Franchise Renewals Mean Continued Delivery of Necessary Day Services to Older Adults and Veterans
Blue Island, IL (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Innovative MedTech, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC: IMTH), a provider of health and wellness services, announces today that the Company’s subsidiary, SarahCare®, has renewed the agreements of two SarahCare® franchises.
The renewal agreements, each valid for another five years, enable these independently owned SarahCare® franchise Centers to continue providing comprehensive adult day services. The two franchises are in The Woodlands, Texas, and in Kingwood, Texas. These two Centers provide adult day services in an area where nearly 30% of the population are aged 65 or older and reside within a 20-minute drive or shuttle bus distance to SarahCare® Centers. Daily transportation services for families are provided by the Centers. The Woodlands, Texas community won a Special Award for Excellence in 1994 from the Urban Land Institute and in 2021 was rated the #1 "Best City to Live in America" by Niche.com.
“It is tremendously important for SarahCare to continue to provide daily essential services for older adults, including Veterans – especially during these challenging times. SarahCare Centers fill a gap by providing a critically important option for older individuals and their families: offering daily essential medical needs, and mental and physical stimulation, all offered in a supportive and safe environment that adheres to strict public health protocols. This service option provides much needed daily respite to caregivers, while ensuring families safely regroup each day. Most importantly, these service offerings prevent early and unnecessary nursing home admissions,” stated SarahCare® CEO and President Merle Griff.
