The VA Caregiver Support Line (CSL) brings more than just a sense of community, but also peace of mind for 250-350 callers daily. Responders are professional social workers. They are trained counselors in mental health therapy and experienced case managers who match caregivers with available resources both inside VA and within the community. In addition to offering those “just-in-time” services, the responders help counter the feelings of isolation many caregivers experience.
The CSL creates a sense of community for caregivers through monthly telephone education groups and referrals to the VA Caregiver Peer Support Mentoring program. They also assist with the Building Better Caregivers online workshop and through individual coaching sessions through VA’s REACH program.
