McLean, VA and Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) July 09, 2011

BeClose (http://www.beclose.com), the leading provider of real-time home monitoring systems, and SeniorChecked (http://www.seniorchecked.com), a national directory of screened and certified local service providers, today announced a partnership to co-market and distribute their complementary products. The two companies share a common mission: providing safe, affordable resources for Americans to age in place with dignity.

This partnership brings numerous benefits to BeClose and SeniorChecked customers. Being safe at home and staying connected to loved ones will now be paired with safe, fair and ethical delivery of core services to provide compassionate and high quality independent living for seniors. “Our two companies are coming together to fulfill a vision of safe and fulfilling aging in place for the 40 million Americans over the age of 65 who wish to stay in their homes as long as possible,” says Liddy Manson, President of BeClose.

SeniorChecked and BeClose also share a localized approach, rather than trying to force a one-size-fits all national aging solution. In every region of our country, aging seniors and their caregivers approach aging and caregiving in a way that’s specific to their geographic reality and community. BeClose and SeniorChecked are committed to meeting people on their own terms. BeClose does so by tailoring their technology for seniors--sensors and monitoring systems--to exactly the situation of each senior and caregiver. SeniorChecked does so by meeting the needs of seniors in specific locations. In Florida, for instance, seniors don’t need someone to shovel snow in the winter, but might need a gardener who is reliable.

"We couldn’t be more excited about this premium partnership with BeClose,” said SeniorChecked CEO Chris Spanos. “They offer an affordable, innovative product, and provide exceptional customer service. We endorse their products, and are in complete alignment in our mission to help older Americans (and their families) age in place with the resources and support they need.”
