Veterans Caregiver Training

Easter Seals is working with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to provide a Program of Comprehensive Support to eligible veteran caregivers. Mandates by the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-163), Easter Seals and the VA are providing caregiver training via face to face classes throughout the country, a workbook/DVD approach and on demand web access. Eligible caregivers are certified by their local VA Caregiver Support Coordinators to receive this training. Those certified and completing the training will be eligible for Veteran Caregiver benefits.

Easter Seals is pleased to present this program in conjunction with our partners Atlas Research, a veteran owned small business, three of the country’s leading caregiving organizations The National Alliance on Caregiving, the National Family Caregiver Association and the Family Caregiver Alliance -- and the National Alliance for Hispanic Health who has adapted the curriculum for Spanish speakers and is addressing the specific needs of Hispanic veterans and their caregivers.
