The Minnesota Veterans Homes are honored to care for our Residents and look forward to caring for those waiting for future care. We recognize the importance of supporting Veterans’ family members and caregivers and want to ensure they have access to programs and reliable information. The Minnesota Veterans Homes developed and compiled the following resources to support caregivers.
- DailyCaring offers practical caregiver tips for everyday life, personal stories, and resources specifically related to caring for older adults.
- Carebirdsapp offers family caregivers to organize care for their loved ones, easily share the load, keep track of care tasks and better communicate with the care network.
The safety and health of Minnesota Veterans Homes Residents and staff has guided our response to COVID-19 throughout the pandemic. Click here more information on our visitor policy.
