Penrose Check-In Services® was announced as one of the “Fastest growing Entrepreneurial Company in the Dallas area” Tuesday evening at the 26th Annual SMU Cox Dallas 100 Awards Ceremony and Banquet held at the Omni Dallas Hotel, presented by SMU’s Cox School’s Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship. Dallas 100, co-founded by the Caruth Institute, honors the ingenuity, commitment and perseverance of the fastest-growing privately held entrepreneurial businesses in the Dallas area.
Founded in 2014 and now nationwide, Penrose created a new and needed senior care category: Senior Check- Ins. Penrose provides in-person monitoring and assessing of seniors, their quality of life, and their caregivers, and reporting back to families.
“I founded Penrose because I learned that if I didn’t frequently check-in on my aging father in assisted living, many of his services weren’t provided and his needs weren’t met. It resulted in a lowered quality of life for him,” states Rhonda Harper, Penrose Founder, Owner, and CEO. “On behalf of the entire Penrose team, we are proud to be recognized for our services and growth.”
Penrose has been recognized by several organizations in 2016:
• Winner – prestigious 2016 AARP Innovation@50+ nationwide competition
• Top 15 nationwide new companies for seniors by the American Geriatrics Association • Semi-finalist in the global Aging2.0 competition
• Honorable mention in the nationwide Boomer Silicon Valley Summit
“To scale our services to meet nationwide demands, the entire process from client and service provider onboarding to the check-in services and backend financial accounting and reporting is completed using our proprietary software application,” says Ryan Felton, Penrose Chief Technology Officer. “Now we are able to operate the business efficiently and scale rapidly.”
