Support TTN

The Caring Collaborative

Welcome to the Caring Collaborative, a program of friendly and neighborly assistance, offered by members, to preserve and promote healthy independence.

The TTN Caring Collaborative was designed, developed and implemented by a volunteer committee of TTN members. It mobilizes the goodwill that exists within TTN’s membership to provide support to members in need. They learn from the healthcare experiences of others – what to expect during breast cancer treatment or how to optimize recovery following knee replacement surgery, etc. The Caring Collaborative provides personal support when the unexpected compromises one’s independence.

The CC program offers support through:
  • Assistance with short-term or occasional needs, including help at home or with doctor visits
  • A medical information exchange (MIX)- a chance to speak directly and confidentially with members who have relevant medical experiences
  • Programs on health topics
  • Links to health & wellness resource directories  
Since the TTN Caring Collaborative officially launched in October of 2008, hundreds of members have enthusiastically joined and have benefited from this program.
