The caregiver of the Veteran may also use https://www.va.gov/Geriatrics/docs/Caregiver_Self_Assessment.pdf to help identify their own needs and decide how much support they can offer to the Veteran.  This information along with the guidance of the care team and social worker, will help reach short-term and long-term decisions.
