VA Program of General Caregiver Support Services (PGCSS)

The Program of General Caregiver Support Services (PGCSS) is one of two programs within the Caregiver Support Program (CSP). PGCSS provides peer support mentoring, skills training, coaching, telephone support, online programs and referrals to available resources to Caregivers of Veterans. The Veteran must be enrolled in Veterans Affairs (VA) health care and be receiving care from a Caregiver in order for the Caregiver to participate. Caregivers who participate in PGCSS are called General Caregivers. General Caregivers do not need to be a relative or live with the Veteran.
