(Victor Valley)– The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has teamed up with the Elizabeth Dole Foundation to launch Respite Relief for Military and Veteran Caregivers, a new program that will offer caregivers in select regions of California, Texas, and Florida with access to no-cost, short-term relief during the COVID-19 crisis. CareLinx is powering the emergency fund with a generous contribution of $1 million in professional in-home care services.
This program was launched as a direct response to the rapidly rising concerns of military and Veteran caregivers struggling under the pandemic. The CareLinx donation will provide 40,000+ hours of non-medical home care for 1,600+ caregivers and the wounded, ill, or injured warriors for whom they provide care.
Selected caregivers are eligible to receive 24 hours of no-cost short-term relief to be used until December 31, 2020. Please visit hiddenheroes.org/respite for additional information and to apply today!
