Caregivers play a very important role in the health and healing of our Veteran patients.

Monday, November 1, 2010

Bay Pines VA Healthcare System is committed to "Caring for Those Who Care."  As National Family Caregiver month is celebrated across the nation in November, we will also raise awareness, acknowledge, and support the care that is provided to our Veteran patients by their loyal caregivers.  Our Caregiver Support Team will be reaching out to over 1,500 caregivers this month providing resources and education that may assist them in caring for their loved ones.

Materials that our team will be providing include:

  • Folders & notepads that are handy for organizing medical information
  • A four page community resource guide for the state of Florida
  • Hospice "Caregiver Journals"
  • A caregiver Pocket Guide
  • Invitations to Caregiver Support Groups held at Bay Pines
  • Pinellas County Caregiver Resource Guide
  • Miniature pill boxes for caregiver to quickly fill and tote when out of the home
  • My HealtheVet information
  • Stress balls to help alleviate tension when dealing with stressors

If you are caregiver for one of our Veteran patients and would like to receive more information, please contact Nicole Johnson at 727-398-6661 or 1-888-820-0230 extension 2644.
