Botsford Program Helps Patients and Families Communicate

Farmington Hills, Mich. (May 28, 2010)---A partnership between Botsford Hospital and CaringBridge, a non-profit service, now provides free websites to patients and families when someone is facing a serious medical condition or a prolonged treatment and recovery period.  
The CaringBridge service enhances Botsford’s patient and family support system by simplifying communication and reducing stress for patients and caregivers by providing a centralized location for posting updates, as well as a place for friends and family to send messages of love and support.  
A CaringBridge website can be created by visiting and clicking on the CaringBridge logo. By following a few simple steps, a personalized website complete with privacy options can be started in just minutes. Friends and family members can receive automatic updates when journal entries have been made, and can leave messages of love, support and encouragement in the “Guestbook.” 

Beaumont Health is Michigan's largest health care system, based on inpatient admissions and net patient revenue.
