Caregiver Support Program Cookbook

In celebration of Caregiver Support Month in November and the December holidays, the Caregiver Support Program distributed a cookbook they collectively created.   Summer intern, Holly Diercks, worked with caregivers, Veterans, VA employees and volunteers to collect recipes that she assembled into a cookbook.  With support from community donors, the book was printed and bound, then distributed with educational materials, support resources and program information to all Caregiver Support program participants.  Veterans and their caregivers have enjoyed trying some of the shared recipes and are grateful for the additional support and outreach.
