Title: My HealtheVet
Url: https://www.myhealth.va.gov/index.html
Publisher: United States. Dept. of Veterans Affairs
Description: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has a section of its website called My HealtheVet that offers a library of online "educational and health promotion materials on healthy living to enable Veterans to take control of their own health resources." Visitors will find ten "Healthy Living Centers", such as "Spinal Cord Injury", "Separation From Active Duty", "Physical Activity", and "Caregiver Assistance". Each "Healthy Living Center" offers great resources for veterans, their families, or caregivers. The "Spinal Cord Injury" living center has links for "Self-Management", "Caregiver Information", and "Support and Encouragement". The latter link provides links to the National Veterans Wheelchair Games and Winter Sports Clinic. The "Caregiver Assistance" living center offers visitors the opportunity to listen to an audio file of a talk about neurologically based impairments with focus on traumatic brain injury. A transcript of the talk is also available. Another very helpful audio file in the "Caregiver Assistance" living center is about a woman who is the caregiver for her retired Army husband who is a poly-trauma patient. She discusses caring for him, and being his advocate.
