Rome, NY (WIBX) - Families caring for wounded Veterans can now receive additional support from the Veterans Administration, after the implementation of a new care-giver program. Cheryl Cox, Care Giver Support Coordinator for the Rome Community Based Outpatient Clinic said, “We know that there are care-givers out there taking care of Veterans. Some may be working, some may be retired, many are probably feeling overwhelmed, and don’t know where to turn. So, we’re letting people know that they can turn to the VA if they’re caring for a Veteran.”

She says through the Care Giver Support Program, that got off the ground nationally this spring, the VA is also offering enhanced benefits for veterans who were seriously injured in the line of duty, on or after September 11, 2001. Military care-giver families are encouraged to attend an information session this Wednesday, November 9th, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Rome VA Clinic. Organizers say, some of the services available include Respite and Home Healthcare services, as well as, financial support. Attendees can pick up an application during the event.
