VA Caregiver Support Program
New to Caregiving
If you are new to being a Family Caregiver, we know you're going through some significant life changes right now, and we're here to help. Being the Family Caregiver of a Veteran can be difficult, demanding, exhausting, and rewarding. VA realizes new Family Caregivers need information, help and support.
Remember to be patient with yourself – learning to be a Family Caregiver takes time. During this period, know that VA is here for you. The Caregiver Support Line – 1-855-260-3274 – is a great first step to learn more about the support that's available to you, and is staffed by caring professionals who can help.
Your local VA Caregiver Support Coordinator can also be a helpful resource, providing you with valuable information about services and support available to you. You can find your local Caregiver Support Coordinator by visiting our Help Near Home and entering your zip code.
