A Denver-based startup helps connect the elderly with assisted-living facilities.

|

Before moving into a new house, you’d likely spend months searching for digs suited to your specific needs. Finding an assisted living home for an aging parent tends to be less methodical: 90 percent of those making their first transitions to assisted living need to find housing within a week or two. Enter Mimi, a Denver-based startup that matches small assisted living facilities (which average 10 beds) with potential residents through a quick online assessment. Answer 15 questions about your loved one (Is your father diabetic? Does your mother need two or more people to help her out of bed?) via the HIPAA-compliant site, and it’ll return vetted results that fit your criteria and are within four miles of your chosen location. Then book your tours directly through Mimi—a no-hassle way to make sure Mom’s new space is up to her exacting standards.
