Our Wellness Program supports the mental and physical well-being of America’s injured, wounded, ill, and/or aging heroes and their families. We help heal the visible and invisible wounds they incurred while serving our nation, and empower them to break through boundaries and fulfill their potential.
When confined to a wheelchair, a wounded hero’s self-reliance can be lost, which can severely impact their mental health. We’re providing IBOTs to injured veterans that give back their independence. These high-tech chairs can rise to meet others at eye level and are capable of tackling rough terrain and stairs. With these newfound capabilities and a restored sense of confidence, anything is possible.
Robert’s dedication to fitness has taught him the value of an active lifestyle. For many of our injured heroes, the idea of participating in activities on rocks, sand, snow, and rough terrain seems impossible. We’re providing mobility devices that empower these warriors to navigate inside and outside of the home, and live a fuller life.
We’re providing trained service dogs to veterans and first responders who are overcoming trauma. Dogs sense the invisible wounds that cause debilitating nightmares, social anxiety, and bad thoughts. These life-saving companions anticipate when their heroes are being triggered and rush to provide comfort for their new best friend.
A career in the military can take a toll on the entire family. It can affect their mental well-being and finances. We are providing well-deserved home makeovers and renovations to show our appreciation for the sacrifices our military families make. Home improvements can have a huge impact on their daily lives, and also serve as a reminder of how much the American people care.
Open dialogue is critical to mental health. Through intimate interviews, the Medevac Podcast dives into stories of service, injury, recovery, resiliency, failure, and success which are uniquely experienced by the military and first responders.
