How does payment work?
When clients sign up for service, a credit or debit card payment is collected by Penrose for the services to be performed over the following 30 days. At the end of 30-days, Penrose pays the independent service providers for the number of Carechecks completed. If for any reason the total number of Carechecks were not performed, any outstanding balance is refunded to the client within 30 days.
Can I cancel or change my plan?
Yes, at any time. It goes into effect the following the current 30-day period. Otherwise, it auto-renews for the following 30-days. To change or cancel, simply go to your account and click "Edit Senior." Scroll down and change the number of Carechecks for the following month or click cancel.
How do I know if the provider actually visited my loved-one?
When the provider logs into the Penrose App, it automatically geo-locates them during the visit.
How long does a Carecheck take to complete?
Generally, Carechecks take about 20-30 minutes to complete.
When do providers conduct the Carecheck?
If your loved-one is in a private residence, you will let them know which days and day parts they may visit.
If your loved-one is in a senior community, they visit at their discretion.
