Offered through Military Caregiving Military Families Learning Network

Like many things in life, caregiving is a journey, not a destination. Even the best laid plans – or map, if you will – have unintended obstacles and barriers resulting in a change of direction. While the caregiver cannot anticipate every scenario, there are some common issues that caregivers may be able to anticipate. Too, knowing there may be detours ahead may be able to help the caregiver better cope when problems arise. This session will explore some common issues in caregiving and provide some tips for when these detours occur. We will also discuss some critical thinking/decision-making skills that can help caregivers take apart and analyze unanticipated detours.

Better Understanding Military Caregiver Needs – Military Caregiver Survey

Army Public Health Center (APHC) is conducting a Military Caregiver Survey at Ft. Bragg, NC, Ft. Sill, OK, Joint Base Lewis McChord, and Joint Base San Antonio in the spring of 2018. If you are a Family member, friend or acquaintance caring for a wounded, ill or injured active duty Service member, please take the time to complete this survey. Your participation is vital since the results of our survey will determine the way ahead to best meet your needs and that of your Service member.
