Easterseals Washington is proud to announce that Heidi Jo Johnson, our local Caregiver Coach for Operation Family Caregiver, achieved an astonishing 86.8% caregiver completion rate in 2018, as compared to the national average of 51.5% for the program overall. This rise represents a major success for the program, and more importantly, a better quality of life for military caregivers and their families across the Pacific Northwest.
OFC is a free and confidential program which helps the families of returning service members and veterans adjust to the "new normal" by coping more effectively with problems they never imagined. Caregivers who complete the program report being more satisfied with their lives, having fewer health issues, and being more prepared to take care of their families.
OFC Caregiver Coach, Heidi Jo Johnson, has been instrumental in elevating the program to new heights:
Thanks to Heidi and OFC, military caregivers are better equipped to overcome obstacles and manage any challenges that might come along.
