We are so excited to share that CarePenguin is now available to purchase on Best Buy’s website! This is a huge milestone for our company and we couldn’t ask for a better partner than Best Buy.
Why CarePenguin’s partnership with Best Buy will be awesome
Best Buy is dedicated to serving the aging population and making the home a safe place to age independently. Best Buy offers a suite of products for the aging population including hearing aids, vision aids, home and bath safety products, mobility products, companion pets, and smart home solutions. We are honored to have CarePenguin sold alongside other home health products and assistive technology at Best Buy
Best Buy’s most notable step in the direction of aging and disability was their acquisition of GreatCall (now Lively) in 2018. Lively offers 24/7 emergency services, fall detection devices, and cell phones designed for older adults that are easy to use.
Best Buy Health
Best Buy Health is an initiative to help organizations such as senior living communities to make home the center for better health.
According to their website, “Best Buy Health uses tech-enabled human interactions to transform the home into a site of care. We’re a team of social care experts who provide around-the-clock support, getting to know your customers individually and filling the gaps in the continuum of care. Our professionals build trust through warm and meaningful interactions, creating a richer, comforting care experience that meets each person’s unique needs.” (Best Buy)
Best Buy offers a variety of products and services for aging in place as well as the Geek Squad to install these devices in older adults’ homes. Family members caring for elderly loved ones can feel at ease knowing they won’t have to walk their parent through an installation process over the phone, but rather have the Geek Squad doing those installations for them. In addition, this will allow Best Buy to curate individual aging products and services bundles for each unique customer.
Best Buy shares CarePenguin’s values in empowering older adults to remain independent as they age while also providing peace of mind to their family members.
We want to give a huge thank you to our investors, our stakeholders, beta testers, customers, friends and family, and social media followers for supporting us on our journey. We are excited for CarePenguin’s partnership with Best Buy and what the future holds for us.
