Operation Family Caregiver
Now serving families in Georgia and throughout the United States
Designed to help families of returning OEF/OND/OIF service members suffering with health issues such as traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress, and physical disability, Operation Family Caregiver is a personalized 4-6 month program offered either in-home, by telephone, or via Skype (depending upon location). Operation Family Caregiver teaches problem-solving skills that help empower family caregivers to deal more effectively with issues related to caregiving. Operation Family Caregiver has been proven to lower depression, decrease health complaints, and reduce burden and anxiety in family caregivers. Participation in the program is free
and completely confidential
. No personal or medical information is accessed or shared with others.
Operation Family Caregiver is a translation of an evidence-based intervention (Problem-Solving Training for Family Caregivers) that has been tested for caregivers of individuals with a range of mental health conditions associated with traumatic brain injury and stroke, as well as caregivers of individuals with disabilities.
