Papa was founded in 2017 when the founder was seeking a new way to bring companionship and positivity to his grandfather. After his grandfather connected with somebody special he knew he had a service that he could offer to families all over the country.
And thus Papa was born….
Papa offers health plans and employers a chance to provide social support to their members. They’re aimed at helping people who suffer from loneliness, isolation, transportation access, healthcare literacy, and more!
Members sign up for Papa through their health plan or place of work. Then members can request a ‘Pal’ for themselves or a loved one. Then a ‘Papa Pal’ arrives to help from anything ranging from car rides to conversation.
What do you think about the potential of Papa and other startups aimed at helping seniors? If you have any questions about startups or are looking for a place to invest, don’t hesitate to drop us a line!
