History of CaringInfo

CaringInfo (formerly known as Caring Connections) began in 2004 with generous funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Since its inception, the program has provided the general public a toll-free HelpLine, a multilingual HelpLine, and free educational materials, including advance directives, to better understand all aspects of end-of-life care – advance care planning, caregiving, grief, hospice, pain and palliative care.

CaringInfo currently relies on philanthropic support to fund the free services and resources provided to the general public. Your tax deductible gift can make a difference to help others across the country be better informed about end-of-life care. Please donate now
