Taking on more responsibility for
an older family member or friend?


Connect with other caregivers on the SmallCircles app.

Across 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?

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. Through these connected communities, you can share experiences, ideas and support with others who truly understand your caregiver journey.



It’s Easy and Private

In the SmallCircles app, you can chat with others in your circle – 24/7. You’ll find links to relevant content. And in our resources section, you’ll learn about the best tools and services for navigating your loved one’s care – senior organizations, transportation, equipment, healthcare management and more.

SmallCircles helps you find other caregivers who live close to you or have similar interests. You’ll have access to them anytime, anywhere. And your experience is more personal and private than online forums or Facebook groups. We use healthcare-level security, operating on HIPAA privacy standards.

You’re not alone. Find your small circle. It’s all about connection.

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

Arati’s first-hand experience with the chronic condition of a loved one inspired SmallCircles. In searching for resources for her father with Parkinson’s Disease, all her web savvy research skill and A-type personality drive paled in comparison to the result of one person cutting through the noise and saying, “oh I’ve been through that, try this!”

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.
