The Strength of Friends
When a life-changing event occurs, it is only natural for friends and family to want to be there for support. At Indiana University Health, our healthcare team understands that family and friends are a very important part of our patients’ care team, so we have created a specialized tool to help you respond in an organized and helpful way to support your loved one.
The Strength of Friends is a FREE service that allows friends and families to establish a private team website to offer a loved one support during a difficult time. The Strength of Friends Web tool can be used to coordinate schedules, create a guestbook, provide updates and much more.
How it Works
Creating a team website is quick and easy. Here’s how it works:
- A family member or close friend serves as the “team captain” and completes a brief registration process at thestrengthoffriends.org.
- After the registration process, a personalized team website is created and shared with family members and friends.
- Friends and family members can use the site to: Coordinate schedules for meals, childcare or errands, provide information and blog updates, allow family and friends to post guestbook messages, post photos and much more!
- The importance of teamwork cannot be emphasized enough when a friend or family member is going through a life-changing event. If you or someone you know has a loved one in crisis or need, help show them your love and support by creating or joining a Strength of Friends team today.
