Celebrating and Supporting Military Families

By Tom Carroll

Military spouses have an unemployment rate four times the national average (Blue Star Families).While Veterans can be challenged finding appropriate care.

 The employment challenges military families face:

  • Families of active service members often have difficulty finding long-term employment in their stationed communities
  • Pursuit of suitable employment can be complicated by frequent relocations as well as the extra demands that fall on the home front spouse during long deployments
  • 79% feel military spouse status has a negative impact on ability to pursue a career

Veterans and military families have the opportunity to support our communities through employment, business ownership, care recipients and advocates for Veteran’s Benefits. Our commitment to employment fulfills on the service-minded nature of military families. Home Helpers provides the ultimate employment opportunity for trailing family members, and our partnership with MSEP (Military Spouse Employment Partnership) helps qualifies military family members to find careers with local Home Helpers offices.

Veterans can be challenged finding appropriate care. In hopes of changing this, our partnerships with Patriot Angels and Veteran Care Coordination (VCC) provide help with advocacy information so veterans know their benefits and can more easily access care. Veterans can use these services to obtain the Pension with Aid & Attendance benefit.

To support these needs, our Exceptional Caregivers have been trained to aid families who experience a wide variety of care issues. We offer employment services, companion care, transportation services, and personal monitoring through our line of Direct Link® services–offering peace-of-mind knowing that help is a touch of a button away.

At Home Helpers of Media, we understand how to best prepare military families for these circumstances. We have many free guides available, such as “Veterans Care,” ways to live a purposeful life with “Purpose Doesn’t Retire,” and “Compare Cost of Care Options.” Go to to view our free online resources library.
