Georgia Southwestern Foundation/Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving
Operation Family Caregiver
Operation Family Caregiver, a skill-building support program, helps caregivers manage the challenges inherent in their role. Caregiver coaches provide in-home, online and telephone consults tailored to the specific circumstances of an individual family, and work with caregivers to develop detailed notebooks with essential information that will be used long after the initial training sessions have ended. Already serving caregivers from 12 locations in 10 other key military states, the Rosalynn Carter Institute will use the Bob Woodruff Foundation investment to expand the implementation of Operation Family Caregiver to the state of Washington, which has a significant population of wounded, ill, and injured veterans.
