About Us

We are a passionate team of caregivers, supporters, patients, and medical professionals. Our perspective continues to be shaped from all angles of this complex journey. We believe that caregiving in itself is not a problem to be fixed. Family caregiving is one of the most honorable acts of love. The problem is that it’s not supported as well as it should be.

Our mission is to encourage, empower, and equip family caregivers so they can fulfill one of the greatest purposes in life. We advocate for big picture changes while creating tangible support and tools today. Our hope is to shape generations to love and care for one another with humanity and dignity, especially during life’s most vulnerable moments. And we won’t stop until the 43.5 million family caregivers are embraced with the love and support they deserve.


We all have a story

Family caregiving is the backbone of our society. We all have a story. We’ve helped care for a loved one or needed care ourselves.


Caregiving is complex and impacts the whole community.

When one person needs caring, it impacts everyone. There are no scripts, manuals, or timelines. Yet, the more we come together, tell our stories, and share our experiences - the more we can shape how to best care for each other. Caregiving is not meant to be done alone.


Caregiving will touch every single one of us.

Rosalynn Carter says it best:

There are only four types of people - those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregiving.


ianacare is built by family caregivers.

Our team’s deep dedication comes from our own stories. Jessica & Steve, co-founders of ianacare, both experienced the deep impact of family caregiving. “My dad and I were thrust into being full-time caregivers for my loving mom who battled pancreatic cancer for seven years. It was the hardest time for our family - full of unknowns, loneliness, & exhaustion. Yet, it was the greatest honor to love my mom in this way. It changed our lives forever. Our hope is to surround you with practical support & community, so you’re not alone in living out the most honorable acts of love.” - Jessica Kim


We can’t do this alone.

We are dedicated to building tools, advocating for change, and rallying support, but what we each do on an individual level on an everyday basis makes this vision a reality. Join us in showing up - by supporting your loved ones. Join us in speaking up - by sharing your stories. Join us in lifting up - by recognizing others. The world is a better place because of people like you, so let’s do this together!
