Send Me An Angel(TM) Pairs Senior Citizens With Their Peers in Alternative Care
Date:4/11/2008

New program provides concierges companionship that goes beyond caretaking

SAN FRANCISCO, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Send Me An Angel(TM) Inc., a new company that provides individualized care services customized for ailing parents and grandparents today announced it will launch its most innovative service for providing care to senior citizens. The new service will offer concierges who will provide engaging one-on-one experiences for seniors on an ongoing basis. Additionally, the concierges will facilitate helping their clients participate in special occasions, which under normal circumstance they wouldn't be able to do.

"Our objective is to be an adjunct to the regular care options that already exist for ailing seniors: we go beyond care. Our clients will be paired with their own peers or people with similar backgrounds and experiences who have a desire and the sensitivity to spend quality time with seniors who are withdrawing because of their physical maladies. Our concierges are not just hourly workers who look at this as a job they are true professionals, focused on creating experiences that will become the highlight of our client's day," said Saunders, CEO of Send Me an Angel, Inc.

To celebrate the launch of Send Me An Angel(TM) Sunrise Senior Services Living will hold a reception at their community on Saturday, April 12th from 1:30 to 3:30 PM in the afternoon at 2175 Ygnacio Valley Rd., Walnut Creek, CA 94998. Saunder's will share her story and that of Send Me an Angel(TM) in person. Hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served in an atmosphere of healing, gratitude and celebration.

Saunders' journey and the founding of Send Me An Angel(TM) were personal. It began when her mother started experiencing fainting spells. The rapid decline in her health was overwhelming. "One day I dropped her off after a busy day of shopping, and the next day, she was lost in her own garage, having trouble finding her way to the stairs. Soon she was spending all her time in her bedroom, her health and vitality started crumbling before me. I was determined to rescue my mother, normally as busy self reliant go getter from the misery of what had become a lonely existence. I was determined she would not become a prisoner in her own home. In fact, we designed Send Me An Angel(TM) to work with very ill people, people suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's, like my mother, but also for older people who are just tired, suffering from milder maladies, simply depressed or just basically alone."

"In all my fifteen years now of long term care experience, especially in my involvement as activities and care director, I always looked for something new, something that would turn the tables on the conventional aging experience," said Pepper Bell, director of Sunrise Senior Living. "Alexandra Saunders' Send Me An Angel(TM) was like being thirsty and getting a little, unexpected shower. We wanted to be part of the launch of this amazing project."

"What makes us unique is that our concierges are educated professionals whose background, education and interests matches our client's," said Saunders. "Our services are relationship, not hourly, based. Our strategy is to enable our clients to stay connected with their family and friends, irrespective of the distance or physical challenges. All of the minutiae are arranged on behalf of the clients and their adult children, keeping at the forefront the quality of the experience," Saunders added.
