We are hosting the Veterans Caregiving Conference and reaching out to caregivers across all branches of service, who need your support to identify applicable training and resources, create a social network that fulfills their unique needs, and help navigating the VA processes for their veteran loved one(s), especially now as we approach the holiday season. The veteran’s caregivers conference team will bring together these entities in a central location to DC, MD, and VA veteran caregivers.
Senator Elizabeth Dole ‘describes the incredibly awesome challenge caregivers face in, Commentary on Caregiver Suicide, she makes astounding statements, such as “Suicide among caregivers is an uncomfortable subject when veteran suicide is rising. Caregivers are our first line of defense in protecting veterans from taking their own lives. Our caregivers must stay one step ahead of their care recipients’ suicidal thoughts. In time, our veterans’ sense of hopelessness transfers to their caregivers. Compounding these difficulties is the dilemma that too many caregivers carry out their role in isolation. Caregivers are doing the difficult work of caregiving without any of the support.”
