About IHCA

Originally founded in 2019 by Kunu Kaushal, the Independent Home Care Alliance (IHCA) was created to meet the growing needs and pain points of independent home care agency owners across the nation. No one has truly revolved the pains of operating an agency, and especially over the last several years, we’ve seen caregiver turnover rates and the demand for care increase significantly, with little to no growth in support and resources for independents in the space. IHCA became a more robust organization in 2021 when it added a Business Process Outsourcing membership level (Powered Partners). This level is for independent home care owners and operators who wish to bolster their organizations through shared backend support. IHCA also provides an onsite Home Care Institute of Learning and a private forum for owners to discuss operational pains, group purchasing opportunities, and administrative and leadership training for independent leaders.
