OPERATION: NEVER FORGET – “ACCESSING VA PROGRAMS”

The Primary Caregiver for a Veteran who has Memory Loss needs help. Today’s show is about the various efforts and unique Geriatric programs available thru the VA healthcare system for veterans over 65 who suffer from chronic illnesses including memory loss. Our guest today is Nina Tumosa, the acting and associate director for education of the GRECC at the VA Health Care System located in St. Louis, Missouri. There are many programs available to senior Veterans with memory loss who qualify. Actively advocating on their behalf is critical to delivering these needed services. Today we will demystify this process.
