To all my rockin veteran spouses out there, WHOM I AM DYING TO MEET already, VA offers a caregiver program. Hoping this will offer some long awaited relief myself, the support I miss from being in the active duty community, and help to many families across the country. The caregiver support line is 1-855-260-3274. The website is helpful and informational, Caregiver.gov. Check it:
" VA now provides additional support to eligible post-9/11 Veterans who elect to receive their care in a home setting from a primary Family Caregiver. Eligible primary Family Caregivers can receive a stipend, training, mental health services, and access to health insurance if they are not already under a health care plan.
Assistance with the application process is available. Caregiver Support Coordinators are stationed at every VA Medical Center; or dial toll-free 1-877-222 VETS (8387)."
