Bethesda, MD and Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 1, 2011
SeniorChecked is pleased to announce the addition of AtGuardianAngel of Austin, TX to the SeniorChecked Trusted Local Business Network. SeniorChecked is a national network that connects Seniors, their families and caregivers with trusted local service providers. To be part of the SeniorChecked network, businesses must pass the most comprehensive set of background checks in the industry including more than two dozen local, state and national screenings.
As a fully verified SeniorChecked member, AtGuardianAngel has been awarded the SeniorChecked Trust Seal, SeniorChecked’s symbol for screened and verified businesses. When customers see AtGuardianAngel displaying the Trust Seal they can feel confident that they have been verified and are trusted.
According to the MetLife Mature Market Institute, Seniors are victims to over $2.6 billion in fraud annually, with 56% of cases being committed by unscrupulous service providers. This fraud is only expected to rise as 93% of Seniors choose to stay in their homes, according to the American Geriatric Society, and the senior population doubles to 80 million over the next 30 years. By selecting to become SeniorChecked, AtGuardianAngel has chosen to distinguish themselves as a trusted service provider in the marketplace and distance themselves from fraudsters and scam artists who prey on Seniors.
“The rates and incidences of fraud against Seniors is happening at an alarming rate. Seniors and their caregivers are looking for trusted service providers to work with but aren’t always sure who they can trust” said Chris Spanos, CEO. “Companies who pass our rigorous background checks and become members of SeniorChecked have made a strong statement to Seniors that they have been verified and are trustworthy.”
“Developing trusting relationships with seniors, their loved ones and their caregivers is a critical aspect of our business” said Ed Caracappa, CEO of AtGuardianAngel. “Deep relationships are always more readily accomplished when you have a reference from a well-respected source. In this marketplace, there is no better source for that reference than SeniorChecked. We are proud to display their mark alongside our brand.”
