From prestigious awards to thought-leader pieces in national media outlets, Medical Guardian is making a splash in the PERS industry.
CEO Geoff Gross named "Senior Savior" from The Philadelphia Citizen
Geoff Gross, CEO and founder of Medical Guardian, was dubbed the "Senior Savior" from The Philadelphia Citizen, a nonprofit, non-partisan media organization that aims to offer journalism that emphasizes solutions and actively reignite citizenship in and around Philadelphia.
In its April edition, the online publication featured Gross in its Generation Change Philly series. In the article, Gross was selected for his innovative, mission-driven success in care and protection of aging Americans. Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Gross started Medical Guardian to protect his grandmother because she began to fall as she aged. He created a medical alert device for her to wear and eventually shared it with his other grandmother, who then became one if his biggest advocates.
The Philadelphia Citizen series seeks to identify innovators and highlight the next generation of Philly leadership—all while giving Philadelphians the tools needed to become more involved, engaged citizens.
This is an area in which Gross excels.
The medical alert devices that Medical Guardian designs and sells are currently protecting more than 300,000 Americans. While the devices are made for various lifestyles, they all carry the life-saving ability to call for help, 24/7, with either the press of a button or, with some devices, through automatic fall detection. This ensures those who live alone can reach help with the push of a button.
According to the article, Pew Research Center reports that 27% of adults aged 60 and older live alone, yet a 2020 survey by the Senior List reports that merely 8% of seniors believe they need an alert device.
The article digs deeper into Gross' mission-driven entrepreneurial vision, the future of his company, and more. To read the Philadelphia Citizen article, click here: https://bit.ly/3JhDJqW
