As Dependable As Our Veteran Heroes | 11/7/15

Another Veteran’s Day is right upon us. It is never “just another holiday” is it?

We count on our men and women in service to be dedicated to protecting us.

As I do every year at this time, I dedicate my show to honoring our heroes and you, the caregivers of our veterans. It is only fitting to talk about the support the VA has for families who are caring for a veteran.

And every year, I can count on my guest on Saturday to join us and talk about what we can do to take care of our veteran heroes.

For those who are caring for a veteran, you MUST listen to Nicole Johnson, LCSW with the National Caregiver Support Program.

How is caring for a veteran different from caring from someone who isn’t a veteran? What services are available to support those caregivers?

You will be surprised at the answers to these questions.

Nicole will also tell us about two VA programs that can help you as a caregiver.

Building Better Caregivers is an online program that provides information and support, including a six week workshop. The Peer Support Mentoring Program matches New Caregivers to more experienced Caregivers. These are both available to VA Caregivers of ALL eras.
