Bridging the Military-Civilian Divide

Operation Family Caregiver: Riverside Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health

OFG

OFGThe strength of our military is legendary. Our military families are strong, too.
Operation Family Caregiver (OFC) coaches the families of returning service members and veterans to managethe difficulties that come with coming home. OFC is a personalized program, tailored specifically to the struggles of each family. Through proven methods, the program teaches military families the skills needed to best navigate their challenges, resulting in stronger and healthier families. Operation Family Caregiver is a program of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving, begun with catalytic funding from Johnson & Johnson.

We provide free and confidential support to the families of those who have served our nation. Our specially trained coaches help military families learn how to overcome the obstacles they face and to manage any challenges that might come along. We will come to your home, or meet by phone/Skype, to customize a 16- to 24-week program that is unique to your family.
