Community

Let us help you get connected to communities that support caring.

For Caregivers

Join to have access to the resources below

Caring Village App

Store important medications, legal, financial and medical documents all in one place. Create a “village” of family and friends so others can volunteer to help with transportation, meal delivery, errands and companion care. Create a care plan with daily activities for others to follow while you’re away from home. Ensure your loved one is safe by staying engaged and in contact at all times, even when others are caring for them with the wellness journal, secure in-app messaging and notifications. Keep a repository of medications and upload photos of the medications and labels.

CareZone App

This FREE app essentially allows a caregiver to enter and access all of a senior’s medical information in one place. If family members download the app, you can grant them access to the information, too. CareZone also includes the capability to note when appointments are coming up, store insurance information, create to-do lists and document symptoms. This app is available on both Android and iOS devices.

Family Caregiver Alliance

Family Care Navigator: a first-of-its-kind, state-by-state, online guide to help families in all 50 states locate government, nonprofit, and private caregiver support programs. The easy-to-use Navigator lists programs for family caregivers as well as resources for older or disabled adults living at home or in a residential facility. Join to have access to the Family Care Navigator.

Volunteering

Those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life. This is a fact based on decades of research.  One way to a healthier life is through giving your time and effort to help others.

The Corporation for National and Community Service plays a vital role in supporting America’s culture of service. Community solutions and being a volunteer can make a positive impact.
