Caregiver Resources

Caregivers, for wounded veterans or family members who are ill or aging, all share things in common.

  • A sense of grief over what was lost.
  • Anticipated grief over what may come or what will come.
  • Fear of losing the one you love.
  • Frustration over getting the help you require for the person you are taking care of.
  • Feeling like you are not heard, understood, or taken seriously.
  • Loss of connection with other people as you try to cope with the changes in your life.
  • Loss of time and energy to take care of yourself.
  • Anger that most of your energy is given to someone else leaving no room for you.
  • Concern on how to balance life (caregiving, work, kids, spouse, parents, friends, self)
  • Living with daily uncertainty or moment by moment changes.
  • Wondering how you will go on when they are gone and handle what is required.
  • Caregiver burnout.
  • PTSD triggers.
  • And a multitude of other emotions.

This section will provide resources to help you, as a caregiver, cope with what is, take care of yourself, and heal your life.
