At such a young age, Cavaleri has dedicated her life to researching and fighting isolation among older adults. She believes wisdom, from our elders, is the new “big data”. She shares the need to intentionally connect different age groups, identify isolation as an epidemic, and collectively honor, leverage, and value the wisdom of our elders. Listen to her ideas on changing our perception of aging.
Six years ago, Amanda Cavaleri founded Capable Living, a concierge service company for older adults, opening her eyes to the loneliness and isolation faced by many of her clients. After researching the issue, Cavaleri made it her mission to find technological solutions to reconnect and engage older adults into society. In 2014, she co-founded Empower Aging, a multi-disciplinary national leadership team aiming to attract, retain, and grow talent with the Longevity Economy. Cavaleri has spent time speaking with and encouraging both students at the University of Colorado – Denver and local entrepreneurs to connect with older adults and believes that technology can close the age gap and connect different generations. She chairs the PrIME Health Collaborative’s working group on aging, and has been highlighted in the Denver Post and on PBS NewsHour.
