ELDERLUXE Founder, Patrick Conboy
Patrick Conboy first glimpsed the future of ELDERLUXE® and his idea to Age Well© back during his later teen years, while delivering pharmaceuticals, novelties, walking canes, walkers and other aids to daily living & home medical equipment for a local pharmacy in his hometown of Palestine, Texas. Spending hours with those convalescing and rehabilitating taught him that age-related issues can hamper an otherwise happy senior adult lifestyle.
Further, he soon recognized that those who remained most active in their personal daily activities tended to live a more vibrant, healthy and happy life as a result. He applied what he learned in those days to help his own parents as they aged, and ultimately dedicated his life to furthering his cause to Age Well© with his retail store, ELDERLUXE.
Prior to creating the ELDERLUXE® enterprise, Mr. Conboy was a Vice-President in the marketing and planning department during the turnaround of JCPenney 1999-2004 and prior to that he directed the advertising activities for a variety of clients while at Foote, Cone & Belding, Chicago.
He has served on a number of boards, including:
Board Member: International Council on Active Aging (ICAA)
Board Member: Global Retail Marketing Association (GRMA)
Board Member to 2013: Notre Dame Club of Chicago
Former Board of Directors Dallas 2012 Olympic Committee (2002)
Founding Board Member Texas (Lone Star) Academy of Television Arts and Sciences-The EMMY awards(2003)
