Grantmakers Veterans FINAL.wmv
There are 5.5 million caregivers supporting our nation’s wounded warriors. With the rapidly growing population of Vietnam Era veterans ages 65 years and older, as well as parents and grandparents now supporting those injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, this is increasingly a concern for the broader aging network. In this web seminar, Jed Johnson, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at Easter Seals, and Steve Schwab, Executive Director of the Elizabeth Dole Foundation, will discuss the challenges in the lives of these “Hidden Heroes,” emerging programs and services, and the role that foundations can play in helping to end their isolation and desperation. John Feather, CEO of Grantmakers in Aging, moderates the session. Slides are available here:  http://tinyurl.com/o4kmqty
