A caregiver is someone — often a family member or friend — who provides a broad range of care and assistance for, or manages the care of, a current or former military service member with a disabling physical or mental injury or illness.

More than a million Americans are providing care to disabled veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. About 40 percent of these caregivers are young spouses, while 25 percent are aging parents.

As caregivers, you are vital partners in our mission to care for all veterans — whatever their needs may be — and we value your work and commitment to the veterans you love. You are not alone.

Explore below for more information about the programs and resources available to help and support both you and the veterans you care for.
