Find Caregiver Communities

Caregivers need support, too. Find communities to help with care coordination, updates, and connect with others.

Caregiving Coordination and Journal

The American Lung Association is proud to offer a free and simple way for people with lung disease and their families to receive support from a personally created community of their family, friends, neighbors and others who care about them. Through the Lung Association's page on Lotsa Helping Hands, users can create private, secure web pages that offer two primary services.

First, families can post photos and journal entries to keep loved ones updated on medical matters and other aspects of their lives. It's a great way to update everyone at once, and a real time and energy saver for those who are living with lung disease.

Second, the "care coordination calendar" is a wonderful tool where you can post a list of items for which help is needed, such as transportation, meals, household chores and just taking a break. That way family, friends and others who care can sign up to help.

Privacy and security settings allow you to decide who is permitted access to your own community.
