The VA Caregiver Support Line (1-855-260-3274) is available to help by connecting caregivers with VA services. They provide assistance with benefits and the option to “just listen.” The VA also provides mentoring and peer support for caregivers of all experience levels.
These mentoring programs can last up to six months. They are available via telephone and email. There is one-time support, rather than a program lasting up to six months, via the VA Compassionate Connections program.
The VA Wants to Help Build Better Caregivers
There is a free VA provided online workshop called Building Better Caregivers. It is designed to “reduce caregiver stress and depression, and increase caregiver overall well-being” according to the VA.
This online program is intended to help those taking care of anyone with a serious injury or illness. Those dealing with loved ones who have memory issues, dementia, PTSD, or serious brain injuries may benefit greatly from this program.
