Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center
Our Caregiver Support Center provides a place to relax, have a complimentary snack and drink, or communicate with family and friends via the Caregiver Center laptop or phone. There also is a helpful and caring volunteer present, and a resource wall which connects caregivers to support groups and services. Our focus is reaching out to and supporting family caregivers. There are also enhanced benefits for eligible Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom caregivers of eligible Veterans. The sole purpose of our program is to meet physical and emotional needs of the family members of our patients.
