Seasons Hospice Foundation has partnered with CareFlash, an online social network built specifically to help friends and families who are going through tough life events such as illnesses, recovery, rehabilitation or the months following a loss. CareFlash is a robust site rich with features that not only helps friends and families rally around their loved ones, but gets beyond the sympathy messages to real, meaningful engagement.
Austin, Texas. CareFlash, LLC, announced today its partnership with Seasons Hospice Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit that supports Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care’s patients, families and staff, and funds educational programs to increase awareness about the hospice benefit. CareFlash is a private, online social platform designed to enable family and friends to come together around their loved ones through such life events as illnesses, recovery, rehabilitation, or in the months following a loss.
In educating Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care’s community of families, the Foundation makes it possible for families to develop their own invitation-only CareFlash CareCommunities to support and celebrate patients’ lives. CareCommunities are created on the CareFlash platform by patients’ friends and families to strengthen their loved ones’ outlook, optimism and peace of mind by helping them become and remain naturally and comfortably engaged. Each CareCommunity is built around its own Blog, which provides updates, well wishes and discussions, as well as meaningful, in-depth, sustained dialogues that create healing power. CareCommunities members can naturally and comfortably rally around loved ones without the awkwardness of not knowing how to engage.
“Hospice is tough,” said Greg Grabowski, President & CEO, Seasons Hospice Foundation. “CareFlash helps the emotional needs of patients, as well as family and friends of patients by taking a social networking platform, a technological concept perceived by many to be superficial, to a deeper, more profound level of healing. CareFlash helps friends and family rally around a person who is dying and allows for a true celebration of all the wonderful things the patient has done and accomplished in his or her lifetime. CareFlash delivers something very special for end of life continuum.”
