Ohio (PRWEB) September 5, 2007
In keeping with its mission to strengthen the ability of its members to offer quality adult day services by providing education, advocacy and leadership, The Ohio Association of Adult Day Services (OAADS) has added a new membership benefit.
Members of OAADS can now take advantage of the opportunity to qualify as a Certified Senior Approved Service and as members, receive an immediate 10% discount on the survey/certification fee. Those businesses that qualify reap the benefits of third-party validation; a unique benefit designed around the ever-increasing demands of the consumers' desire of an independent means to quickly and easily locate credible services to contract with on behalf of aging parents.
"It has been an awesome experience to know and collaborate with the Founder/CEO of Senior Approved Services, Barbara Mascio," states Tom Begert-Clark, OAADS Board Member and founder of Even as We Speak. (http://www.evenaswespeakonline.com)
Tom elaborates further by offering, "Barbara is always on the lookout for providers that are worthy to the Senior Approved Services certification. I am energized and refreshed by Barbara's never ending passion for assuring that the services her company certifies are the 'cream of the crop.' Barbara's basic mission is to see that seniors are not taken advantage of, misinformed, nor financially or mentally abused by unscrupulous businesses that might pry on the senior population."
"It is all about assuring that all seniors receive the highest quality of services, care and value based on what other seniors and caregivers have experienced and shared. I recommend and utilize Senior Approved Services to many of my clients whether it is to find an everyday household service to enrolling their loved in that awesome adult day care center. I trust Senior Approved providers to have the senior and caregiver first in mind. I recommend Senior Approved Services to all seniors and caregivers." Begert states.
The Senior Approved Certification ensures a history of quality service and credibility to seniors and their families, as well as key referral sources within the health and elder care industry, in search of verified quality providers. The Certification states, quite simply, that the business is indeed a safe and reliable service to contract with.
