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.

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!


Great improvement with the new version

The new version is pretty solid. It has the features that I need to keep up with my friends’ latest updates. The app has been very stable and I absolutely love it.


New version is a very solid app

This new version is a significant improvement from the older application. It is really easy to use and a great way to keep up on journal updates on my friend’s CaringBridge site
