The Caregiver Support Line has been providing support to Caregivers for five years!
Over 220,000 callers have reached out to the CSL since it’s opening in February 2011.
Staffed by licensed social workers, the Support Line is available to provide supportive counseling, education on topics related to caregiving, and help to connect Caregivers to local supports and services to assist them in their caregiving role, including a referral to a local Caregiver Support Coordinator located at every VA medical center nationwide.
To further support Caregivers, the Caregiver Support Line also facilitates telephone education presentations several times each month for Caregivers, with a focus on self-care.
With VA’s Caregiver Support Line assistance is just a quick phone call away.
