In recognition of National Family Caregivers Month, the Caregiver Support Line will be hosting “live” brief meditation activities via telephone throughout the month of November. This is a great opportunity to take 10 minutes out of your busy schedules to focus on relaxing your mind and your body. Every Wednesday at 8am, 12pm and 8pm Eastern Time (November 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th), Caregivers are invited to call toll free 1-800-767-1750. When prompted, enter access code 73687 then press the # key. Then sit back, relax, and let a Caregiver Support Line social worker guide you through a brief activity to help restore your balance. Registration is not required! Please join us in these activities as we honor you, the Caregivers of our nation’s Veterans.

Safe Haven: Building on Family Strength

This presentation identifies some of the key tools that resilient families draw from in order to make it through the tough times, adapt to change, and grow as a result of life’s challenges
