The VA healthcare system can be overwhelming. This webinar will examine your role in helping veterans and their loved ones navigate the system in a simple way. You’ll learn about the resources available for support services staff, how to access them, and how to move the veteran and family toward a positive end-result.
The presentation will review key areas, including tools for shared decision-making: worksheets for veterans and caregivers; locating services and resources that provide care; Family Caregiver Navigator; eldercare services; caregiver wellness and support; and an advance care planning process. Your support can make a difference to veterans and families during the difficult end-of-life journey.
