VisitingOurs.com as a single point of contact in a crisis, and relieve
your mind. The site is the result of a psychologist's dream and is a
place you can turn to with confidence. VisitingOurs.com enables anyone
with a sick or hospitalized family member to keep their family and
friends updated about the patient's condition and progress without
making multiple phone calls. In this way, VisitingOurs reduces the
burden placed on family caregivers during a medical episode. After
simple, free and secure set up, a patient page can be 'visited' by
select people from anywhere around the world. Your information is
private and can only be viewed by people you select and supply with
your PIN number. You can enter e-mail addresses, and those addresses
will be automatically alerted when your page is updated. The site
helps provide support for the patient or caretaker by allowing
visitors to leave messages. VisitingOurs.com has already enabled
nearly 40,000 people around the world to feel connected and remain
informed at anytime, from anywhere.
