A Brief History

Empowering individuals to thrive where they are is at the forefront of our business. Wellzesta Co-Founder Kyle spent the majority of her career serving seniors and saw opportunity for better connection, communication, and well-being in both the senior living and home care industries.

Wellzesta’s CEO, John, a physician-scientist, had significant experience in medicine and health informatics. By utilizing wellness data through a personalized digital experience, we can improve quality of life and predict health outcomes. Offering senior adults and caregivers a platform with wellness at its core allows people thrive where they are.

The company's name, Wellzesta is a combination of two words: WELLness and ZEST for life.

We are Wellzesta

At Wellzesta, we believe whole-person wellness is possible at any age; uniqueness should be celebrated; staying connected to community strengthens us; and discovering one’s purpose is key to living a “well” life.


Be current

We move fast. Real-time reporting, close ties with media owners, and an instinct for trends means we spot opportunities first — achieving excellent ROI while reaching out to new audiences.

Be relevant

We keep our finger on the pulse of what’s new in technology and translate that knowledge into innovations that benefit our partners. Rather than jumping on bandwagons, we gain insights from trends and use them to create features that stay relevant to users’ lives in the long-term.

Be open

We are committed to honesty and openness with our partners. Receiving feedback from those who use our software is a crucial part of our development process, and we highly value the insights and recommendations that our partners provide.

Be collaborative

“Collaboration is not about gluing together existing egos. It’s about the ideas that never existed until after everyone entered the room.” ~ author unknown.

Be data informed

Data informs strategy. It helps us chart our course and influences how we provide solutions. Through analytics and data insights, we can all make informed decisions.

Be connected

We consider it an honor to act as the catalyst for stronger, more meaningful relationships between members at our partner communities. Interpersonal connectedness is key to a life well-lived.
