recommendations for market entry

Adult Daycare Centers

In addition to the adult day care industry being in the growth stage of its life cycle, these centers offer fewer concerns around monitoring personal bedrooms/bathrooms and less pushback from facility management and staff




Memory Care facilities have the largest need for monitoring services and deliver the best value add for the family members who are the main decision makers when choosing and enrolling their loved ones into these facilities. 


Senior Living Affiliations

It's recommended to look at adult daycare centers that have current affiliations with 24/7 senior living facilities. This will allow for an easy shift into senior living once the trust and benefits are realized within the adult daycare center. 


Geographic Concentration

The highest concentration of adult daycare centers is in 6 states CA, NY, MO, TX, PA, FL) and the largest overlap between these states and WatchMeGrows capabilities exist in Texas and Florida.

How might WatchMeGrow aid adult daycare centers in providing caretakers genuine peace of mind without threatening facility or staff professionalism?


Bonus: How might WatchMeGrow facilitate desired connection and promote the value of transparency through these efforts?

The act of reminiscing can help evoke positive memories and calming feelings and can even reduce feelings of stress and agitation.
