VA marks first anniversary of national caregiver support hotline

By Jim Vines | jim.helpingveterans@gmail.com

On Feb. 1 the Department of Veterans Affairs marked their one year anniversary of the toll-free National VA Caregiver Support Line, 1-855-260-3274.

The support line’s dedicated staff has helped more than 25,000 veterans, family members and caregivers connect to resources and receive access to services they have earned.

The VA recognizes the importance of caregivers to veterans’ health and well being. They also recognize the sacrifices the daily care of veterans require. It is the care and commitment of caregivers that allows veterans with chronic illnesses or severe injuries to remain in the homes they defended, surrounded by the loved ones they hold dear.
