Taking Care Of Our Veterans’ Caregivers

This article from the Huffington Post considers how we can better serve our Veterans through supporting their caregivers. 

"The nation will say “thank you for your service” to its military veterans this week...Many rely on family members or friends as informal caregivers. These caregivers make it possible for wounded veterans to remain at home rather than in-care facilities, helping with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, physical therapy, meal preparation and medication."
