The Caring Collaborative, a benefit of membership in The Transition Network, fosters opportunities for members (women 50 and over) to remain healthy and energetic, and to support one another through short-term health situations. The Caring Collaborative is offered in four of TTN’s chapters – New York City, Long Island, San Francisco Bay Area and Philadelphia.
The Conversation Project “encourages you to make your end-of-life wishes known. As they say…start with “what matters to you, not what’s the matter with you.” Whether the conversation you want to have is about you or about a family member, there is a starter kit and videos to help you get it done.”
