Ro & Steve was born out of our family’s experience caring for our aging parents. Throughout the journey, we were connected offline to amazing non-profits whose mission is to help people facing the types of challenges we had in front of us.
For us, the impact of these connections was immeasurable. These organizations made a murky world more transparent and helped us see that we weren’t alone. So we’re determined to pay that forward.
Our service is, and will always be, free for users. Senior living communities and home care agencies subscribe to brand their Ro & Steve community pages. As a result, we generate revenue.
We’ve chosen to incorporate giving into our business model from the start. Our promise is to give back five percent (5%) of monthly subscription revenue to approved non-profit partners, who are committed to supporting the aging population (and their families).

Created by caregivers, the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod provides free personalized services to the 10,000 families, individuals, and caregivers on Cape Cod currently living with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases. Our goal is to help families navigate the complexities and challenges they face across the span of these diseases, within a research-based, service driven social model.
The Bob and Diane Fund is a grant for visual storytelling about Alzheimer’s and dementia. Their goal is to bring visual understanding and dialogue to a disease that has been in the shadows for far too long. As a daughter of Alzheimer’s, Gina Martin believes that visual storytelling can be a powerful way to advocate for the increased public and private research and spending needed to find a cure.
