The Future is in the Home

Two hands holding a model of a house.

It’s no secret to anyone in the longevity space, the future is in the home. It’s where 9 out of 10 older adults want to age. It’s where an estimated $265 billion of care will be delivered by 2029. Healthcare companies know that bringing care to the home improves outcomes. Yet, the shortage of healthcare […]

2021 in Review

A collage of pictures of older people.

2021 has come to a close and while the year certainly had its challenges, all-in-all it was a great year for Naborforce! We expanded to 6 new markets. We raised $2.5MM in new capital. We significantly grew our employee count. And our revenue grew by over 300%! We made more connections than ever — we completed […]

FOOD, for LIFE

An older man and a young boy are preparing vegetables in the kitchen.

Food ~ a love-hate relationship. Food is essential for living your best healthy life. We ensure our kids are eating healthy for proper growth by studying labels and ingredients on items at the store, making sure there is a vegetable on the plate, and eating from a colorful variety of foods. This often changes as […]

What is the ideal age to retire? Never.

(This week’s BLOG POST is an excerpt from an Idea.TED.com post) If you want to live a satisfying, long life, neuroscientist Daniel Levitin has some advice for you: Stay busy. What is the ideal age to retire? Never. Even if you’re physically impaired, it’s best to keep working, either in a job or as a […]

Lock Out Encore

Stainless steel door knob for sale in san diego, california.

Have you got one of these? It’s a doorknob with a lock on the inside (privacy lock) usually found on bathroom or bedroom doors.  This one happens to be the door to our powder room. My LO inadvertently locked it. Fortunately, he was on the outside. The little hole you see is a safety mechanism […]

Got Vaccine? Now What?

With vaccines finally being distributed across the country, many Americans are eager to stop wearing masks and return to normal life. Some may be tempted to rush out to see friends and family, even after receiving just the first dose. Remember, the vaccine does not produce antibodies until approximately two weeks after being received. But […]

Kindness: A Key to Longevity

Two children sitting on a log in a park.

“The key to our success is not the survival of the fittest, it’s survival of the friendliest.” That quote from Jamil Zaki, neuroscientist and associate psychology professor at Stanford, could not express it any better. At 106, Betty Lowe is definitely a survivor and still going strong. She volunteers at a local hospital in Greater […]

Connection, the Antidote to Loneliness

An elderly woman leaning out of a window.

Connection is an incredibly powerful word. Before COVID-19, many people may have taken it for granted or failed to consider how fundamental it is in our lives. Forming connections and bonds with others is the essence of humanity. It fills our soul, it grounds us and helps us feel a part of the larger community. […]

O Christmas Tree

A christmas tree decorated with ornaments.

Growing up, holidays were a big deal in the Hunnicutt household. No matter how small the occasion, my parents went out of their way to turn them into a celebration, each with its own traditions designed to make us feel special and loved.  As in many families, it was my mother who was mistress of […]

Holiday Traditions

Holiday tradition is deep rooted in the Barden household. My mom’s birthday is on Christmas Eve and each year that makes Christmas time more special. She is from an Italian family and grew up with the family tradition of eating an assortment of Italian food, including pasta and cannoli’s, on both Christmas Eve and Christmas […]

Holiday Memories

This holiday season looks very different from years past. However, in the crevices of my mind, I can reignite my own memories of Christmases past. All these memories are in focus and predominantly involve my mom. She epitomized the proverb of “it’s better to give than to receive.”  She always searched for the perfect gift, […]

Tangible and Intangible Marks Left Behind

Contributed by Nabor Amy Brachman Last night, Bebe and I were talking about sending holiday cards. And how losing her sight has made it so that she really doesn’t send them anymore. And I was telling her about my friend Art. And how some of my favorite days spent together were going through his book. […]

A Different Kind of Thanksgiving

A family sits at a thanksgiving dinner table.

Holidays always come with some level of drama built-in. A year ago, it was, “what embarrassing question is Aunt Bertha going to ask this year?” “Will Uncle Harry drink too much?” “Are Emily and Brent ever going to get married?” And surely, let’s not talk politics! But this current pandemic has ushered in a whole […]

Fostering Connections

Two women wearing face masks in front of a car.

In March, when news spread of a nationwide lockdown, and the need to quarantine and self-isolate, it was a lot to grasp.  The idea of isolating yourself at home likely felt lonely and like the last thing you’d want to do. After all, we are social creatures, and often it’s our family, friends, and community […]

Strong-Willed Parent?

A young girl leaning over a stack of books.

You may remember your toddler exclaiming, “I do it myself!” From a very young age, they yearned for their own space and independence. Now, you hear your parents protest that they don’t need help; they demand their independence. It’s only natural. It’s human nature. But is independence the holy grail that we all seek? Turns […]

Care Comes in Many Forms

Four baby birds in a nest in a wooden box.

“Care” is an interesting word – it’s both a noun and a verb. We can care about someone and we can care for someone, and it’s really hard to do one without the other. When someone tries to care for someone without actually caring about them, it turns into nothing more than a task, with […]

Feeling the Squeeze?

A family eats breakfast in front of a clock.

Feeling the squeeze? No wonder. The “Sandwich Generation” — women and men aged 45-54 who are balancing the demands of growing children and aging parents — report the highest level of stress of any age group. When you add in distance between relatives, divorce, familial discord, and now COVID-19, the stress level goes even higher! […]

Simon Sinek and the Theory of Why

A group of people smiling in a circle.

I was recently reflecting on Simon Sinek’s “Start with Why” as it relates to leadership and instilling WHY in your culture. Our WHY is very clear – Naborforce was founded to bring joy to older adults. It underlies everything we do and will be integral to our culture as we continue to grow. “People don’t […]
