Keeping in Touch with Aging Parents just got Easier: New Service Provides Caring Contact with Homebound, Alone, or Recovering Seniors and Loved Ones

Share Article

The senior segment of the population is growing at an unprecedented rate, and the stress experienced among the busy family members or friends charged with caring for these individuals is also increasing steadily. Keeping In Touch Services is providing some much needed help in the form of daily phone contact to aging, homebound or recovering seniors. A caring, responsible and respectful adult will call every day at a scheduled time to ensure your loved one is doing well.

No one wants to admit that a loved one is a burden, but the reality is that juggling work, family and caring for an aging parent can truly take a toll on the caregiver. Merely being responsible for making daily contact can be a relationship destroying and often health damaging stress. And with the senior segment of the population growing at an unprecedented rate (an expected 147% increase from 2000 to 2050), Keeping In Touch Services could be the solution thousands of guilt ridden caregivers have been looking for.

By making a daily call at a prescheduled time to your loved one, Keeping In Touch Services performs one of the most important elements of caring for homebound, often ailing or recovering senior citizens - regular contact! Founder Diana Beam states, "For less than the cost of a gourmet coffee, a friendly, respectful and responsible adult - no automated callers here - will personally call your loved one's number every day and make sure he or she is okay, chat briefly about the day and even remind him or her to take medications." Beam continues, "Our clients can even opt to receive email updates from our 'Care Callers' with notes on the conversation."

As an active member of the senior community, a former health care administrator, a mother and a daughter, Diana Beam knows the importance of creating support options for seniors and for those who are responsible for their quality of life. "I understand that sometimes there aren't enough hours in the day," Beam continues, "I created this service to provide peace of mind for busy people just like me - not to replace their care efforts but to supplement them."

To celebrate the launch of what is sure to be a life-changing service for many of the millions of Baby Boomers charged with caring for aging parents, Keeping In Touch Services is offering one month of calling services for only $10, with $5 of each enrollment being donated to The Weekend to End Breast Cancer Walk (a local community project sponsored by The St. Vincent Foundation). This offer is good through November 1, 2009. Confidential enrollment is available by calling Julie at 1-800-877-2180 or by going online to is a service of Just Like My DaughterTM, providing you one-call personalized in-home assessments, consulting, concierge services, plus unique relocation and moving services for you and your family.
