A Network on the Web for MN Caregivers

Without support, managing the daily care of a loved one experiencing a health crisis is exhausting, emotionally draining and time consuming. For caregivers, who are often isolated with nowhere to turn, it can feel like the world will come crashing down at any moment. But more and more, caregivers are turning to technology and finding just the support they need while sharing their own knowledge with other caregivers.

Greater Twin Cities United Way, together with the Wilder Foundation and the Metropolitan Caregiver Service Collaborative, have joined together to launch a new online community here on United Front called CaregivingNOW, A Network on the Web for Minnesota Caregivers.
