Respite Care Program for the Caregiver and Veteran
Wounded Warriors Family Support’s (WWFS) Caregiver Respite Program provides respite and supplemental services nationwide to the caregivers and families of wounded war veterans. WWFS assists with meals, housekeeping, medical travel grants, and In-Home Care services. Our program aims to ensure that family members who were thrust into the role of caregivers are provided with the support they need to keep their families intact while keeping themselves healthy.
Caring for a wounded veteran can be demanding physically and psychologically. Oftentimes caregivers are spouses or family members who have many other responsibilities, such as work. Caregivers of veterans often spend long hours caring for their loved one, feel high levels of stress and neglect their own personal health.
