Good service requires empathy. I have personally experienced the challenges involved in finding and providing eldercare. It's vital to find providers who use nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, music, and cognitive stimulation to meet the holistic needs of older adults.
As an expert in senior living and aging services, I offer insider insights, analysis of options, and a penchant for problem-solving, tapping into my broad network of long-term care and aging-service professionals.
As a health and wellness technology start-up advisor, I am drawn to founders who bring deep insights to the formation and vision of their start-ups and the markets they serve. If you're a founder, I offer you thought-leadership and communications expertise. Let's join forces and do our part to heal the world.

Linda Jacobson knows how to help people make life-changing decisions and how to improve life using digital devices. She's devoted her career to helping people understand and benefit from scientific breakthroughs and emerging technology.
Clients appreciate clear, consistent communication honed by Linda's years as an author of “how-to” books and articles -- as a co-founding editor of Wired magazine -- and as a lecturer for SF State University's and UC Berkeley's adult education programs.
Linda also has served as the world's first virtual reality evangelist as well as marketing strategist and project leader for Silicon Graphics, Logitech, Xerox PARC, and Atari.
Linda's interest in cognitive science took hold in the '90s when she studied human perception while working with 3D graphics engineers, Stanford physicians, and NASA researchers to design virtual reality systems for medical education and training. Around that same time, Linda's grandparents developed dementia disorders. They struggled to age with dignity and joy as their memories failed.
These experiences inspired Linda's mission to develop products and services that enhance the joy and well-being of our elders -- and the people who care for them.
