CaringBridge: Charitable Technology

A critical illness of a friend or loved one is difficult. I experienced my parents journey through their health crisis many years ago.

Keeping family and friends connected is an important healing component. As a caregiver for my parents, I knew how difficult it was  to keep everyone updated. I also knew how important it was for my parents to know that people were thinking of them through a difficult time.

CaringBridge.org is a charitable nonprofit organization which provides free and user-friendly websites to persons challenged with a critical illness, treatment or recovery. The author creates a website which includes a Patient Care Journal to write entries to update family and friends, a guestbook for visitors to post words of support and a photo gallery to upload pictures.

You can also print a copy of an entry or the entire journal.

CaringBridge.org provides a technological tool for the ill, family and friends to share the experience with simplicity and accessibility.

Check it out. You can see works it works here.
