New Telephone Service Provides Inexpensive Wellness Checkups for Seniors Living Alone
Petaluma, Monday, March 10, 2014: Sequoia Senior Solutions, Inc. of Petaluma announced today a new service aimed at reducing the risk of prolonged agony and serious harm to Seniors who may fall ill or suffer from an accident at home, and who may otherwise have to wait for hours or even days before help arrives.
The new service, called Wellness Calls, provides regularly scheduled telephone calls from a Sequoia Senior Solutions Remote Caregiver during which the Caregiver can assess the safety and well-being of the Senior and alert the appropriate authorities, or the Senior’s family, should the Senior be in distress or should the Wellness Call go unanswered.
Wellness Calls can also be used as a “reminder service”, prompting those suffering from mild memory loss to take their medications at the prescribed times, to remind them of their Doctor’s appointments, of their Grandchildren’s birthdays, or even to eat their meals or take their showers. But most importantly, Wellness Calls may help people avoid long periods of suffering alone when no one has been alerted about their distress.
“You can’t imagine how many calls we have received from Seniors or their families where the Senior has suffered from a fall or sudden illness and has remained without help, often unable to even get up off the floor, for days at a time,” said Gabriella Ambrosi, CEO of Sequoia Senior Solutions, Inc. “This low cost, low tech solution should help our Seniors and their families rest comfortably knowing that help will be on the way should an accident happen.”
Sequoia Senior Solutions, Inc. has been serving Seniors in the North Bay for over eleven years. Its innovative services include caregiving, from a 15-minute visit up to 24 hour care, Remote Caregiving using the telephone service and electronic monitoring and internet communications, transportation services, medication reminders, bill payment programs, and assistance with Long Term Care Insurance Claims and Collections.
