Lindsay Jurist-Rosner was just nine years old when her mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Over twenty-five years of caregiving later, she co-founded Wellthy with software developer Kevin Roche to help families with the seemingly endless number of healthcare-related tasks. In today’s show Lindsay talks about the stages of her mom’s MS and how caring for her in a more hands-on way after college affected her personally and professionally. She also explains how Wellthy care coordinators work directly with families, what the service costs and how the company is courting employers to offer the concierge service as part of its benefits package. Lindsay recently used her own company to find a home health aide for her mother, allowing them to enjoy mother-daughter time in a whole new way.
