Show Notes

In an era where we're living longer, families are far away, and we want to stay independent, self-help programs like the Caring Collaborative fill a gaping hole, whether you live in the suburbs or a city.

The Transition Network's Caring Collaborative program channels the goodwill of our community into practical help with health issues. Grocery shopping, sharing medical experiences, an escort to your rehab session, a note-taker during a doctor's visit - they're all on the Caring Collaborative's menu of ways participants can support each other. You'll learn about TTN's program - and how you can bring its benefits into small and large groups in your life.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • About The Transition Network's Caring Collaborative program, which taps into our community to transform goodwill into practical help
  • How to import Caring Collaborative activities into your own large or small groups
  • Success factors in launching a CC program
