How The Care-Check Works

During the Penrose Check-In, your Provider will conduct the Penrose Care-Check. It takes about 25 minutes to complete.

Sign Up

We'll match your senior's zip code with available Providers. You'll select the one you want.

If no Providers are available, you will be placed on a Waitlist and we will contact you.

If your senior is in a private residence, you'll set up the days/times she or he is available.

If your senior is in a senior living community, the Provider may conduct the service between the hours of 9am and 7pm.

Provider Check-In

Once at your senior’s residence, your Provider verifies her or his exact location and time of the check-in. Then, she or he will say "I'm here to check-in to make sure everything is okay."

While conducting the Care-Check, she or he will make small talk (all designed to get wellness information) so that your senior feels companionship and that they aren't being interviewed.

The entire Check-In takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.

Get Your Report

Once complete, your Provider clicks “Submit” and the Penrose App uses a proprietary algorithm to score the Provider's input and generate your Report.

You’ll receive an email notifying you that the report is ready.

The Report contains the scored topline along with narrative findings, suggestions, and media attachments.

Then, you decide what, if any, actions to take.
