Healthcare Achievement Awards 2020

Trailblazer Award - Individual finalist

Evan DuBro, founder and CEO, Our Family Home

Evan DuBro founded Our Family Home in 2007 based on a belief that small homes, well-trained staff and connection-based care could make a difference in dementia care. The model runs counter to the one-size-fits-all, large facility model.

Here are Columbus CEO’s Healthcare Achievement Award winners and finalists for 2020. Inspiring stories ahead.

“I believed that smaller homes in residential neighborhoods would create a sense of warmth, familiarity and community for our residents and that providing two caregivers for five residents would dramatically change the level of care and attention,” DuBro says.

“I was determined to change the model of care for people affected by memory disease, because I wasn’t just starting a business, I was creating a home for my mom. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2005 and was a resident in my first house.”
