Expanded Caregiver Network for Military Families in Pennsylvania

Veterans

Lehigh County became the state’s fifth county to join the Hidden Heroes network for military caregivers. The network already includes Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

AARP works with the Elizabeth Dole Foundation on the program. Hidden Heroes brings awareness to caregiving for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans, and promotes the Respite Relief Program of free, short-term assistance to their family caregivers.

The Hidden Heroes program helps to link care givers with useful resources and offers health and wellness video recordings.

Pennsylvania is home to nearly 800,000 veterans, and 76 percent are 55 or older, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
