BECLOSE ADDS A NEW 24/7 NURSE CALL SERVICE
Metro Washington, DC (March 16, 2011) BeClose, the new wireless technology used to provide caregivers with at-home monitoring while providing additional oversight to aging adults, today announced a unique offering for the aging-in-place health care marketplace: BeClose NurseNow™, a 24/7 service whereby caregivers and the residents they serve can receive over-the-phone advice from registered nurses.
Adding NurseNow to the BeClose menu of options extends the product's mission of providing reassurance to seniors and their caregivers. BeClose NurseNow is a system for residents and caregivers allowing them the reassurance of speaking with a trained health professional, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; BeClose gives caregivers the reassurance of knowing that their senior loved ones are safe and going about their routines 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
BeClose.com is a simple system to connect caregivers with their senior or disabled loved ones who are aiming to live safely in their own homes. The system has a base station and wireless sensors that give caregivers a private web dashboard, and real-time alerts via email and cell phone text messaging if a routine hasn't been followed—for instance, if no one has gotten out of bed by 9 AM.
"NurseNow is an important addition to the BeClose offering, and a first among firms such as ours that sell devices to enable aging-in-place," said Liddy Manson, President of BeClose.com. "With a toll free phone call, our customers can now access advice from a nurse any time of day or night, all with the purpose of living healthy and happy longer, and with more peace of mind."
Combined with a BeClose monitoring system, familial caregivers can take advantage of two aspects of oversight: The use of digital monitors to let them know that the resident is going about his or her normal routines, and the ability to call a registered nurse if any questions arise—potentially saving them an inconvenient or uncomfortable trip to the doctor's office.
The BeClose NurseNow offering is part of the monthly service cost, which is as low as $49 per month. BeClose sells its systems in all 50 states, via its ecommerce store or over the phone.
"My elderly aunt had some worrisome minor health issues that kept cropping up, and a trip to the doctor is never easy to schedule and make happen," says Susan Oertle, a BeClose customer in Providence, RI. "But with a ten minute call to the NurseNow service, my aunt got her concerns alleviated, and never had to leave the house. I also like the fact that I can call on her behalf, too."
