1. Easing the Caregiver Burden with Maxwell Cohen, Founder & CEO of Peel Away Labs willGather 25:52

At times we overlook practical tools that make our life easier. They’re simple yet impactful. Families want simple tips to help ease their burden and fight Caregiver burnout.  I came across a lot of questions around incontinence and bedding in the different Caregiver groups that I’m a part of- this piqued my interest in talking about incontinence and products that can make life a little bit easier. Lessening the Caregiver load is something we all need as were caring for a loved one. Most people over 65 will have some obstacles when it comes to incontinence. In fact, in the year 2030, there will be roughly around 58 million caregivers. Most people want to age in their home and a common driver for a loved one Moving into a senior living community is needing support with incontinence. Simple products can ease the caregivers’ burden and offer opportunities to remain aging in the home. 

Realizing how valuable a conversation and product around incontinence and bedding is led me to my conversation with Maxwell Cohen. He is the founder and CEO of Peel Away Labs, a new alternative to traditional bedding.  Peel Aways Labs has an international presence and was named 2021 Caregiver Friendly Product of the Year by Caregiver.com, Peelaways increases Dignity and Confidence when caring for a loved one. The idea for waterproof disposable sheets came to him when he was in college then grew when he came home for a visit with his Grandma. Her need for support and maintained dignity after surgery led Maxwell to expand his product and reach our older adult population.
