Correlation Between Social Connection And Health Recovery

Information is helpful when facing a health challenge, however, according to research and medical authorities, the most significant impact comes from personally connecting with others.

In a recent survey of more than 4,000 users, patients perceived health benefits and better care when using CaringBridge, which provides free websites that connect people experiencing a significant health challenge to family and friends. Ninety-one percent of CaringBridge users who faced or are facing a health challenge said staying connected helped make their health journey easier.

CaringBridge recently published a white paper titled “Making a Real Impact: The CaringBridge Phenomenon” describing the results of this research and the impact of staying connected during a health crisis. To download or read the white paper, click here.
