CaringBridge is for Everyone
CaringBridge is a safe, private, and ad-free space for family caregivers to share their loved one’s health journey or their own journey. It’s a trusted place for social, emotional, and functional support, from communicating updates, coordinating help, and receiving love, hope, support, and strength from friends and family. CaringBridge user Huzefa, who cared for his wife Sabeeha through her cancer journey, echoes this, “The caregiver’s journey is an endless journey. I would not have been able to remain as positive if it was not for CaringBridge to offload that part of it. It gave me the forum to be positive, to be open, to be vulnerable.” Read more about Huzefa and Sabeeha’s journey here.

Tia Newcomer, CaringBridge CEO, emphasizes the importance of support and community during a health journey, stating, “Caring for a loved one during a health challenge is overwhelming and stressful, in fact 40% of unpaid family caregivers report feeling isolated and unsupported. World Caring Day acknowledges the profound positive impact of connection and support in our lives. This insight is woven into the very fabric of our vision – A world where no one goes through a health journey alone. In 2023, 5.5 million messages of support were posted on CaringBridge pages, and 144 million total visits were made to CaringBridge to offer or receive support and encouragement.”
