The Strength of Friends

At Indiana University Health, we understand that family and friends are a very important part of our patients’ care team, so we have created a specialized tool to help them respond in an organized and helpful way to support their loved one.

The Strength of Friends is a free service that allows friends and family to establish a team website to offer a loved one support during a difficult time or life-changing event.

Friends and family members can use the site to:

  • Coordinate schedules for meals, childcare, or errands
  • Provide information and blog updates
  • Post photos
  • Allow family and friends to post guestbook messages
  • Receive tips and tools for supporting their loved one

How It Works

Step 1

A family member or close friend serves as the team captain and completes a brief registration process.

Step 2

This registration process crates a personalized team website, which can then be shared with family members and friends.
