WHY YOUR DONATION WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Learning how to shift in this ever changing climate is paramount to continuing to serve our caregivers. In the picture above, thirty caregivers from all of the United States participated in a virtual paint night! We sent each one of them a paint kit with the materials needed for the night. We will continue to do events like these until we can meet again in person! Help us help our veteran families stay connected by donating today!
Counseling on the Homefront
A new program to benefit family caregivers, their children, and veteran couples!
According to the Rand study, "Military caregivers consistently experience worse health outcomes, greater strains in family relationships, and more workplace problems than non-caregivers, and post 9/11 military caregivers fare worst in these areas." The study goes on to say "We found that key aspects of caregiving contribute to depression, including time spent giving care and helping the care recipient cope with behavioral problems. Perhaps even greater concern, between 12% (of pre-9/11 military caregivers) and 33% (of post-9/11 military caregivers) lack health care coverage, suggesting that they face added barriers to getting help in mitigating the potentially negative effects of caregiving."
