Kevin Sypniewski’s AssistGuide is a pioneer in providing long-term care and disability information through the internet. Founded in 1998, the company currently receives more than half a million hits per month with participation of over 400 industry-specific businesses and enlisting 160,000 providers nationwide, making it a leading player in this service realm. AssistGuide ‘connects providers, employers, and governments online to enable consumers to find senior and disability products, services, and support they need’.

Kevin Sypniewski talks about how he has conceptualized AssistGuide and his shift from finance to the Senior & Disability service industry. He also mentions the difficulties currently being faced by long-term care service providers and the positive outlook of the industry pointing to the future needs of the 78 million baby boomers.

“Right now most of us baby boomers are getting that glimpse of what it is like by going through it with our parents.”
