    As a caregiver of a 4-time combat Veteran, this hit the nail DIRECTLY on the head. There are simply no words to express how appreciative I am for this.

    I’m the parent caregiver of a 100% disabled Veteran of the Iraq war – his disabilities stem from invisible injuries. It’s tough to make tears come to my eyes – I’ve been doing this for 13 years and am a Veteran myself. In fact, I just quit employment I loved after trying to return to work. A work schedule, caregiving requirements, and the strain that being a caregiver can put on a marriage, could not be resolved.

    The points made in this course are all valid and important. But I think the aging parent caregiver often gets overlooked or glossed over in these discussions.

    That isn’t a criticism of this course. I think it’s excellent and would recommend it to anyone to further their understanding. I just want to say this because, too often, I think parents as caregivers don’t get the opportunity to add their voices and experiences to the dialogue. And it often seems as though caregiver support programs and services are targeted toward spouses of disabled Veterans.

    Thank you, PsychArmor, for being here.

    It is amazing how the average person does not see the hidden “love” of caring for a veteran. I am a veteran, caring for my wife, also a veteran. A 24/7 care, which I accept unconditionally. And yes, I am still able to hold down a job during the day. Talking veteran to veteran even listening to a veteran, has a strong and permanent affect towards accepting challenges endured due to service to our country. Yes, we started as care givers, before being labeled a care giver. I call it unconditional love.
