Caregiver Support

VA values the commitment of caregivers as partners in our pledge to care for those who have "borne the battle," and we have several support and service options designed with the caregivers in mind. This new program comes from Public Law 111-163, "Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act of 2010." The programs are available both in and out of your home to help you care for the Veteran you love and for yourself. These services include: in home care, respite care, services to address mobility issues, education and training, information and referral and caregiver support services. Additionally, seriously injured post 9-11 Veterans may be eligible for a VA stipend per Public Law 111-163. VA will accept applications using VA Form 10-10CG from eligible Veterans and their Family Caregivers for the new Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers. For more information regarding this new program or any other services provided through the Caregiver Support Program, please contact the numbers listed below or go to www.caregiver.va.gov.
