Ensuring a Life

Penrose checks in on seniors, their quality of life, and their caregivers if they have them, then delivers their reports, along with suggestions and media, to you.

Penrose Check-In Service: Care-Check


While checking-in at your senior's residence, we assess 150 items affecting her or his quality of life.

Care-Check Report

Your Care-Check Report is available immediately in your secure, online account.

Partner Providers

Our independent Partner Providers are background checked and certified.

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

When you sign up you'll provide your contact information and your senior's zip code which will be matched to available Providers. You'll select the one you want.

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

If your senior is in a private residence, you will let the Provider know which day(s) and time(s) your senior is at home and 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

Your Provider will check-in to conduct the Care-Check(s) asap.

Once at your senior’s residence (private or community), your Provider verifies her or his exact location and time of the check-in.

Your Provider will introduce herself or himself, and say something along the lines of, "I'm checking-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.

Get Your Report

Once the Care-Check is complete and while still onsite, your Provider clicks “Submit” and the Penrose App uses a proprietary algorithm to objectively score the Provider's input and generate your Care-Check Report.

You’ll instantly receive an email stating that it is available in your private, online account.

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

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