I have found another great site for parents similar to The Care Pages I have written about before. This site is CaringBridge.com. It is also a free site for parents to build a web page for their child who is going through a health crisis. This site can be used by adults who are suffering a health crisis as well. The site has educational resources for parents to tap into. There is a newsroom area where the reader can find what is new in the medical field and there is a page for personal stories of healing and success.
This kind of free service is so valuable to parents of children that have frequent medical admissions. The web site is a great place for parents to keep loved ones informed and to stay connected to the outside world. It offers family and friends a way to contact and give support to the parents and child without the burden of phones interrupting at a bad time.
If you have a moment, go to CaringBridge.com and explore the site. There you will find a brief video tour of what Caring Bridge offers. You will see for yourself how much difference a site like this for parents and children can make in the healing process.
