ianacare is a next-generation support and navigation platform for family caregivers. Unsupported caregiving is a common and growing issue with heavy costs to individuals and institutions. While over 90% of care happens in the home vs in hospital, virtually all family caregivers (54 million and rapidly increasing in the US alone) are unsupported, untrained, and unpaid. These gaps in caregiver support profoundly decrease the quality of care while contributing to large avoidable costs for healthcare systems and employers.

ianacare is an integrated platform that organizes and mobilizes all the different layers of caregiving support and personalized guidance. Using data-informed and human-centered anthropological design, ianacare partners with major employers and health plans to provide a platform with the resources, education, and team organization needed throughout the complex journey of caring for a loved one. We are leveraging the power of technology and community to establish a new type of care – “I Am Not Alone Care” – to address isolation, gaps in systemic support, and elevate the social determinants of health that impact 80% of health outcomes.
