Sentry Telecare Establishes Partnering Program to Market Telephone Check-in and Personal Emergency Response Service
Date:11/13/2007

VICTORIA, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ - Critically compelling is the only way to describe the unsolicited testimonial received this month by Sentry Telecare:

"Unfortunately we had another seizure episode on Sunday. Because of

your service we were there within about 30 minutes took her to the

hospital and she is already home as of yesterday evening. Your service

has been a life saver for her. A life alert button would never work

for her because when she has an episode she has no idea of where she is

or what her name is. Thanks so much. George"

The service to which George, who resides on the U.S. east coast, is referring is a subscription-based, automated telephone check-in and personal emergency response service, also referred to as the tele-checkin and medical alert service. It was designed specifically to support independent living and eldercare. The service includes regularly scheduled automated telephone calls to people who live alone and to confirm that they do not need immediate assistance. If the recipient of the check-in call does not acknowledge the call, a protocol for contacting a designated responsible person who can check on the client, or arrange emergency attendance, is set in motion. "The service provides peace of mind to both the person receiving the check-in call and the persons with caregiving interests," said Jon Constable, president of Sentry Telecare.

Features of the Sentry Telecare service include:

- an emergency response even if the check-in call recipient is

unconscious or disoriented

- the use of only the client's existing telephone with no additional

equipment

- no pendant or bracelet to wear

- no sign-up or installation charges to commence the service

Current pricing for all new Canadian and United States clients is $18.50 a month to receive a potentially life-saving daily check-in telephone call.

Sentry Telecare is considering expressions of partnering interest from qualified not-for-profit and for-profit organizations. Pre-qualifying criteria include an established interest in the sixty-five plus age group or the caregiving industry. The most current census data indicate that more than 10 million senior North Americans live alone. Sentry Telecare, Inc. is a private company with operations based in Victoria, B.C. Its website may be visited at http://www.sentrytelecare.com.

Sentry Telecare, Inc. recently announced it has entered into agreements with the Victoria and Duncan, British Columbia, branches of We Care Home Health Services based in Toronto. Under the terms of the agreements, the We Care branches have acquired the exclusive right to sell the Sentry Telecare telephone check-in and personal emergency response service to residents of southern Vancouver Island. We Care will market the tele-checkin and medical alert service under the brand name WE-TELECARE.
