Dave Jacobs, a seasoned healthcare leader, combined his vast knowledge of geriatric care and passionate advocacy for senior in-home care to co-found Homethrive, a family caregiving solution that combines expert live assistance and navigation with 24/7 digital resources to help caregivers thrive at work and at home.

His expertise stems from fifteen years as a senior executive at Medline Industries, a $25 billion healthcare products company. There, he developed a firsthand appreciation for the importance of seniors maintaining independence at home and the many challenges faced by them and their family caregivers. Presently, Dave serves on the Board of Directors of a $500 million privately held consumer products company.

With 72% of employees having some caregiving responsibilities, companies are starting to recognize that offering a caregiver support benefit is a must-have for supporting employee wellbeing, productivity, and retention. And the rapidly aging population in the U.S. also combined with many people staying in the workforce longer means that more and more individuals will find themselves caring for a parent, partner, or friend, while also navigating work, life, and even their own health situations. Tune in for our conversation with Dave Jacobs, co-CEO and co-founder of Homethrive, on the complexities of modern caregiving and why it’s time for employers in the U.S. to offer inclusive caregiving benefits.
