SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – July 20, 2015 – SameAddress, a first-of-its-kind, one-source service providing contemporary and comprehensive lifestyle solutions for seniors who live at home, is now available to consumers throughout several Southeast Michigan counties. The launch announcement was made by Tina Abbate Marzolf, CEO of both SameAddress, and Area Agency on Aging 1-B (AAA 1-B), its parent company.
An innovative aging solution for today’s growing senior population, SameAddress delivers safety, daily living, personal care and medical monitoring services that allow seniors to remain comfortably and confidently in their own homes. SameAddress provides a centralized, trusted source for any service needed to manage the health and comfort of seniors residing in Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw counties, with plans in place to expand geographically.
“AAA 1-B has been in the business of caring for seniors for more than 40 years, and one thing we’ve learned for sure along the way is that most seniors want to remain living at home for as long as possible,” said Abbate Marzolf. “If you’re a senior supported by government-funded programs, AAA 1-B is here to provide you the resources to help make that desire a reality…but until the creation of SameAddress, there wasn’t a one-stop solution for the private pay senior population seeking a trusted, comprehensive and simplified service for in-home needs.”
SameAddress offers two primary categories of comprehensive services – Senior Concierge and Senior Care. For seniors with an active lifestyle, Senior Concierge provides added freedom and convenience. With one phone call or the push of a button, a SameAddress concierge can conveniently arrange for more than 30 personalized services, including household chores, home repairs or safety improvements and even assistance with tax returns or legal advice. Additionally, Senior Concierge provides the added reassuring safety benefit of 24/7 emergency response.
SameAddress Senior Care is designed for the senior who wants to remain at home, but may need help to remain independent. The Senior Care solution starts with both a home assessment and individual care assessment, designed to evaluate the safety, security, comfort and convenience features of a seniors’ residence, and their personal health and well being. From there, an individual plan is developed to provide the best possible daily lifestyle. SameAddress Senior Care offers personalized in-home services, comparable to assisted living, including: personal care, medical monitoring, telehealth, respite, transportation and more.
“While costs will vary depending on individual plans, a Care Solution is an affordable option that can meet the daily living needs of the senior and help them stay living in their own home,” said Abbate Marzolf.
A unique value also offered by SameAddress is dCare, a web-based, data-driven dashboard, which helps families monitor a loved one’s health. Designed to make it easier to share important information regarding the senior they care for, dCare creates peace of mind and simplifies communication for family wherever they are located. dCare allows seniors and their caregivers to see what services have been scheduled and for when, as well share important health-related documents, like the healthcare assessment. Upcoming features for dCare include telehealth data, helping families monitor the statistics most relevant to their loved one’s health in near real time.
Headquartered in Southfield, Mich., SameAddress is a social enterprise program of the non-profit AAA 1-B, which has been providing services to thousands of SE Michigan seniors annually for more than 40 years. AAA 1-B and SameAddress share leadership and other expert resources, and SameAddress’ profits are used to provide support for select AAA 1-B programs.
