SELECTED AS THE NEW OPERATION FAMILY CAREGIVER PROVIDER
The WAServes team welcomes Easterseals Washington to the WAServes network. Easterseals is a new provider in the WAServes network. Easterseals Washington has been providing crucial services for people with disabilities and their families for nearly 70 years. Now, through 10 program sites across the state, this organization serves people of any age and any disability – helping its clients build skills and access the resources they need to live, learn, work and play.
COACHING FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF NEWLY RETURNING SERVICE MEMBERS AND VETERANS TO MANAGE DIFFICULT TRANSITIONS
Easterseals Washington is proud to have been selected as the new Operation Family Caregiver provider in Washington State. Operation Family Caregiver provides free and confidential support to the families of those who have served our nation. Easterseals Washington helps the families of returning service members and veterans adjust to the “new normal” by coping more effectively with problems they never imagined. Easterseals’ specially trained coaches help military families learn how to overcome the obstacles they face and to manage any challenges that might come along.
HOW IT WORKS
OFC coaches work for local, community-based organizations, not the military, and will visit the caregiver’s home, or meet by phone/Skype, to customize a 16- to 24-week program that is unique to each family. Together, caregivers and their coaches develop strategies that can help them get through the tough times and make plans for how to manage over the long term. See the image below to see how Operation Family Caregiver strengthens military families.
