars from Federal or State funding.
Ohio resident and entrepreneur, Mr. David Patel, has generously agreed to help sponsor Senior Approved Services for the state of Ohio. Please see http://www.seniorapproved-ohio.com. Mr. Patel is the founder and CEO of Alpine Home Care Services, Inc. located in Independence Ohio. Alpine is also a Certified Senior Approved Service after having successfully completed the SAS required ethic-based consumer driven survey process.
The demand for additional resources to serve both the needs of the aging population and supportive programs for the family caregiver within OH is clear.

Seniors, family caregivers, social workers, discharge planners, and even EAP groups make use of SAS service free of charge. SAS is supported by; forward thinking, caring, elder care businesses that recognize the need to protect the elder population from contracting with less than desirable companies.
The health and elder care businesses awarded the Senior Approved Certification have, without any state or federal mandate, paid a fee for the required survey process. In return, their services are recommended and endorsed to seniors and family caregivers in Ohio as a safe and reliable service to contract with.
Each Certified Senior Approved Service must adhere to a code of ethics in its daily operations. The ethical business practices of health and elder care-related services, resources, and products is proven through the successful completion of the ethic-based consumer-driven survey process.
Complimenting existing programs, SAS is poised to make a positive impact within Ohio. The goal of Senior Approved Services is to develop a ‘One-Call-Solution’. This opens up a tremendous opportunity, not only for health and elder care related service providers, but it also includes opportunities for those businesses that cater or market to the senior citizen.
