The Blinded American Veterans Foundation has created a discussion board for all Caregivers of Blind or Visually Impaired veterans to come and create an open dialogue with each other. On this discussion board a caregiver can post questions, advice, seek assistance and build a support network with other caregivers. The great benefit is that the people posting to this discussion board have a firsthand understanding of what Life as a Veteran caregiver is like. We at the Blinded American Veterans Foundation thank you and appreciate all you do for your Veteran. We are in this together and are here for you.
At the Blinded American Veterans Foundation, we fully acknowledge and understand the impact our caregivers have on their Veterans lives. Therefore, we have compiled a list of various resources targeted specifically to Military Veteran Caregivers.
