Connected Patient Communities

When you are hospitalized, you or your family may want to keep others informed about your condition. CaringBridge is a free web service that helps patients, families, and friends stay connected to one another. With CaringBridge, anyone can set up a Web site and share updates, photos, stories, and more. Visitors to the site can read about the patient’s condition and send notes of encouragement and support.

Each CaringBridge site is private and can only be viewed by those who know the exact name of the site they are trying to reach. Password protection is also an option. The author of the site has control over the privacy settings. Please visit for more information.
