In 2008 the foundation added a program called Care for Our Wounded Soldiers to support families caring for returning wounded soldiers who face unique caregiving situations.

This Caregiver’s Support Kit® is dedicated to all the American military men and women who have served our country during armed conflicts. The National Caregiving Foundation extends to them our deepest thanks and respect for the sacrifice that they have made to defend our freedom and to keep us safe.

It is our most fervent wish that this Caregiver’s Support Kit® will help families resume loving, caring relationships, managing their injuries and stresses while adjusting to life after their service. The kit includes the following chapters:
