VA Caregiver Support: Building Better Caregivers
In honor and support of caregivers and their loved ones, VA offers supports to caregivers from the comfort of their home through Building Better Caregivers.
Building Better Caregivers (BBC) is a free 6-week online workshop developed by Stanford University to support caregivers of Veterans of all eras. Caregivers can join a community of caregivers who share similar challenges, such as dealing with stress and finding time for themselves.
Trained facilitators guide caregivers in learning new ways to manage stress and improve communication skills with their Care Partner. Caregivers get access to:
· 24/7 access to self-guided lessons and resources
· Safe, secure & anonymous environment
· Ongoing support from other caregivers during and after the program
