As parents age, there are myriad challenges to navigate - from healthcare, insurance, financial and legal matters to home health care, transportation and socialization. This problem is immense as there are more than 53 million family caregivers in the United States and more than 61% of them are working (AARP & National Alliance for Caregiving).

Mellie supports family caregivers by providing them with a dedicated care coordinator who is experienced in the field of elder care, as well as an all-in-one software platform to plan, manage and collaborate on care for any family caregiver in need.
"As a family caregiver myself, I am intimately familiar with the challenges and stress involved in caregiving," said Deborah Fine. "Mellie has a truly innovative approach to providing a critical service - to employers, health plans and individuals who are in desperate need of help. I am thrilled to be joining their team of advisors to help the millions of people who need a resource like Mellie."
