Loneliness and social isolation can have negative impacts on people’s lives, especially in times of COVID-19 when it’s crucial for seniors to stay safe. Join us in this installment of Pioneers @MDC for a conversation with Andrew Parker, CEO and Founder of Papa, on how he built and developed a platform to support families throughout the aging journey.

Founded in 2016 in Miami, FL, Papa began due to a personal need that Andrew Parker, CEO and Founder of Papa, had with his own family. Recognizing the extreme difficulty associated with juggling daily life and senior family member’s needs, Papa was initially built to support Andrew’s own grandfather. Andrew and his family recognized how impactful and positive it was to connect their grandfather with a young, energetic, and enthusiastic individual. After the first visit, he knew he had something special to offer other families with the same need. Papa pairs older adults and families with Papa Pals for companionship and assistance with everyday tasks. They offer programs to health plans, providers, employers, and consumers.
