I am fortunate in that my parents were able to age in their home and manage their own healthcare, but this isn’t the norm. Caring for an elder is difficult, complex and time-consuming. The value that InnovAge provides is immediately understandable, and I am proud to be part of the effort to help seniors age in place.
