ianacare is an integrated platform for family caregivers that organizes and mobilizes all the layers of support. Coordinate help with friends & family, utilize employer benefits, discover local resources, and get personalized guidance from caregiving coaches.* Our mission is to encourage, empower and equip family caregivers with the tools and communities, so no caregiver does it alone.
The first layer of support is rallying personal social circles (friends, family, coworkers, neighbors) to help with practical needs (meals, rides, respite care, child care, pet care, house errands). Keep everyone updated in a private feed where your community can send you a ‘hug’ and provide emotional support throughout the journey.
Whether you are caring for a loved one with long-term illness/disability, short-term surgery, or life transition (having a baby, grieving, adoption/fostering), ianacare is built to create and coordinate the support system of people who want to help you. Don’t do it alone!
IANA = I Am Not Alone.
The next time someone asks, "Let me know how I can help!", you can answer, "Join my ianacare team!". No more confusing spreadsheets, sign up emails, or intrusive group texts full of back and forth logistics to keep up with.
Even the smallest acts of support can make a huge difference!
*Note: If you are a caregiver, check with your employer to unlock additional resources at no cost. Download the app and go through the authentication flow to see if your employer provides this customized benefit.
• Ask for and receive practical help
Share your care requests with the team to get practical support with meals, check-ins, rides, respite care, child care, pet care, and errands. ianacare makes requests super efficient and clear, so supporters can easily say “I got this” without the burden of back-and-forth logistics. Then with one click, all the details get automatically entered on both people’s calendars.
• Easily invite people to the team
Invite friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, community members, professional caretakers, and anyone else who wants to help. You can 1) directly invite them from within the ianacare app or 2) copy and paste the team link to an email or social media post.
• Keep everyone up to date
Posting in your private ianacare feed lets everyone on the team share news, offer support and get updates on the care of your loved one.
• Get help without asking
Supporters on your team can proactively offer day-to-day help tasks and send money, gift cards, or items on your Amazon wishlist without you even asking.
• Stay organized with a team calendar
Every task that is requested shows up on your team calendar so you can stay organized and know exactly when people plan to help and where you need additional support.
• Control notification preferences
Whether you are a caregiver or a supporter on the team, you can control what requests, notifications, and updates you get and how you get them (email, SMS, push notifications.)
• Start or join a team for a caregiver
Not the primary caregiver? You can still start a team and invite the caregiver to join, or join a team you have been invited to.
We are excited to add the ability to add recurring events and requests, along with some improvements to the user interface!
Ratings and Reviews
Ianacare is a huge help!
We wouldn’t know what to do without ianacare anymore. It is true, as a caregiver a lot of people ask: You let me know if there is anything we can do? And in that moment you dont know what to say, cuz you have it under control for the moment. But the answer is - join Valeria‘s (our daughter’s) ianacare team and will let you know, if we need help.
It s a super cool app. You can organize everything. Rides to Dr‘s appointments, PT, even mealdelivery etc. Try it out. It‘s much easier to ask anyone for help with ianacare and you have to sooner or later and people, who join Valerias team are really happy to help and to be a part of the ianacare team plus we use the app to structure our day and responsibilities within the family as well.
User friendly app to keep loved ones in the loop and ask for specific help
The app has really been instrumental in coordinating help and staying in the loop with one who needs care. This is way better than group texts or Facebook to stay up to date on loved ones. The app is really user friendly and easy to use! Highly recommend it!
Freely ask and freely say no
This amazing app showed up when I needed it most. It allowed me to freely ask for help during my mother’s illness and it slowed for our people to step up and support us in so many ways. It is easy, convenient and probably the best thing I utilized as my mother was dying. It is a must have for every single caregiver. ❤️
