Operation Family Caregiver

Quality of Life Foundation recently attended a launch event for an exciting new program – Operation Family Caregiver presented by Blue Star Families!

Blue Star Families is a national, nonprofit network of military families from all ranks and services, including guard and reserve, dedicated to supporting, connecting, and empowering military families. Blue Star Families’ Caregivers program is a multi-faceted approach that reaches military and veteran caregivers through many different channels. BSF knows the day-to-day challenges that caregivers experience, and has created a program with multiple access points, based on caregiver bandwidth. Blue Star Families’ CEC program provides workshops and digital resources for caregivers. Register here for a special BSF workshop for military caregivers on March 10th near Fort Belvoir, VA.

Blue Star Families is proud to present the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving’s signature military program, Operation Family Caregiver. Operation Family Caregiver is the newest of many Blue Star Caregiver programs supporting military families. Operation Family Caregiver is a personalized program to help the families of newly returning service-members and veterans adjust to the “new normal” by coping more effectively with problems they never imagined. It offers specially trained coaches to help military families learn how to manage their challenges. It is a free and confidential program of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving and is administered by Blue Star Families and trained coaches, not the military or VA.  It can be done in person or by phone or Skype. If you or someone you know would like to participate in the program (remote participants welcome), or get more information, please email operationfamilycaregiver@bluestarfam.org.
