November is National Family Caregivers Month


November is National Family Caregivers Month, a chance to honor the 65 million selfless family caregivers who assist and support chronically ill, disabled or aged family members or friends. Among these devoted men and women are those who ensure that Veterans have emotional and physical support, access to health care and the opportunity to remain in their homes when they can no longer completely care for themselves.

The Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act of 2010, signed into law by President Obama on May 5, allows VA to provide unprecedented benefits to family caregivers of Veterans. Throughout November family caregivers and VA employees will participate in events at VA medical centers, including resource fairs, special education and wellness programs. All events are VA’s way to thank and honor those who make life better for Veterans and other Americans. For more information on activities planned at local VA medical centers, contact Social Work Service for the name of the Caregiver Support Point of Contact at your facility.
