No caregiver handles this challenging job the same and no two service members or Veterans have the identical set of health challenges. How you care for your loved one will depend on a variety of factors and having a good road map can make the process easier. It’s important to also remember that government and nonprofit support services are available. AARP, Elizabeth Dole Foundation, Hiring our Heroes, VA and others teamed up to produce two guides for Military and Veteran caregivers.
The Military Caregiving Guide gives tips and details to help with the tolls and resources needed to make this labor of love a little less burdensome.
Supporting Military and Veteran Caregivers in the Workplace Guide is a practical guide for employers to better support their caregiver team members.
