Last week I had the amazing pleasure of hanging out with some great ladies at the Care Giver's Resource Fair at Walter Reed. I had never heard of Veteran Caregiver, so I knew I had to add their group to my list of resources to share with my amazing readers. So lets hear a little bit more about this amazing group.
The basics of it is this....what happens "AFTER"? That seems to be a simple question, but in reality, for many veterans and Caregivers its the complete opposite of simple. What do I/We do now? That's where Veteran Caregiver comes into play.
This site is a bridge for caregivers and veterans alike. It is a safe place to air questions and frustrations on and offline, but we also provide individualized assistance when you've hit the wall. As a veteran or a caregiver of a veteran, your life may be significantly altered by injury, illness, or aging. If you're feeling isolated or alone, want/need people around you who "get it", and you'd benefit from networking with peers and professionals, community health and recovery resources, you've come to the only site of its kind. VeteranCaregiver is here to fill the need for acknowledgement, mentoring as only peers can do, and to provide accessible support from others who share or can address your challenges.- Linda Kreter -Founder & CEO
It is a virtual community that provides a connection. With so much of this world "virual", with social media being the way to go, I think this is a stupendous idea. So many of my friends have been found and developed through social media. Its like the key to the city for Military Spouses, especially those of us who have been situated in isolated areas as I was for so many years.
