About Thrive

Designed Around the Issues That Matter

Thrive will be focused on memory care - dementia and cognitive fitness. The technology partners, multimedia experiences, and programming are all built around a key theme that impacts the aging population.  For its debut, Thrive will be focused on memory care and memory loss.  

The center will demonstrate cutting edge technology combined with a clinical approach that is geared toward improving the quality of life for those affected by memory issues, like Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Through an initial capital grant from the Kentucky Economic Development Cabinet and Louisville Metro, the Thrive Center was launched. The Center convenes consumers, researchers, entrepreneurs and service providers for the purpose of accelerating innovation and promoting improved outcomes in challenges faced by the aging population in Kentucky and across the world.

The Thrive Center’s vision is to transform the quality of life and quality of care through connecting innovators with the aging care population. Together, we can build a community that thrives!
