Caregiver Appreciation Spa Day - Those close to service members are all too familiar with both the invisible and visible wounds that come with war. With those injuries come daily stress and other challenges which can sometimes be unbearable. Our Spa Day is an opportunity for Hearts of Patriots and our community to show support for the amazing individuals who stand by our heroes.
Family Retreats - All retreats are free of charge and include all meals. Hearts of Patriots' retreat focuses on the caregiver believing they are central to the family unit and the ability to, along with their wounded Veteran, work together to find a new normal. In an effort to strengthen marital and family bonds the retreats provide programs/activities and fun for the spouse/partner, Veteran and family. Our goal is to offer both relaxation and education so they may gain a better understanding of PTSD, learn coping skills, and how to move forward together.
About Hearts of Patriots
When veterans return suffering from PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, or both, their transition into civilian can be especially difficult. Co-founded by the wife of a Marine who served in Iraq, Hearts of Patriots understands the challenges faced by caregivers of veterans with invisible wounds of war.
Our mission is to support these hidden heroes on their journey to create a home — and a life — that is once again whole by providing education, resources and support to PTSD combat veteran spouses and their families.
