Welcome to Episode 39 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast Merrily Orsini, thought leader in care for the aging, talks about the role home health care can play as we plan our lives and take care of older family members. She shares with us her thoughts on how our legacy will be affected by who we’ll be as life ends and what we’ll give back.

The president/CEO of corecubed – a marketing firm dedicated to helping aging care providers grow their businesses – Merrily has extensive marketing expertise in the home health, hospice and home-centered care industries. Her knowledge is particularly relevant as we move forward after the COVID-19 pandemic. And, because corecubed has always been a virtual business, she brings valuable insight into the working-from-home model.

So if you want to know:

  • How the pandemic has affected our thoughts about home care
  • The role technology plays in terms of caring for our older population
  • Why the non-medical, long-term care industry continues to grow
  • Why age is not the relevant factor for long-term care needs
  • About the real question regarding end-of-life care: “How do you want to live?”
