Taking Care of Veterans’ Caregivers
News from the VA on taking care of our veterans’ caregivers.
- It’s important for family Caregivers of Veterans to take care of their own health while taking care of the Veteran they love!
- VA offers a comprehensive health care program called the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA) for family members of seriously ill or injured Veterans who meet specific criteria including Veterans who are rated permanently and totally disabled for a service-connected disability by VA.
- Eligible Family Caregivers of eligible post-9/11 Veterans participating in VA’s Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers may also be eligible for CHAMPVA. For more information about CHAMPVA, please visit http://www.va.gov/hac/forbeneficiaries/champva/champva.asp.
