What if I cannot do all the caregiving the veteran requires?

The VA is authorized to provide other approved family caregivers with training and education, technical support, counseling and lodging and subsistence. In addition, the Department of Veterans Affairs Voluntary Service (VAVS) and the Office of Care Coordination (OCC) have joined together to form the Caregiver Support Network to prepare volunteers to assist primary caregivers of veterans. Your VA Case Management Team is trained to assess veterans and caregiver needs then locate resources to meet those needs.
