Caring for your older loved one can be a lonely journey. You don’t have to walk it alone.


Around the country, millions of adult children, spouses, relatives and friends are caring for older adults. Many of these seniors have chronic health conditions — Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, diabetes, lung disease, heart disease, depression and more. Are you one of these caregivers?

We know the daily rigors of managing this care can be challenging. That’s why we created SmallCircles. Our mobile app helps match people caring for older adults with local, small, private groups. The people in these intimate, vibrant communities share resources, experiences, ideas and information with others who truly understand the caregiver journey.


Find Your Circle

It’s Easy and Private

Providing the best care for your loved one takes a toll on you that is no less crushing because you’re the healthy one. Within the app, you can group chat with others in your small circle as well as access a variety of local resources for older adults.

But most important, your experience is incredibly private. We use healthcare-level security, operating on the same privacy standards as HIPAA.

You can download the app for iOS from the iTunes App Store or for Android from Google Play.

Now that savvy, skill, plus years of technology experience planning and executing on big ideas, has been poured into developing SmallCircles into vibrant, concentric circles of support.
