Families Working Together to Improve Our Veterans Quality of Life

We, the relatives and friends of the veterans that reside at the Rhode Island Veterans Home, are solely dedicated to providing a formal vehicle for communication and information sharing between administration,
staff and family members/friends to best serve our loved ones.

ABOUT US

A family council is a group of dedicated family members and friends working together with the facility to improve the quality of life for our loved ones. A family council is unique to each facility. The Rhode Island Veterans Home Family Council was formed in the year 2000 by a core group of family members. Previously, the facility provided a “family support” group run by the Home.
We believe that involvement in this Council helps families and friends resolve their feelings of helplessness and gives them the ability to bring about positive changes, not only for their relatives, but for all veterans.

What is a Family Council?
  • To protect and improve the quality of life for all veterans  living in the Home

  • To empower families to have a voice in decisions which affect them and their loved ones, especially those residents who are unable to speak for themselves

  • To advocate and educate the community on the current  needs of the veterans living in the Home and their family members
