Grandparents Day and The Buddy Network: A Reason to Connect

Share Article

Grandparents Day celebrates seniors and recognizes the role they play in our lives. The Buddy Check Network has a new tool for individuals to communicate and connect with their Grandparents.

Grandparents' Day is a day to celebrate Grandparents, honor their heritage and to champion the cause of the elderly. The Buddy Check Network celebrates Grandparents' Day with shared sentiments as it upholds its mission to allow seniors to live safely and independently in their homes.

The Buddy Check Network (BCN) ( provides an enhanced communication system for elderly Grandparents and gives their children and grandchildren peace of mind knowing that they are being checked on.

Recognizing that many of the 56 million grandparents living in the U.S today enjoy an independent lifestyle, The Buddy Check Network's Virtual Homecare system allows Grandparents to age in place at home safely.

At its foundation is a suite of phone based services aimed at connecting seniors to wellness solutions and professionals who are committed to keeping them safe and healthy. BCN's supportive social network harnesses the power of speech recognition technology and delivers it through the home telephone to create a care management system.

This user-friendly system automatically monitors loved ones or "buddies"- by calling them at scheduled times each day to determine if they need help or are in distress. The Buddy Check Alert System immediately contacts friends or family members-who are identified as "Buddies"-by phone, voice email, or text message if their loved needs help.

While we recognize that seniors enjoy the ease of the low-tech access via their home phones, the Buddy Check Network harnessed the power of an iPhone App to make it easy for their children to monitor the Buddy Check call reports with easy access on their iPhones. Registered users can receive detailed information about their loved one's health status right from their iPhone ( A touch of the screen gives members immediate access into the information from their loved one's monitoring call from The Buddy Check Network.

Once a loved one is connected to the Buddy Check Network, they are linked in to a personalized wellness management system that proactively monitors chronic medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, COPD, etc. The system can even place reminder phone calls for doctors' appointments or give prompts reminding individuals to reorder medications.
