Support for Caregivers of Veterans

Transporting aloved one is often one of the biggest issues for caregivers. Whether it is time lost from work, getting informaiton about how to safely and accessibly use theri own vehicle or finding community resources with people they trust to provide transportation, there is a great need for more information targeted at caregivers.

    Agree. And I have spoken to family members that are at risk to losing their jobs and income because of days off from work when caring and transporting a veteran with disabilities to medical appointments. With long drive times, a brief appointment becomes an all day event. If alternative and accessible transportation was available, the family members would miss less time from work.
