Cardi/o® by Advanced TeleSensors is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. John Beaman to its Advisory Board, underscoring the company’s momentum in the Senior Care market. Mr. Beaman is the Founder and General Partner of The Bridges Assisted Living Homes located in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas.
“John has a commitment and dedication to providing the best possible solutions to senior care,” asserts CEO Sajol Ghoshal. “His passion for leveraging technology to improve caregiving for his residents is a natural complement to our focus on providing enhanced 24/7 cardiac monitoring for the Assisted Living market.”
Mr. Beaman adds 30 years of industry experience to the Advisory Board. As a former New York City banker in both commercial and investment banking, Mr. Beaman specialized in lending to, and raising capital for, retirement and long-term care homes throughout the nation. His facilities, The Bridges, consists of 92 private rooms in two separate communities with staged levels of care, including Alzheimer/Memory Care. “The values of taking care of our elderly via personalized care, music, art, and technology-based programs are embedded in our staff and throughout our homes,” explains John. “Our resident families place high value on peace of mind as they entrust us with the care of their loved ones, and I think Cardi/o® is a uniquely innovative approach to deliver that value.”
The Bridges boasts the site of the first Cardi/o® monitor system, which has been in beta since the start of this year. Through touchless monitoring of vital signs such as heart rate and respiratory rate, significant rate drops or increases in these values trigger “distress” alerts that are sent to caregivers, empowering them with the right information to administer critical care at the right time.
“It’s a game changer in the senior care market,” says Stephanie Probasco, Director of Marketing. “As the 65+ population continues to expand faster than all other age groups through 2050, the pressure to provide quality care also increases. We are proud to partner with Assisted Living Providers like The Bridges to support the important work that they do for our most beloved, yet vulnerable, population.”
