Cover Story

Future of Caregiving is Here

Written by Joe Cellucci, Founder & CEO, Xverity, Inc.

Support for care-dependent older adults has basically remained unchanged and largely disjointed for generations. The usual care circle has included a physician who diagnoses and prescribes medications and unpaid family member(s), possibly supplemented with professional home health and social care aides who help with daily needs and routine tasks. Traditionally, there has been little or no communication among them often resulting in confusion and conflicting care protocols.

Member Success Story

Carl Guarino, CEO, WizeHive; Mentor Connect Mentor

“Mentor Connect has been important to me on several levels: I enjoy the networking with some of the region's most accomplished CEOs/entrepreneurs who participate as mentors in the program; I love getting briefed on up-and-coming companies and founders/ ceo's in the area who are admitted into the program; and I really find working with capable and committed CEOs in a trusted/mentoring relationship very rewarding. As an unexpected benefit, I have discovered that helping other CEOs with the core issues they face - and hearing the input of fellow mentors - also provides me with valuable perspective I can come back and utilize in the Company I lead.”
