Classes for Caregivers.

Here is a link to an article providing a link to free webinars and classes for caregivers of veterans! Thanks to the Care Givers blog for putting this information out there. You might want to check out their site while you're there.
A lot of my support group members are or were caregivers for veterans so I know how difficult it can be to navigate the VA systems to get the support and health care your loved one needs. Hopefully, classes like this can help caregivers find the resources they need.

"The Family Caregiver Alliance, a leading advocacy organization for family caregivers, is hosting a webinar Wednesday, June 18, 2014, from 1-2 p.m. PST, which will explain the VA Caregiver Support Program and services offered through the Department of Veterans Affairs. It should help you find more support and understand the benefits available to you as a military caregiver. The webinar costs $15."

 "Enroll in the VA’s Free On-line -Workshop “Building Better Caregivers” Although the title of this free on-line class reminds me of TV shows about cyborgs like The Six Million Dollar Man, the VA workshop “Building Better Caregivers” is an excellent resource for caregivers of veterans. A six-week class that you can take whenever you want, on your own schedule, the workshop will help you learn a variety of skills like time and stress management, healthy eating, exercise and dealing with difficult emotions."
