This morning, the 2016 What’s Next Boomer Business Summit featured a panel on The Business and Policy of Caregiving, moderated by Laurie Orlov, Founder of Aging in Place Technology Watch & Boomer Health Tech Watch. Panelists included: Nancy LeaMond, Chief Advocacy & Engagement Officer at AARP; David Inns, CEO of Great Call, Inc.; and Sherwin Sheik, CEO of CareLinx.
Panel description: Caregiving matters in 2016. Policy changes are in the works that help the circle of care — family caregivers, care recipients, and care-related services. At the same time, the professional caregiving market, including tech-enabled home care, is booming and has become a new favorite of investors. The result? Older adults stay in their own homes longer and more safely — aging successfully. This session reviews policy, technology and new offerings that make caregiving work.
Later in the day, Kerry Hannon moderated a Breakout Session on How the On-Demand Marketplace Serves the Longevity Economy. Panelists included Bill Johnston of Structure3C, Michael Masserman of Lyft, and CareLinx CEO Sherwin Sheik.
