Nursing Care for Disabled Veterans
Our United States Military Veterans have sacrificed for the benefit of our country. They have protected our safety and security and fought for peace. While we want all of our soldiers to come home safe and sound after protecting our country, not all do.
We mourn the casualties. We help the wounded. We cherish the homecoming of our loved ones.
When wounded soldiers return home, they often need medical treatment and time to heal. Sometimes, they heal exceptionally well and can live bold, independent lives. Other soldiers require more support and care for a few weeks, months, or even years.
If a veteran is unable to work due to a service-connected disability, the veteran may be entitled to specialized services through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The specialized service may provide an Independent Living Plan as well as counseling, specialized medical treatment, individual technology assistance, and other support to help the individual return to independence. Typically, these services can continue as long as 24 months.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and several non-governmental organizations provide support to our veterans. To begin finding more information, click here to learn more about general benefits for veterans. Click here to learn more about disabled veteran benefits.
Disabled veterans may also apply for help with adaptive equipment and assistive technology that may help them to communicate, live more independently within a wheelchair-accessible home, make home structural alterations to accommodate specific needs, care for themselves, accommodate their needs for driving, or help them to do their job.
Professional caregivers can also play a critical role in the lives of disabled veterans by providing help with mobility, companionship, and assisting with personal care as needed. Caregivers can also complete basic housekeeping tasks including preparing meals and washing laundry. Finally, caregivers can be instrumental in checking vitals, dispensing medicine, and helping with artificial limbs or walking aids.
