Operation Family Caregiver (OFC) coaches the families of returning service members and veterans to manage the difficulties that come with coming home. OFC is a personalized program, tailored specifically to the struggles of each family. Through proven methods, the program teaches military families the skills needed to best navigate their challenges, resulting in stronger and healthier families.
Coming home can be hard, for both service members and their families. Learning to live with post-traumatic stress, a TBI, or a physical disability takes work - by both those who have been injured and the loved ones who take care of them. Operation Family Caregiver helps the families of returning service members and veterans adjust to the "new normal" by coping more effectively with problems they never imagined.
We provide free and confidential support to the families of those who have served since 9/11. Our specially trained coaches help military families learn how to overcome the obstacles they face and to manage any challenges that might come along. They work for Conemaugh Health System, not the military, and will come to your home, or meet by phone/Skype, to customize a 16-24 week program that is unique to your family.
Together, you will come up with strategies that can help get you through the tough times and make plans for how to manage over the long term. And over time, you will grow stronger, as you learn to cope with problems you never imagined you might confront.
