Virtual Companion


About Us:

It started with a struggle: Homethrive’s two founders both experienced the challenges of caregiving for family members while working. They found a confusing, hard to navigate system. They got sucked into the Google rabbit hole in the search for answers and directions. Even after taking countless days off work and spending long hours on the phone, they couldn’t find the answers they needed. They knew there had to be a better way.

So, they created Homethrive. We are transforming family caregiving and leading the way to better outcomes for caregivers, their loved ones, and their respective health plans. Homethrive’s personal caregiving coach and assistant provides the knowledge, recommendations, and support that our members need, all in one interactive tool.
