Medical Alert Systems and Safety Measures Enable Aging Seniors to Live Life with Dignity and Comfort

ROCKVILLE, Md. – (Jan. 26, 2016) –  BlueStar HonorCare, a veteran-owned-and-operated company committed to providing technology to assist senior veterans to live safe and independent lives at home, has teamed up with the American Legion Department of Illinois. The partnership will enable BlueStar HonorCare to reach Illinois’ Legion of military service members and educate them on the options available to ‘age in place’ through the aid of medical alert systems.

“We’re thrilled to work with the American Legion Department of Illinois to share how BlueStar HonorCare helps provide peace of mind to aging veterans and their families,” said Rear Admiral Robert O. Wray, Jr. (ret.), CEO of BlueStar HonorCare. “Medical alert devices save lives and with nearly 350,000 Illinois veterans 65 years and older[1], it’s our goal to serve them and their families as they’ve served our country.”

BlueStar HonorCare provides medical alert systems and other health and safety monitoring services that range from a simple call button that works within the home to the company’s newest product, Admiral Protect, a medical alert device with GPS technology and intuitive fall-detection capability. BlueStar HonorCare integrates hardware and software that’s easy to operate and incorporate into any lifestyle. All of BlueStar’s devices are monitored by a call center staffed with certified EMTs to assist seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

“It’s a great opportunity for the American Legion Department of Illinois to join efforts with BlueStar HonorCare to share critical safety information with our members – whether they’re in an aging senior category or they have a family member in that age-group, said Marty Conatser, Department Adjutant, American Legion Department of Illinois.

BlueStar HonorCare was founded by Robert Wray in 2013 who comes from a family of veterans. In fact, his parents are a retired Air Force couple in their 80s that live on their own. “My dad says he’s only leaving their house feet-first,” said Wray with a smile. “My goal in starting BlueStar HonorCare was to make sure veterans and their spouses – like he and my mother – enjoy healthy and safe retirement years.”
