Family and Child Care

Family Caregiving March 13, 2012 Print Friendly and PDF

Military caregiving involves new roles and challenges in your life that can affect your relationships with your wounded warrior and children. A service member’s injury affects not only the wounded warrior but also those struggling to care for him or her. The relationships that you, your children, and your loved one once shared may change, depending of the specific combat injury.

It's important that you as the caregiver learn about your wounded warrior’s condition and how it may affect your life and the lives of your children. The following articles provide information related to family and child care issues. Remember, the more you know, the better you are able to care.
