Founder of Our Family Home Advocating for Better Alzheimer’s Care

Evan DuBro presenting at TEDxColumbusSalon

Evan DuBro is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Our Family Home. He is a long-time member of the Alzheimer’s Association and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Central Ohio Chapter. He was a member of the Association’s Advocacy Committee, where he lobbied for increased funding for Alzheimer’s research and better care, before recently joining the Care and Support Committee.

Working in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, Evan has become a trusted speaker on topics relating to Alzheimer’s and dementia care, such as:

  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Understanding the basics of dementia
  • Finding the right home: navigating the murky waters of memory care
  • The reality of caregiver stress

This past August, Evan shared in his first TEDx talk the journey that led him to create Our Family Home. After caring for his grandparents and later his own mother as they battled Alzheimer’s disease, Evan decided he wanted to change the way we care for those affected by memory diseases. In 2007, Evan founded Our Family Home believing that small homes, well-trained staff and connection-based care could change the way we care for seniors with memory disease.

Evan has also been a guest lecturer and speaker in various industry and community groups, including recently being chosen as a guest on “The Retirement Trainer Podcast” where he had a candid conversation with host, Ed Siddell, about his personal connection to Alzheimer’s and navigating long-term care planning.

Evan’s connection to Alzheimer’s and memory care diseases have affected him personally and that’s why he continues to advocate for better care and Alzheimer’s Awareness.   Please contact us today if you would like Evan to speak at one of your upcoming events.
