About The Whole Care Network

The Whole Care Network is a robust network of individuals, teams, and organizations within the care economy. We bring personal care stories and reliable resources for those living in a care role.

 

Our Mission is Two Fold

  • To improve care everywhere, we create media (podcasts, books, videos, courses, newsletters, blogs, etc.) that share authentic care stories and trusted information for families facing touch care challenges.
  • To solve tough care challenges through true collaboration among care leaders by maximizing the diversity in our perspectives, expertise, and talents

Christopher MacLellan, M.A. Founder and CEO

Christopher MacLellan started The Whole Care Network after his experience as family caregiver balancing care and career. With 10 years of experience as the director of an information and referral service hotline, he grew a passion for advocacy in caregiving. He saw firsthand the difficulty in finding trusted information and resources to sustain a healthy and productive lifestyle at home and work. For Chris, the focus of The Whole Care Network is bringing information to family caregivers through shared stories and easy-to-consume media organized within 4 Pillars of Care.

Kimberly Whiter, Ed.D., Co-founder

Kimberly Whiter is the Owner and CEO of Elder Care Solutions and the creator of The Care Colloquium, the first-of-its-kind national thought leadership conference for leaders in the care economy. She created The Care Colloquium to bring together leaders like herself, trying to make care better for families. Her vision was a space where leaders would build a true ecosystem around care and, in doing so, build collaborations and provide thought leadership on solutions to tough care challenges.

With The Whole Care Network, she is carrying forward her promise to create a space for a care ecosystem of care economy leaders working together, not just at an annual event but all year round. The Whole Care Network allows care leaders to disseminate their care stories, share their expertise, and utilize their talents to make care better everywhere.
