Caring Bridges

lady computer




CaringBridge helps any family going through a health event - not only by letting everyone know what is happening but also by bringing that loving, supportive community together. There is a guest book feature for people to leave notes. 

Volunteers and paid staff sometimes face health challenges.  There are always inquiries about the person or the family member who is ill.  CaringBridge could be used by a manager of volunteers to keep people posted and to have others send encouraging messages.

Encourage the family to log onto this site and have someone keep it up to date.  (Great tasks for younger family members who can often be left out of discussions.) If the family needs help doing this, find a volunteer who would be willing to monitor the site.  Sending along encouraging notices to the family.  A personal way to connect the volunteer “family.”
