Some Service Members and Veterans are unable to care for themselves and need support from caregivers while other physical needs may be less substantial.  There are benefits available to Service Members and Veterans who require emotional and physical support, or assistance with adjusting to life after recovering from a wound, illness or injury.
The benefits listed are not all inclusive. RSM and family members should discuss with their RCC which benefits they may qualify for based on their particular situation.
