In 2013, Aisha Adkins’ life completely changed when her mother was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Dementia. That February, Aisha left her full-time job in healthcare to stay at home with her mom. She had no idea what that would entail.

Aisha quickly realized that being a caregiver was more than just “watching” her mom. But when she sought out resources and support, she failed to find the age appropriate, culturally relevant information she needed.
 
After some research (and lots of trial and error), Aisha knew something had to change and set out to disrupt the caregiving industry. Our Turn 2 Care Logo Inspired by her own caregiving journey, Aisha decided to create a platform for other Millennial caregivers, particularly those who exist in the margins of society.
 
In 2017, she launched Our Turn 2 Care to connect marginalized millennial caregivers to information, resources and each other.
