Community Member Benefits

Create Custom Care Guides based on your caregiving situation. A Custom Care Guide is a collection of information, articles and news tailored just for you—and saved in your profile to view any time.

Access Caregiver Stories. Unexpected moments are common in caregiving. Whether humorous, inspiring or embarrassing, they happen to all caregivers. Share your experiences and read other caregivers' stories.

Send Care Reports. With our quick and easy tool, you can update friends and family about your loved one's well-being.

Meet Other Members. Find other members in a similar caregiving situation. Follow them or visit their public profile to learn more about them. Write them a message and see what's on their mind.

Connect with other Caregivers. Wall posts from other members appear in your News Feed. Post messages to your wall or other members' walls (as well as a caring "hug"). Your wall is public unless you set it to private.

Share your Status. Use our On My Mind... feature to post a quick status message for your followers. Let them know what's on your mind today. Share the good, the bad and the ugly.

Lend Support. Give positive feedback to members with our Like This button. Found on members' comments, you can give positive feedback without having to leave a comment—just by clicking the button!
