Homewatch CareGivers ‘We Care for Veterans' Program Provides 20 Hours of Free Care to Veterans and their Families
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO—To honor the service and sacrifice of U.S. military personnel, Homewatch CareGivers (www.HomewatchCareGivers.com), the largest and most experienced international franchise provider of home care, is offering up to 20 hours of free in-home care to disabled or injured U.S. military veterans of any conflict—from World War II and Korea to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq—through its "We Care for Veterans" program.
"We know that thousands of returning veterans depend on family members as caregivers. Often these family members are responsible for childcare and elder care as well" said Leann Reynolds, president, Homewatch CareGivers. "We hope our donation of home care can directly help meet the veteran's care needs and support family caregivers by giving them a respite to recharge and care for themselves or by providing additional support services for their loved one."
Official reports from the U.S. Department of Defense indicate more than 31,000 military personnel have been wounded in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Veteran care and support organizations estimate 20,000 or more injured and disabled veterans depend on others for daily care. Service members or a family member can sign up for the "We Care for Veterans" program by visiting www.homewatchcaregivers.com to access program details or by calling toll free 1-800-777-9770. The program is available to one veteran per location and is issued on a first come, first serve basis. Care can be secured for any purpose that falls within Homewatch CareGivers' existing service offering. Applicants must be signed up for "We Care for Veterans" by November 30, 2009.
