Bonnie K. Brown:
The Trailblazer Behind
A Better Life - Health & Wellness
Bonnie K. Brown, the innovative founder of A BETTER LIFE®, recently claimed the coveted first prize at the 2017 Florida Pitch Competition, hosted by the esteemed Caregiver Accelerator program.
Endorsed and sponsored by AARP, the Caregiver Accelerator program is designed to nurture and propel startups focusing on the rapidly growing sector of caregiving services and technologies. The objective of the program is straightforward yet monumental: to satisfy the escalating demand for products, technologies, and services that facilitate the daily lives of family caregivers.
Entrepreneurs Unite for Transformative Solutions
Graduates of this transformative program converged from various parts of Florida to present their pioneering business models. In this forum, entrepreneurs had the opportunity to go to meet other like-minded individuals. Each participant aimed to introduce unique solutions to improve the caregiving experience, thereby positively impacting both caregivers and their care recipients.
Target Areas for Innovation
AARP has singled out several key sectors ripe for innovation within the caregiving landscape. These domains include care coordination, well-being, activities of daily living, health and safety support, transitions of care, and support that enhances the quality of life for caregivers.
Why A Better Life - Health & Wellness Stood Out
The judges were unanimous in their praise for A BETTER LIFE®. Bonnie's comprehensive Educational Training & Coaching Programs, along with her functional Medical Organizer and a specialized "GO" Bag, provided practical solutions that modern-day caregivers desperately need.
Bonnie's Reaction to the Win
"I am incredibly honored and thrilled to be chosen as the Judge’s Choice Winner for the Caregiver Accelerator’s Pitch Competition," Bonnie proclaimed. "Caregiving is perhaps one of the most mentally, emotionally, and physically taxing jobs. Knowing that my range of products and services can alleviate some of these challenges is profoundly satisfying."
The Underlying Philosophy
Bonnie firmly believes that caring for those who once took care of us is among the most significant honors one can receive. Her ultimate mission is to empower caregivers with the essential tools and skills needed to navigate the labyrinthine medical and long-term care systems effectively.
A Personal Perspective
Bonnie is no stranger to medical complexities. Having gone through eight significant surgeries within just an 11-year timeframe, she understands the immense challenges caregivers face. Her own experiences led her to create the Self-Advocacy System™, a method she has successfully employed for over 15 years as a professional Medical Advocate.
The Core Offerings
Bonnie's exclusive "8 Ways to Wellness" framework and her comprehensive "10 Essentials for Healthcare Navigation" are designed to facilitate caregivers in achieving the best possible medical outcomes throughout the various stages of life. These tools aim to ensure both high-quality and affordable care for all parties involved.
