Telephone Support Group for Caregivers of Veterans with Dementia (2016 A,P)
The VA Illiana Health Care System provides a telephone support group free of charge to anyone who provides care in the home to a Veteran with dementia, or a Veteran who provides care in the home for a family member with dementia. The Veteran must be enrolled in VA, must have a VA primary care physician and a diagnosis of dementia (any type), made by a VA provider. To participate, you must be the person who provides hands-on care to the Veteran. Caregivers will participate in a one hour, once-a-week group telephone call, for six consecutive weeks. The call is toll-free. The group will focus on skill-building in the areas of problem solving and mood management and will provide an opportunity to share with and learn from other group members.
