Powered by the Penrose Check-In Services App and training, your personally selected service provider will personally check-in on your loved one, whether in private home or senior living community. She or he will objectively assess the 150 most critical items across 7 Quality-of-Life Factors associated with your senior's well-being. Then, your report is immediately placed in your secure online account. Wouldn't you want to know?®
The Carecheck, powered by the Penrose Check-In Services App
The objective Carecheck Report provides you with the information you need to make decisions for your loved-one. Penrose's proprietary Carecheck App prompts providers to assess each of the 150 items as either "Satisfactory" or "Not Satisfactory." Then, the provider can provide suggestions or additional comments. For example, under the factors:
- Senior Well-Being: Item 'social events/outings' - your senior participated in a social event or they didn't
- Safety -Item 'registration sign-in' was required or it wasn't
- Cleanliness - Item 'kitchen floor' is clean or it isn't
- Comfort - Item 'temperature' is comfortable for your senior or it isn't
- Pantry - Item 'hand soap' is in the residence or it isn't
- Maintenance - Item 'faucet' is working correctly or it isn't
- Caregiver/Other Observations - If present, item 'caregiver' was professional, courteous, and respectful or she/he wasn't
The Carecheck App's algorithm calculates your provider's inputs and generates your report. It summarizes your provider's findings in a number of roses, similar to a report card (see above) for quick review. Then, you can pull down each factor to read further details along with images / videos to support findings.
"Mom and I talk by chat, phone, or video every week. But, I never know if she's telling me the truth or what she thinks I want to hear. What concerns me the most is what I can't see, smell or hear. Now I know for sure."
Simple to sign-up. Easy to change.
As a month-to-month subscription service, you can schedule as many Carechecks as you want and change or cancel anytime. Most clients want weekly Carechecks because things change quickly with aging loved-ones and their caregivers. Even 4x a month costs less than 10% of assisted living fees! However, you may want less or more - it's up to you.
You may want to check to see if your longterm care insurance will pay for Carecheck services.

Then, pay by credit or debit card. Your provider is then notified and begins right away. Finally, your report is filed in your account as soon as the Carecheck is completed. Then, you decide what actions, if any, to take.
