We all need a pal sometimes. That’s why Papa’s here.
Papa helps health plans and employers connect members and their families to real people for help with companionship, everyday tasks, transportation, and more. It’s vital human connection, right to the front door.
Papa Pals provide vital social support and care to strengthen families, help older adults remain connected, and support diverse communities—providing win-win benefits for all.
Papa gives older adults companionship and support to age in place.
Papa advances equity for populations that have been historically marginalized.
No one’s meant to go it alone. With Papa, “together” is just a call or click away.

Papa members have fewer visits to the hospital and are more likely to receive preventive care—the results add up.
