Unpacked with Papa

Mike Eidsaune, CEO of Caregiving.com, tells us why the growing hospital-at-home trend is a hot-button issue for him and tens of millions of family caregivers across the country. Rather than gloss over this last-mile of care, Mike outlines the steps we must take to guide, empower, and elevate family caregivers as meaningful participants in their loved ones’ care teams, and in the process, create a force multiplier never before seen.


About the speaker

Mike Eidsaune is the CEO of Caregiving.com, an ecosystem and platform that helps caregivers and their loved ones live more fulfilling lives throughout their care journey. Mike’s vision is inspired by personal caregiving experiences where he saw a real need to help caregivers and their families. He began in 2013 by co-founding a mobile app, Carely, which was built to provide families with a communication tool to keep all members updated and more engaged in their loved one’s care. After nearly a decade of building that platform, he and his team turned their focus to Caregiving.com in order to provide information, tools, and resources that caregivers can utilize to help themselves and their loved ones. Prior to committing himself to family caregiving, Mike earned his MBA in finance and spent several years in the investment management industry, earning his Level 1 CFA certification. Mike, his wife, and their four sons live in Dayton, Ohio, where they homeschool their boys and are also an active foster family.
