During a health journey, everyone wants to know what’s going on, and how they can help. Public social media isn’t always the right place to share medical details, and it’s too hard to keep up with individual emails, texts and calls. CaringBridge offers a safe, secure place for patients and caregivers to provide health updates, and for family and friends to respond with messages of emotional support and prayers.

Changed my world!

I have been using Caring Bridge for almost 18 months. My husband became very ill and for the first 10 days I was going out of my mind with worry for him and trying to keep family and friends updated of his condition. I tried setting up group text and email accounts but I would miss a group or someone with info. Finally someone suggested Caring Bridge and it took a load off my plate. My site has over 250 followers and has had over 8100 visits. I would have never been able to make that many contacts. And it’s easy.

Such a powerful tool to support friends!

Love the app! I was in high school when a peer of mine was in a car crash. It was really easy to share the story with other classmates, gracefully avoiding confusion, rumors, and made it easy to reach out to the family. What an amazing way to stay connected to friends during tough times.

Beautiful Redesign!!!

I’ve been a long time user of CaringBridge but never really liked the old app. I was hesitant to update but... Holy Guacamole!!! The new version is beautiful and I can now keep up with friends and family while on the go. Thanks for listening to everyone’s feedback!
