Caregiver Support Program
VA Palo Alto health care offers a number of services to support you and the Veteran you care for.
The Caregiver Support Program offers 2 programs: the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) and the Program of General Caregiver Support Services (PGCSS). Ask a caregiver support coordinator to help you find what you need, whether it's in-home help, someone to listen, or anything in between.
