Dave Jacobs is Co-CEO and Co-founder of Homethrive, a fast-growing, tech-enabled healthcare service company that’s disrupting and revolutionizing how organizations support unpaid family caregivers and their loved ones. Dave has extensive experience as a leader in the healthcare industry. Even so, a personal caregiving experience left him struggling to navigate complicated systems and find the support he needed, making family caregiving far more challenging than anticipated. That's why he co-founded Homethrive: to help other unpaid caregivers and their families identify what they need, when they need it, and who they can trust, because no one should have to go through this alone.
Dave spent fifteen years as a senior executive at Medline Industries, a leading healthcare products company. While at Medline, he was President of the Durable Medical Equipment division and ran Medline’s Post-Acute business that encompasses nursing homes, home health, assisted living, and managed care insurance. While in those roles, Dave developed a deep, first-hand appreciation for the benefits of seniors living independently at home and the many challenges seniors and their family caregivers face.
