Warrior CARE Events
Warrior CARE Events

Extraordinary service and assistance…

Quality of care for wounded warriors remains a priority for Air Force leadership. The Air Force has and continues to honor the sacrifices of wounded Airmen, and their families and or caregivers by providing the best medical and non-medical professional support throughout their recovery process. Additionally, the Air Force works with each wounded Airman to provide a thorough analysis of opportunities and benefits that are available to medically retired and separated combat veterans.

 

Warrior “CARE” events are offered to all wounded, ill, or injured Air Force service members (active duty, retired, or separated) and authorized caregivers. These event features education in: Caregiver Support, Adaptive & Rehabilitative Sports, Recovering Airman Mentorship, and Employment & Career Readiness.

 

CAREGIVER SUPPORT

This provides personalized support to caregivers who are caring for a wounded, ill or injured warriors. Caregiver focused support is integrated into the wounded warrior’s comprehensive recovery plans. Here, caregivers can expect to connect with other caregivers to form a support network where they can share their experiences, wisdom and skills. Attendees are armed with successful coping tools to assist with managing stress, communicate more effectively, take care of their own health and manage difficult situations.

 

ADAPTIVE & REHABILITATIVE SPORTS

This provides opportunities for recovering service members to develop independence, confidence and fitness through sports - empowering wounded warriors to focus on their abilities and teaching positive coping techniques. Here, participants are introduced to healthy behavior changes, stress management, mental health, nutrition and weight management, physical fitness and activity. Wounded Airmen are also prepared, should they choose, to compete for the Department of Defense Warrior Games and Invictus Games sponsored by Prince Harry.

 

RECOVERING AIRMAN MENTORSHIP

This program works to develop mentors and connect them with other recovering Airmen to promote and encourage healing through the continuum of care - providing and avenue for Airmen to connect with someone who has experienced similar injuries or illness to foster healing for both mentor and mentee.

 

EMPLOYMENT & CAREER READINESS

This program helps facilitate federal employment for wounded warriors. Coordinators review wounded warrior application packages for employment and determine if a locally-funded position is available or will be available within 30 days. Program managers help design an individualized plan of action to secure rehabilitation, training, and successful civilian employment until completion of the civilian employment probationary period. The curriculum includes: career matching, personal branding, interview techniques and resume review to name a few.
