New Westshore business helps retirees thrive

Thrive Westshore members relax with a jigsaw puzzle after a summer lunch.

On Sept. 5, Thrive Westshore arrived in Cleveland's western suburbs.

Headquartered in Bay Village, Thrive Westshore's mission is to provide the services, activities and social opportunities of a retirement village to residents who have chosen to remain in the houses and neighborhoods they love.

Essential services provided include: help with errands; fresh, delicious dinner delivery; regular check-ins; and – importantly – note-taking at doctors' appointments. Volunteering and activities at BAYarts, Westlake Rec Center, and other local resources are encouraged and arranged by company staff.

"Getting out, and staying connected and engaged, is critical for retirees who really hope to thrive as they age," said founder Mike Nock. "But everybody needs a partner, including the families and loved ones of retirees. Thrive Westshore provides that assistance."

According to Nock, Thrive Westshore's prime asset is its entirely local staff of parents — college-educated professionals returning to the workforce as their kids grow up. "Our team is precisely who I would want assisting my parents as they age," Nock said. "They're bright, fun, energetic and personable, and they understand the importance of treating our members with dignity and affection."

Thrive Westshore’s offerings are customized for each member. Its most popular package includes two weekly dinners, two monthly doctors appointments, weekly errands and check-ins, a monthly outing and activity planning.

There’s also a daily meal and check-in package for recently discharged patients. Through October, the company is offering an a la carte option for those interested in sampling the Thrive Westshore experience.
